Will we detect coronavirus infection in the future with smart watches?

Smart watches could play a very important role in the fight against coronavirus!

The usual analysis of the test for the new coronavirus (Covid-19) in Slovenia together with the preparation of the sample takes from three to five hours. The technology will soon allow us to take the test ourselves or a smartwatch for us. Researchers at the Mount Sinai Institute have come to the conclusion that the Apple Watch smartwatch can detect small changes in the way the user’s heart beats, which could indicate an infection with a new coronavirus.

Researchers at the Mount Sinai Institute believe that an Apple Watch smartwatch could detect coronavirus infection as long as a week before we actually get sick. It is therefore not surprising that a company is already developing a dedicated wearable device that we will be able to use to detect coronavirum infection. This, in turn, is expected to help drastically reduce infections, as an infected person could self-isolate before becoming contagious to other people.

As the development of coronavirus detection technology with the help of wearable devices is still in the development phase, it is not yet known when we will be able to use it in practice. This, however, is unlikely to happen any time soon. Before the introduction of innovations, a lot of testing will be needed, in order to increase their accuracy and, above all, reliability.
