The Stress Score represents the acute mental stress load on an individual, as measured by the relative changes in heart rate and heart rate variability and can be provided as a daily insight alongside the Daily Readiness.
We use a combination of machine learning informed by selected HRV metrics and context-based reasoning to determine the Stress Score. The Stress Score quantifies the mental stress load from the past 7 days to let the user know if their mental stress load is low, moderate, or high compared to their baseline.
Providing additional metadata and contextual inputs such as sleep and exercise data can help calibrate the Stress Score for greater confidence, and thus is highly recommended.
array of int
An array for inter-beat intervals; at minimum, 60 inter-beat (R-R) intervals are required.
- Minimum requirement of 5 readings on 5 separate days within 10 days to receive a Stress Score insight.
The Stress Score is returned as a part of the output response JSON. The output is a 1-3 integer score that corresponds with a low, moderate, or high mental stress load definition. Some definitions and examples are outlined in the below table.
