    Wonder if this would be helpful in showing our level of disability?

    Saw how it suggests how much sleep to recover from workouts and if today is a good workout day. Wonder if it would be applicable for people with our illness, mild to moderate, not the severe!

    Hm. That's a gadget marketed to people with cash to burn, looks like a wrist HRM/fitness tracker with a hot-swap battery and proprietary software. Cute toy, possibly with with some interesting software interpreting the data, but probably not used by pro athletes. Wrist HRM is not as accurate as a chest strap and you don't need to continuously monitor it.
    I've also found fitness trackers to be highly inaccurate about some functions, when I had one it had no clue how long I actually slept. It can't be used for disability determination, as you can mount the thing to a ceiling fan, stick it on a puppy, swap it between people, lay it over a phone which runs an app to fool the sensor (it measures HR via light) etc etc, so as configured, it offers legal proof of exactly nothing.

    Answers: No and no.
