The future of health research is you! Now you can contribute to groundbreaking health research in women’s health, hearing health or heart health simply by using your Apple Watch and iPhone, and the Research app. Your data and participation will help advance researchers' understanding of these areas in health that have not been well understood until now and could lead to the development of new products that will help millions lead longer and healthier lives. 1. Join the Apple Women’s Health Study, conducted in partnership with the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and National Institue of Health Sciences to help advance the understanding of menstrual cycles and health conditions such as infertility, osteoporosis, and menopause. 2. Join the Apple Heart and Movement Study, conducted in partnership with the American Heart Association and Bringham and Women's Hospital to help advance discovery in heart science and to help us learn how activity and your habits can contribute to a healthier heart. 3. Join the Apple Hearing Study, conducted in partnership with the University of Michigan to help advance the understanding of how sound exposure levels over time can impact your hearing, stress levels, and cardiac health. Features: Review available studies, learn about the research partners and the research goals, understand study expectations, and if you are eligible, enroll by providing your consent. Choose which data to share and with what study, and review and manage data collected. Perform relevant tasks for enrolled studies. Learn how other Apple research studies have contributed to advancements in health science and to the development of innovative health products.

This app would be better if it had study’s aimed towards at men…. Also some more in-depth study’s for mental health!
Being truly impressed with the health features of the new Apple Watch, I resolved to do my part in participating in the research app. I immediately ran in a huge bug trying to register with the heart study. In filling out the profile, one of the fields asks for date-of-birth. Unlike most other forms that pop up direct input fields, this form required me to scroll back month-by-month starting with the current month to get the the calendar month and year of my birth (!!). Let’s see; if a person is thirty five, that’s potentially 34*12+6 = 414 calendar months they will have to scroll through to get to their birth month. If someone is 64 years old, you’re talking 63*12+6 = 762 calendar months they must scroll through - month by month! Really?! To make matters worse, the app has no clear provision for reporting bugs. APPLE, you’re better than this. Hopefully someone will read this review and pass this app back to QA. I still support the goal and will keep an open eye for the next revision.
I just wanted to write to balance out the absurd comments that somehow you should be compensated for this. Contributing to science and medicine/research is compensation enough, especially when this is so low effort and discrete.
The app overall is pretty good but I’ve experienced bugs in the hearing study where the test just freezes on my phone or it starts doing it but instantly says my AirPods are disconnected even though they’re not. I want to do the survey but the app doesn’t seem to work.
I find this health App helps me help myself. Twqhe recordings of my activity help scientist help future generations. With any luck my family will be healthier for it.I hope more do this. It will give a window into patterns that we might not be able to see that we do yourselves .Great way to help health advances .
I am very thrilled to be a part of something for the greater good as a whole. Data used in this way given with consent and with transparency allowing me the “user” to become ok with it. Research and development are essential in all areas. When it’s stolen or manipulated or so long that the user won’t even read is not right. Thank you , that’s it
I am thankful for allowing me (as part of us) to participate in the research. I try to complete it as soon as new tasks are available, but since I am on my iPad more than the phone, I do not see the tasks sometimes. When is iPad support, at least for questionnaires and activities that do not require the watch, be available? Add more studies!
I personally disagree and do not think that monetary compensation is, in any way, necessary for one’s participation in these studies. The only reward I expect is the satisfaction of knowing how by doing these, I am able to help contribute to furthering research and science. Isn’t a contribution to humankind, enough? Because it is for me… I would never expect anything in return for mostly inactive monitoring thru an Apple Watch with the occasional 5 second survey; but I’m also a nurse, so perhaps it has to do with the field I’m already working in, and the fact that I want to actively contribute to the development and improvement of our federal as well as state healthcare systems, as well as the studies we rely on in order to treat these conditions. Furthermore; the app itself is incredibly easy to use, beautiful interface, collects data wonderfully and stores it in the health app as well, etc. and the synchronicity between the Apple Watch and iPhone is pretty friggin cool — I rarely have to actually open the app most of the monitoring is done in the background effortlessly primarily thru Apple Watch and iPhone. The survey’s are both necessary as well as quick and concise. Fantastic app; and good on Apple for furthering research for humanity :)
It may be out of your control, but it would be nice to have more research studies.
