WearCare Campaign

Caroline, Adrian, Leticia

What is the problem you are trying to solve?

We are finding a responsible and user-friendly approach to conveying this information to the public entails weighing factors like precision, openness, privacy, and clarity. The aim is to narrow the divide between the intricate data gathered by wearables and the public's comprehension, guaranteeing that the information is disseminated in an informative manner and mindful of individual health privacy.

What is the summary?

Overall, wearable devices offer numerous benefits for health monitoring, convenience, motivation, personalization, and integration with other technologies. However, users should be mindful of privacy concerns, reliability issues, dependency risks, costs, and limited use cases when considering the adoption of wearable technology.

Wearable devices, ranging from smartwatches to fitness trackers, have become integral to our daily lives, seamlessly collecting and transmitting personal data. However, their convenience also raises concerns about data security and privacy. With the potential for sensitive health and location information to be compromised, ensuring robust security measures is crucial. Device manufacturers and developers must prioritize encryption, authentication protocols, and user consent mechanisms to safeguard users' data from unauthorized access or exploitation.

What’s the problem?

To aid users in understanding wearable data for the well-being of society.

Should we trust Apple with Mental Health data? The Verge, Elizabeth Lopatto

“There’s some behavioral science, but also — because I was using it — I discovered that the constant nudging for achievement made me miserable. I began to think of it as my failure bracelet.”

Doctors say most metrics provided by your Apple Watch, or Fitbit aren’t helpful to them USA TODAY, Dalvin Brown

“The founder of Cardiologs, Yann Fleureau, told USA TODAY that fitness trackers are seen as ‘pre-clinical devices that enable patients to get to the doctor and start relevant care.’ Doctors seem to be OK with their patients' affinities with wearables, as long as they recognize that the gadgets are noncertified and that the data is nonclinical."

Can We Trust the Heart Rate Data on our Smartwatches?

Medium,Volodymyr Hrunskyi

“Even if the patient is healthy, false triggers can still cause problems: they can cause stress and anxiety and push patients to seek unnecessary medical care. Even people who have no symptoms may feel the need to talk to their doctor about their watches’ abnormal readings. All this, according to scientists, can lead to the overuse of the healthcare system.”

What Is Our Solution?

How would this be implemented?

What this could become?

WearCare Awareness Campaign

  • Be able to talk with health professionals
  • Collaborate with health organizations
  • Explore our educational workshops
  • Build a lively, health community

This solution will provide people who wear or don’t wear wearable technology, a stronger awareness of what is done with their data and what they could learn from their data, to create a healthier society.

“Worn for health and fitness tracking, wearable tech enhances mobility, prioritizing comfort and accessibility. The user values automatic updates for cybersecurity, values security measures like password protection, and emphasizes privacy through location and content restrictions. Staying connected to a charger is a lifestyle adjustment, with future hopes for improved battery life and stronger glass for usability.”
