You Can Now Monitor Autism, Epilepsy & Melanoma On Your iPhone

You Can Now Monitor Autism, Epilepsy & Melanoma On Your iPhone | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Apple’s ResearchKit, an app initiative that enables scientists to (consensually!) gather data from iPhone users and use them in clinical research studies, has added three new research projects to its roster. 

Despite some initial skepticism about personal data security, researchers have embraced this technology as an inclusive, data-rich avenue for advancing study on chronic conditions, health behaviors and more. 


Consumers are embracing it too: Jeff Williams, Apple’s senior vice president of operations, noted that in the six months since ResearchKit has launched, over 100,000 people have opted in to these studies.

Top 12 Reasons People Gave Up on the Apple Watch

Top 12 Reasons People Gave Up on the Apple Watch | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it
Hundreds of Apple Watch owners from across the country open up about the smartwatch
Olivier Janin's insight:

Ben Bajarin who authors The Daily Techpinion blog and worked with Wristly on the survey, said the study also revealed a “bias” against the watch from users who work in the tech industry. These were the strongest critics; some 45 percent of those polled work in the tech field.


The Apple Watch, in its current manifestation and because the concept is so new, (takes) time to truly understand its value,” Bajarin wrote on his blog Monday. “It certainly takes more than two weeks to realize how it fits into your life. But in the future, this will not be the case. This is simply due to the immaturity of the market and the product.”

Apple's idea for a smart ring, may have some traction, but it will likely play into the fashion side of people, the functionality will of course need to be of benefit.  Lots of opportunities for measuring biological measurements.

Apple Watch owners are actually pretty pleased with the device, study shows | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it
People who don't consider themselves techies are big fans of the Apple Watch.
Olivier Janin's insight:

This data are coming from an Apple study based on 800 respondents.

And Apple is to announced his Q3 Earnings tomorrow, so this is biz-com orchestration.


Nevertheless are the KPI interesting, as well as their processing by Apple marketing.

  • Comparable are iPad and iPhone adoption/satisfaction rates at their beginning, It makes sense.
  • Distinction between techies and mass-audience. What about generations ? I think Net-Gen. (25-35 yo) must be considered.
  • criterias are : overall satisfaction / design / quality / performance / battery / ease of use


I worry about this last: with only 43% satisfaction, the design issue remains on how to achieve a new UX/UI syntax for our small wrist-screens paired with our Smartphones.

Apple announces ResearchKit to put iPhones to work for medicine

Apple announces ResearchKit to put iPhones to work for medicine | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it
Apple says it wants the iPhone and HealthKit to be used for medical research. So it has launched a new platform called ResearchKit.
Olivier Janin's insight:

Les annonces de Tim Cook et de son équipe à l'Apple Keynote d'hier soir étaient très excitantes. Celle de l'arrivée du Research Kit est primordiale car il permet à Apple de faire co-exister ses produits grand publics avec la recherche scientifique. La légitimité gagnée est incontestablement positive pour le positionnement de Apple sur le segment prometteur de lla Digital Health. d

Apple Bets IPhone Magic Will Spill Over to Wearables

Apple Bets IPhone Magic Will Spill Over to Wearables | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Apple will introduce a wearable gadget along with new iPhones on Sept. 9, a person with knowledge of the plans said. Notices for the event, which will also take place in Cupertino, were sent out yesterday.


Apple declined to comment beyond the e-mailed invitation, which said: “Wish we could say more.”


While companies such as Fitbit Inc. and Jawbone have made some headway introducing wearables to the public, global sales of the activity trackers hit just 13.6 million units last year, according to researcher Parks Associates. That’s about the number of iPhones Apple sells in a month, giving Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook room to boost the size of the market.


The new device also will give the clearest sign yet of where the company is headed without Steve Jobs at the helm. Cook, who took over almost three years ago to the day, has been under pressure to show that the company will continue to deliver breakthrough products.




“How he’s perceived in the next few years will be decided in the next four months,” said Gene Munster, an analyst at Piper Jaffray Cos., who has the equivalent of a buy rating on Apple’s stock.

Olivier Janin's insight:

The invitations received yesterday by the press confirm that Apple will introduce the new iPhone 6 on September 9th in Cupertino. 

The tone of the invitation keeps the rumors alive about the announcment of the awaited iWatch.

Apple’s medical team for iWatch now includes former Masimo CMO

Apple’s medical team for iWatch now includes former Masimo CMO | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Last week MobiHealthNews reported that one of Apple’s most recent hires — assumedly for its rumored iWatch team — Nancy Dougherty, was a former employee at high profile company Proteus Digital Health.

Following that story, we received a tip that Apple has also hired Michael O’Reilly, the former chief medical officer of Masimo Corporation, which specializes in pulse oximeters. At the very end of 2012 Masimo commercially launched an iPhone-enabled pulse oximeter called the iSpO2. The company was not seeking FDA clearance for the product since it says it’s intended for mountain climbers and airplane pilots.

E-paper bracelets are fast on their way to becoming "the new black" in thefashion tech industry and the Bracelite is the bridge between smart jewelleryand smartwatches. The bangle style wristlet is now up on Kickstarter and the company behind it is seeking €80,000 to help mass produce it.

Olivier Janin's insight:

Kickstarter campaign opened up until Jan, 10th, 2016.


I like this approach of smart accessories linked to a Smartwatch ecosystem. I wonder how open Apple is to these types of additional systems to its Watch.


Pebble on its side has set up an entire ecosystem for the makers /  developers with SDK-API and a complete platform to allow them create additional value with innovative Smart-straps. 

Last Spring,  Pebble turns the tables in its latest venture: The company is pledging $1 million toward the development and commercialization of smart straps for its wearables.

Olivier Janin's insight:

Pairing and using an Android Wear Smartwatch on an iPhone ?

It is now possible. 

Noticeable change in the usual Apple wallet-garden biztech model but it keeps iPhone on a safe position, independant from Smartwatch market.

Yet, the features are not as performant as for an Apple Watch.

Richard Platt's curator insight, September 2, 2015 2:23 PM

In a nondescript conference room at Google’s headquarters a few weeks ago, I paired my iPhone to a smartwatch running Android for the first time. I was there to ask Jeff Chang, the lead product manager for Wear, how he’d managed to get Android watches working with iOS and how much they could do with an iPhone. Then my first notification came in on my newly paired Huawei Watch and my carefully laid plans evaporated.    That’s how it goes with smartwatches. They’re meant to keep you from having to pull your phone out of your pocket. You’re supposed to glance at the notifications and smile inwardly, knowing that you can ignore that ping and focus on who you’re talking to. At their best, they do exactly that. At their worst, they derail a conversation.   They’re also still nascent. Very few people have had to bother grappling with the idea of notifications and computers on their wrists, because not all that many people are buying smartwatches. There’s a real sense that everybody’s waiting to see how things shake out, and I don’t blame them. Smartwatches aren’t really ready for everybody yet, not the way that smartphones are. But the smartphone comparison is apt: nothing drove innovation in that space faster than healthy competition between Apple and Google. If competition is what it takes to get smartwatches ready for the mainstream, even Apple Watch users should be glad about Android Wear coming to the iPhone.

With Apple's new "Health" platform, e may have just witnessed the birth of an ecosystem that follows a similar model to that of iTunes.
Olivier Janin's insight:

There are lots of questions which remain to be clarified. Anyhow, it is just exciting ! 

 

1/ how will Apple define his 3rd party approval process regarding to the FDA Mobile Health clearance ? Will it be mandatory or not ? Nike Fuel is not a Medical device as I know. 

 

2/ Will Apple  point out in Health UI the  difference between Health App and Fitness-Wellbeing ones ?  I attended  Craig presentation at WWDC on Monday ; didn't he make a difference between HealthKit (as a 3rd Party aggregator), and Health as a Medical-Linked Service related to Mayo Clinic ? 

 

3/ Regarding the Dashboard, the challenge will be to design an UI which offer enough granularity and sensible relationship between Datas to make them insightful for the end-user.  I love this challenge, and I am impatient to get into it !

Apple patents smart shoes

Apple patents smart shoes | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

A newly granted Apple patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on last Tuesday describes a system through which your clothing could talk to your iPhone to help it create tailored workouts that know you better than you know yourself.

 

While many companies are looking at wearable computing in the form of smart watches or glasses-based heads-up interfaces (Apple included), there seems to be a background current at Apple devoted to more subtle and invisible incarnations of on-body tech. As with any patents, there’s no guarantee we’ll ever see these inventions ship, but wearable computing is bound to be a growing concern for any major consumer electronics maker in the next few years.
