How the data gets collected from a wearable device

A wide varitey of commercial wearables on the market are compatiable with both Apple Health and Google Fit. This allows the wearable device to share its data with the native applications available on both iOS and Android mobile devices.

If you have an iOS device, the wearable device sends its data to Apple Health app

 

If you have an Android device, the wearable sends its data to Google Fit. When you grant permission to TrialKit after signing in, Google Fit will be able to share that data to TrialKit.

What happens with your data when its sent to TrialKit

It is uploaded directly to the database for the study you are participating in. The Sponsor then has access to see that data, which is not attributed to your Personal Identifying information. Sponsors will use the data attributed to your anyonymous participant ID and combine it to other data collected about you in the interests of the study objectives.
