How do my metrics affect my risk scores?
Our algorithms consider multiple dimensions when calculating your risk score. Here's a few examples:
- The algorithm likely weighs your most recent week’s metrics more than older weeks.
- The pattern of your metrics within a given week also plays a role.
- If only one of your metrics changed, then you may be able to see why your score moved in a particular direction. However, if multiple metrics changed and they changed in conflicting directions, then it’s difficult to determine how a good change in one metric should be weighed against a bad change in another (e.g. your resting heart rate improved, but your exercise minutes regressed).
We're working on adding better ways to analyze risk score changes directly to the app!
