What’s my daily readiness score in the Fitbit app?
Redefine your routine with daily readiness, a Fitbit Premium score that uses insights from your body to show you whether you’re ready to work out or should prioritize recovery.
Understand what’s best for your body with your daily readiness score, available with a Fitbit Premium membership. Check the Fitbit app each morning to see your score, ranging from 1 to 100, based on your activity, sleep, and heart-rate variability.
A high readiness score (30 or above) means you’re ready to exercise. When you check your score in the Fitbit app, you’ll see suggested Fitbit Premium workouts and a personalized Active Zone Minutes goal to help you stay motivated.
A low readiness score (29 or lower) suggests you should prioritize recovery and let your body and mind relax. Allowing your body to recover is an essential part of achieving any health and wellness goals. When you check your score in the Fitbit app, you’ll see personalized recommendations for Premium content like guided meditations, stretching, and yoga to help you recharge or better manage stress.
Your daily goals and recommendations adapt with you over time.
- From the Today tab in the Fitbit app, tap the Daily Readiness tile . Note that to see a daily readiness score, you must be a Fitbit Premium member.
- Follow the on-screen instructions to get started.
- Wear your device at least 14 hours per day for 4 days, including during sleep. Check the Daily Readiness tile in the Fitbit app to see the time remaining until your first score is available.
- Wear your Fitbit device for a full day (at least 14 hours), including to sleep at night.
- In the morning, open the Fitbit app and tap the Today tab Daily Readiness tile .
Your score ranges from 1 to 100 with the following categories:
- Low readiness = 1 - 29
- Good readiness = 30 - 64
- Excellent readiness = 65 - 100.
When you check your score, you’ll also see a breakdown of what impacted your score, a personalized activity goal for the day, and recommended workouts or recovery sessions based on your score.
On Fitbit Sense and Fitbit Versa 3, swipe up from the clock screen to see your daily readiness score on your wrist.
Your daily readiness score is based on data collected by your Fitbit device, broken down into the following categories:
- Activity: Your level of fitness fatigue, which is based on your heart-rate data for the past couple weeks. High fitness fatigue means you should take it easy, while low fitness fatigue means you should prioritize recovery. Note that only activities that raise your heart rate to fat burn, cardio, or peak heart-rate zones impact your score.
- Sleep: How much you slept in the past week. If you’ve been experiencing poor sleep, your body might not be ready to exercise.
- Heart-rate variability (HRV): The variation in time between your heartbeats, based on data collected over the past month. HRV impacts your body’s ability to recover. Higher HRV may indicate that your body is better able to quickly shift between periods of rest and intense activity, while lower HRV may indicate your body is experiencing stress, strain, or illness. For more information about HRV, see How do I track heart rate with my Fitbit device?
Before you receive your first daily readiness score, you wear your Fitbit device continuously for 4 days to get your baseline. Your readiness score is then based on how your stats in each category compare to your personal baseline. This data helps you understand how your activity levels, sleep patterns, and stress from the previous days contribute to your energy levels. Wear your device consistently for at least 2 weeks to develop a more accurate personal baseline.
Tip: To get the most out of your daily readiness score, aim for at least 30 minutes of activity that increases your heart rate 3 times per week.
