The overall specifications of the Study Watch aren’t clear. Its evident that the processor of the watch is quite fast and powerful to perform all the mentioned clinical monitoring. Another fact is the storage which is also unannounced. Guess the storage as big as it needs to store a process of data over long periods.
Battery – the battery back up is for seven days. That is the most we know about this battery. It has an e-ink display.
The company gave out a blog post in which it says, “While numerous wearables exist in the market, we have a particular need outside of these offerings: namely, the scalable collection of rich and complex datasets across clinical and observational studies.”
The user doesn’t have to keep syncing the device. You don’t even have to interact with it frequently. Verily also said, “This infrastructure is highly scalable and can serve population studies consisting of large volumes of data.”
The Study watch is a part of the Parkinson’s project which is a multi-year effort. It will soon be a part of a project which involves monitoring 10,000 people. The project would have a long span.
Smartwatches from the mobiles don’t bother about the health monitor. On the other hand, the Fitbit kind of bands has limited areas. Both are quite expensive and doesn’t live longer. Study Watches with a bit more spaces available for the public use would be better for the future smartwatches.
