I recently came down with the flu - which caused me to miss several holiday parties as well as a few days of work.

If wearing a strap around your chest isn't ideal, take a look at this FitBit on steroids. Not only does it do sleep tracking, activity tracking, and heart rate detection; it includes your PAI score.

So now you don't have to wonder how sleep is affecting your resting heart rate or number of steps - you can use the app to set a target PAI number.
This Nashville based company is trying to improve the level of care and safety of aging adults.
