Summary of the headline:
- More than 250,000 people use Cardiogram for Apple Watch or Android Wear each month, generating more than 30 billion heart rate measurements with which we’ve trained DeepHeart, an AI-based algorithm to assess cardiovascular risk.
- Researchers at Cardiogram and UCSF validated the accuracy of DeepHeart, a deep neural network, in distinguishing between people with and without diabetes, achieving 85% accuracy on a large data set which included 200 million heart rate and step count measurements.
- JH: A new N=14,011 study shows heart rate sensors you’re wearing already—like the Apple Watch, Android Wear, Garmin, or Fitbits—can detect early signs of diabetes.
- BB: Cardiogram is currently compatible with Apple Watch (all versions) and any Android Wear watch with a heart rate sensor, including the Huawei Watch, LG Watch Sport, LG Watch Urbane, Moto 360, New Balance RunIQ, Polar M600, Montblanc Summit, Misfit Vapor, and Mobvoi Ticwatch S&E.
- Cardiogram, the HealthKit-enabled Apple Watch app powering an ongoing University of California, San Francisco heart study, received a major update on Thursday with support for native watchOS 2 operation, a new complication, 3D Touch support for iPhone 6s and a refreshed look.
