I am looking for a wearable tracker to quantify and manage my hypothyroidism. I’m having some difficulty looking through the options. Often their websites aren’t clear about what exactly is tracked and how much access to the data I would have. I’m hoping that someone can give me suggestions as to which products to look at.
My requirements for a tracker are:
It tracks sleep (nighttime and naps)
It tracks absolute body temperature (not relative to a baseline, because I expect my baseline to change over time)
It tracks heart rate
I can export the “raw data” (each individual temperature and heart rate measurement, and when I was asleep)
I don’t care about the display or smart features like being able to answer calls/texts on the device. Any advice you could give would be much appreciated! Thanks!
Oura Ring and Whoop both measure temperature, but only tell you deviations from a baseline that they calculate. There’s no way to get the absolute temperature measurements, as far as I know.
On second thought I am thinking it may be better for me to measure core temperature rather than skin temperature. I saw something a while back that described someone using these sensors that look like coin batteries to measure body temperature. I will post it here when I managed to find it.
