About the Study

Staying active could change more than your life. A collaboration with the American Heart Association and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, the Apple Heart and Movement Study explores the link between physical activity and heart health. The research study identifies factors affecting heart health, mobility and heart function over time.

Until now, conducting large-scale health studies has been much more time-consuming and expensive. Wearable devices like Apple Watch and iPhone are changing this by seamlessly capturing health information, including signals from your heart, your level of motion, and activity throughout the day. By downloading the research app and sharing health and activity data from your Apple Watch, researchers will better understand potential early warning signs of heart issues and create interventions and products that can help us all lead longer, healthier and more active lives.
