EDA sensor is responsible for all this as it can detect small electrical changes in your sweat level of the skin. It will take your reading immediately if you place your palm over the watch face.

Fitbit also allows you to pair it with a new mindful tool in the Fitbit app that allows you to set your weekly goals and reminders and so…on.

Sense allows you to access your stress management score where your heartbeat rate, sleep, and other activities are taken into consideration. 

If you are Fitbit premium user, you will be able to get a more detailed breakdown of how your score is calculated.
