OLATHE, Kan./October 20, 2022/Business Wire — Garmin Health, a leading global provider of smartwatches, fitness trackers and digital enterprise health solutions, today announced a renewed focus on research studies with the debut of Garmin Health Research Solutions, an online resource featuring more than 500 research projects and third-party studies that successfully demonstrate how Garmin wearable devices and the Garmin Health Connected Ecosystem are used to measure activity and biometrics to help advance health research.

“We are gratified that hundreds of scholars, scientists and clinicians are leveraging Garmin wearable device data such as heart rate, HRV, stress, sleep, and other important metrics to achieve meaningful research outcomes,” said Jörn Watzke, Garmin Health senior director of B2B sales. “Whether it is access to high-resolution raw data, independent data hosting or full wearable device control, the Garmin Health ecosystem offers researchers everything they need to conduct best-in-class studies across a wide range of topics.”

Successful research studies receiving third-party validation have been conducted in the areas of Parkinson’s Disease medication management, panic attack prediction, COVID-19 infection prediction and vaccination reactions, remotely monitored employee exercise programs, exercise and stroke patients, the impact of music on runners and the body’s response to negative self-talk.
