    256|Wearable Technology

     
    This week we’re talking about wearable technology.
     
    Topics Discussed In This Episode:
    What biohacking is and how it intersects and relates to wearable technology.
    Examples of popular biohacking technology.
    The potential for a future episode about testing technology.
    How Leanne came to learn more about wearable technology.
    What the Oura Ring is, how Leanne discovered it, and what it does.
    What resting heart rate means and what a healthy one looks like.
    An explanation of heart rate variability.
    Why the Apple Watch is a useful piece of wearable tech and what it can be used to measure.
    Which data numbers are expected to be elastic.
    What Firstbeat Life technology is and the data it provides.
    Leanne’s primary objective in gathering health data.
    What subjective measures of wellness are.
    Why Leanne is a big fan of wearable tech.

    Key Takeaways:
    Biohacking is when we take science, technology, nature, and use it to enhance our physicality and our health.
    Wearable technology is great for people who love data, but also works well for people who prefer to read the headlines.
    If you have a high resting heart rate, you will likely not have healthy rate variability.
    You should know your resting heart rate as a measure of your health, because there’s a lot of information you can gather by knowing it.
    Data compiled from different types of technology can be used to paint a more detailed picture of your health.
    Wearable technology is useful for ensuring you reach adequate levels of recovery and stress.
    Wearable tech data helps you back up subjective measures of wellness.
    Wearable technology should be used to track lifestyle balance and overall wellness.
    Tech-gathered data can be used to help you anticipate a forthcoming issue or illness.
    If you get caught up in the data or have anxiety around fluctuating numbers, wearable technology may not be for you.

    Action Steps:
    If you want to try out some wearable tech, consider these three options:

    * Oura Ring - a guide for ​​sleep, activity, and nervous system regulation.
    * Apple Watch - heart rate, heart rhythm, and measures of movement.
    * Firstbeat Life - for balancing stress and recovery.
