We are investigating whether your smartphone and smartwatch data could determine whether or not you have COVID-19

Our team of Duke University doctors and scientists are investigating whether the data from your smartphone and smartwatch can help determine whether or not you have a COVID-19 infection, and how severe the infection is expected to get. All we ask is that you answer two simple questions each day for up to 12 months. We will explore whether there is a relationship with your smartphone and smartwatch data.


We need you!

By joining, you will play a pivotal role in helping our team learn how to detect COVID-19 early in order to facilitate better outcomes for all. Even those who do not display symptoms can spread the disease. We need people like you to help us build powerful detection models that could save lives.


Signup is easy!

Signup on your smartphone, tablet or computer. Then respond to 2 quick questions by iOS app, text message, or email once a day: Were you near family/friends/coworkers? Do you feel sick? If you feel sick, we will ask you a few more questions. You can connect your Fitbit or Garmin today!
