I'm not sure I understand … if double-click is (more) resource-intensive than 
single-click, wouldn't a change -- wherein a single-click will show the results 
-- be helpful?

And as far as scrolling the list of days "too", is the concern that the user 
might click on a day simply as a place to mentally pause, or even make a stray 
click on a day, and as a result introduce brief unresponsiveness as the UI 
initiates a query for measurements that were not actually wanted to be seen?
