Case Study: A Custom Wearable Watch for Monitoring Heart Rate, Body Temperature, and Sudden Falls
The wearable industry is constantly growing and evolving, with new products being introduced every year that offer more and more advanced features. Our custom wearable watch is a cutting-edge product that integrates a range of sensors to monitor vital signs and detect sudden falls, providing critical information to keep the wearer safe and healthy. In this case study, we’ll delve into the features of the watch and the IoT development life cycle that we used to build it.
The custom wearable watch integrates heart rate monitoring (HRM), temperature sensing, and an accelerometer to track a range of health metrics. The HRM provides real-time monitoring of the wearer’s heart rate, while the temperature sensor tracks the body temperature, and the accelerometer detects any sudden falls. These sensors work together to provide a comprehensive picture of the wearer’s health, giving them and their caregivers peace of mind.
The watch runs on a tiny lithium-ion battery, which provides long battery life and ensures that the wearer never has to worry about the watch running out of power. The battery is easy to charge, and the watch has a low-power mode that extends the battery life even further.
The watch collects data regularly and sends it over LoRa (Long Range) WAN, which is a sub-gig RF frequency (868 MhAZ). LoRa is touted as one of the best protocols for IoT and is ideal for battery-powered devices due to its low power consumption and built-in security features. This long-range communication capability ensures that the data can be transmitted over long distances, making it ideal for monitoring the wearer’s health even when they’re away from home.
The data collected by the watch is transmitted to the backend, where it is analyzed to provide a general health assessment of the wearer. This information can be used to alert caregivers or emergency services if necessary, providing critical assistance in the event of a sudden fall or other health emergency.
We participated in the complete design and proof of concept phase of the wearable watch, ensuring that the product was optimized for performance and user experience. Our team of engineers and designers worked together to create a product that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing, making it a great choice for anyone looking to stay safe and healthy.
The development of the wearable watch was guided by the IoT development life cycle, which involves several phases including planning, design, development, testing, and deployment. Our team followed this process to ensure that the watch was developed to the highest standards and that it would meet the needs of users.
