Apple is very proud of saving lives with Apple Watch and no wonder showed at its event today how the smartwatch has already changed the trajectory of many people.
The Apple Watch Series 4 has an electrocardiogram feature that helps detect early heart problems, and wishing to go further, Apple announced Research, an application that will contribute to a variety of health research aimed at improving users’ quality of life as an all.
Interested parties can participate in up to three research programs, and only if they install Research and select the modalities for it. The first is a study that aims to understand the impact of noise pollution on the Apple Watch user’s quality of life. You may participate in the study by allowing audio capture information from the watch to be sent to the World Health Organization and the University of Michigan.
Focused on women, the Apple Women’s Health program, in turn, aims to understand the menstrual cycle of users who agree to participate – again via Research – and the data will be shared with institutions including Harvard University. Apple Heart & Movement, in turn, will team up with the American Heart Association and Brigham & Women’s Hospital to study data on walking, calorie-burning and more.
More Research news will come in the future, probably when watchOS 6 hits the market.
Remember, the Apple Watch Series 5 was made official at today’s event (10) and its biggest news is the always active screen for the user to access information without difficulties or specific movements of the wrist. The company promises that battery life will not be impaired.
