Breathing Rate or Respiratory Rate is a measurement of your average breaths per minute at night. The Fitbit smartwatch uses body sensors to record the average number of breaths you take per minute while you’re asleep and provides a summary value when you’re awake. This allows you to better monitor your vitals and general health throughout the day.
Developers can use the following API endpoints when integrating the Breathing Rate data type:
- Get Breathing Rate Summary by Date returns single date summary data.
- Get Breathing Rate Summary by Interval returns interval summary data for a specified date range.
If your application has been granted intraday access, the following endpoints can be used. See Intraday.
