Paving the way to a better future

I just like to think that if I could help and contribute to medical science, it’s the least I could do in this thoroughly thought out way by using our devices. With that note though, I like to say that since I’ve been in this research app, my Apple Watch battery level has been draining significantly.

Battery Drain is insane !!!

I love the idea to use my watch to contribute to science, but this battery drain is really bothering me. The app on the watch seems to be really active today 2:51 minutes running in the background thats just insane and the worst part is In getting less then 18 hours out of a charge. usually I by the end of the day Im down to 63% with this study Im now down to 30% Im getting tired of charging my watch now twice a day. My ? is what are you collecting that requires running this app 2:51 in the background ? Im starting to thing your collecting more then you said you would collect.

To enter the study your given all this Hippa consent forms to sign but why if your not collecting my exact location why do I need to give permission ? The example info shown doesn't require 2:51 to collect nor does transmitting question data back. The funny thing is your not collecting exact location or but with a Hippa consent it would be easy to locate me.

Great idea but I value my privacy and it seems like your collecting alot more then you said you would. If I was you Id uninstall !!!!

Love the idea but killing watch battery

I really want to do this, it’s great way to get research data. The big but is that it is killing my battery life. I use to end the day with enough charge (usually at 70-75%) to do a quick (less than 30 minutes) charge to full and wear to bed and another quick charge to full in the morning (battery was usually at 80-85%). With research running battery is almost empty [25%} at end of day and at 60% in the morning. Both of these require a long enough charge that I don’t wear the watch much.
