Simple detection of new coronavirus symptoms requires only an electrocardiogram combined with blood oxygen detection.
Therefore, some functional wearable devices currently on the market seem to have certain new crown detection capabilities.
According to relevant media reports, Apple recently officially launched a research project on Apple Watch.
It will jointly conduct research with the University of Washington
and the Seattle Flu Research Center.Explore whether the information collected through Apple Watch and iPhone can detect early signs of respiratory diseases such as new coronary pneumonia.

he will get an Apple Watch for free,The device will use the mobile phone to report information about the user’s health and activities, but the user needs to report the investigation through the tracking APP,
and answer questions about respiratory symptoms and lifestyle questions weekly and monthly.
In addition, if the user becomes ill during the study, Apple will provide a free, nasal swab to detect the new coronavirus and other respiratory diseases,
and the user needs to use the Apple Watch to take some additional health measurements.
It is reported that this study is expected to take “up to 6 months.”At present, Apple only convenes participants in the Seattle area. People over 22 years old and have iPhone 6s and above models hope to participate.
