Verily Study Watch

Developing a sensor-based wearable for continuous monitoring

What is Verily Study Watch?

Verily Study Watch is a sensor-based wearable device for non-invasive, continuous monitoring. The Investigational Study Watch is used in research and clinical studies, and the FDA-cleared Study Watch for ECG and Irregular Pulse Monitor is used in care collaborations with our partners.

How does it work?

The ability to passively capture health data is critical to the success of clinical research and continuous care platforms. Built by our team of engineers, clinicians and user experience designers, Study Watch employs specialized sensors and robust cloud infrastructure to capture and analyze physiological and environmental data.

Study Watch collects biometric health information, such as ECG, heart rate, electrodermal activity and inertial movements. Data from Study Watch are uploaded via WiFi or a cellular network using Study Hub, which provides a physical dock to sync the device. Data is processed and stored in our cloud platform using proprietary algorithms, and translated into program-specific dashboards or insights.

Project Baseline, the Personalized Parkinson’s Project and the Aurora Study are currently using the Investigational Study Watch, as are other clinical research programs. For example, in the Aurora study we are identifying novel biomarkers to determine the onset of PTSD and depression and the progression of those conditions. The FDA-cleared Study Watch is a part of our collaboration with iRhythm to improve screening, diagnosis and management of patients with atrial fibrillation.
