Smart Wearable Devices to Accurately Detect COVID-19 Symptoms
Smartwatches are now able to identify the indicators of the deadly coronavirus. In recent research called “Warrior Watch”, examiners at the Mount Sinai medical center discovered that Apple Watch's use could help detect small changes to a user’s heartbeat, indicating they’ve caught the coronavirus up to seven days prior to the apparent symptoms. The study examined a metric called heart rate variability (HRV) — the discrepancy in time between each heartbeat — which is also a step to learn how the immune system is functioning. Thus, through the variability in heart rate, one can predict whether they are infected or not.
