The ultimate self-own is paying Gyroscope to tell you that you’re pretty much a walking corpse.

The greenish hue falls apart really quick 😅

I’m actually not dying as quickly as the quantitative metrics would say. It’s a pretty interesting anecdote of where the numbers can fall apart; they have a recency bias, and struggle to capture very different types of people. They also don’t capture progression that effectively.

Am really excited about how apps like Gyroscope can predict cardio symptoms. That little Tachycardia metric is fairly effective and accurate; it can be problematic to collapse on a simple report card letter that doesn’t show the work, but in my case, it is correct.
