The tracker's Elevate wrist heart-rate tracking feature quantifies the intensity of a user's fitness activities through the use of designated "intensity minutes," which can help users monitor their progress against activity goals recommended by leading health organizations. A wide variety of screens can be displayed, including stairs climbed (as pictured here).
