The innovation researchers belong to the American “Mount Sinai” School of Medicine, which funded the study in full, and this feature is expected to be available in smart watches after the completion of more other studies..
According to the study, which was published in the journal “Jamia Open”, the algorithms developed by the researchers are able to take advantage of the information collected by smart watches about the state of our bodies, such as heart rate, and employ them to give insight into mental health..
