Editor's comments:
  • To maintain a balance lifestyle, one must find ways to monitor the health - there is no way to strike a balance without knowing the current status which requires data and to do that, one must have the ability to monitor and to fine-tune based on the result.
  • For your info, Apple Watch Series 4 has a built-in optical heart sensor and an electrical heart sensor which allows users to take ECG anytime and anywhere.
  • The hope is to monitor your blood Glucose and Ketone levels in order to strike a balance between food intake and energy consumption.
