I purchased some 3M Micropore tape but then became aware I'm probably breathing in toxic something in the adhesive all night. It has a scent, not strong, but not exactly the smell of garden flowers either

I have an r to r (beat to beat) recording heart rate monitor. I don't wear it too often over night, but some years ago I noticed heart rate patterns that could be construed as apena.
circular wrote:Will have to look into that Oura again. I think I looked at it a couple years ago. Probably like almost all wearables I'm too tiny for it. I have Fitbit Alta HR. I've considered switching to something that will give me VO2 max data, but it seems you can only explore this if you can run? I can't run anymore, only walk, and all the sites seem to be about running and VO2 max. Do you have any thoughts/knowledge about this?
Tincup wrote:I don't really know about VO2 max with respect to wearables. The Oura also tracks activity. I think it uses a 3-D accelerometer. One day skiing it said I got ~2,500 calories extra. The next time it was like 600. The difference in the days was the first one I was doing a lot of mogul runs and less of those on the second. Not sure how it interprets the bouncing. It usually tells me I get 400-600 calories on an active day, but nothing extreme. I'm guessing it is directionally accurate. Obviously no activity is clear, but what it thinks about different activities, I don't know. For example, skiing moguls vs driving over a washboard road.
