Anything for measuring stress?

Been wondering - do you use a wearable or an app that tracks your stress level? Do you think that stress is quantifiable (something like universal stress level)?

I’ve done some reading in this area and found that for what I as most interested in tracking, negative stress, some active entry was needed. However, active tracking can be quantitative. For instance, when measuring negative things I’m concerned about, I find it useful to use a binary measure: is the phenomenon strongly present? Since for topics like anger, craving, or stress the strong incidents are much more distressing than the mild incidents, I prefer not to trouble myself with ambiguous occurrences and just focus on learning about the unambiguous ones.
