Fitbit goes to Space: NASA will be using Fitbit devices to prevent the spread of COVID-19
Last year, Fitbit introduced its Ready for Work solution to help employers with the challenge of returning to the workplace during the COVID-19 pandemic. The program gives people access to key health metrics from their Fitbit devices and allows them to log their exposure, symptom, and temperature readings, via the Daily Check-In feature.
According to some studies, measuring the resting heart rate with a wearable device in conjunction with other metrics may lead to better early detection and monitoring of COVID-19. It’s not clear whether astronauts would actually use Fitbit Charge 4 trackers in Space but NASA says that if the pilot program proves to be successful, the agency may consider expanding it to a larger employee population.
