Verily Intros New 'Study Watch', A Health-Focused Smartwatch
"Multiple physiological and environmental sensors are created to measure relevant signals for studies spanning cardiovascular, movement disorders, and other areas", says Verily in a post announcing the device.
Because the investigational device stores health data, all data are encrypted on the device for security.
The Study Watch is Verily's debut in the field of investigational devices as it's the first one by the organization.
Sure enough, partners will use the new Study Watch for their own purposes. This ability helps to set continuous care platforms and clinical research in accordance with the data attained. Examples include electrocardiograms, heart rate, electrodermal activities and inertial movements.
The watch's battery can last up to one week, which puts other smartwatches on the market to shame.
To make the Study Watch even more friendly for users who might be self-conscious about wearing a medical device, the Study Watch includes an always on display with a crisp, high resolution display.
The Verily smartwatch has a powerful processor which supports real-time algorithms on it.
The Study Watch will likewise be tasked with some important research, gathering vital signs for ongoing work like the Personalized Parkinson's Project, which is investigating patterns in the disease's progression and identifying the building blocks for a potential cure. While it may not be a super great smartwatch for regular consumers that want smartphone notifications and the like on their wrist, the VerilyStudy Watch still looks like a nice little timepiece. It's always on, but will only show the time and specific instructions, with no other data fed back to the user.
David He, technical lead; Tushar Parlikar, product manager; and Harry Xiao, technical program manager at Verily, explain in a blog post that the Study Watch will be used in several studies. Aside from week-long battery life, Verily says that the watch's large internal storage and data compression mean that it will store data for weeks at a time and wearers won't have to sync it very often.
