How does each data source impact my participants' experience?

How participants interact with the apps will vary based on the data source you are collecting from and your study protocol.

All participants must download and connect to both the Garmin Connect app and the PhysioQ Connect app once at the outset of the study. 


 

garmin Collecting data from Garmin Health Cloud ONLY

If you are collecting physiological data from Garmin Connect only, your participants will need to open the Garmin Connect app once every 3-4 days to sync the data.

Notes/Things to pay attention to:
-  While the Garmin app is syncing, you can still use your phone (i.e. can still send messages, answer calls, browse the web, etc.)
- You must have internet connection and bluetooth enabled in order for sync to be successful.

If you are collecting physiological data from both the Garmin Connect and PhysioQ Connect apps, your participants will need to:
1. open the Garmin Connect app once every 3-4 days to sync the data and
2. open the PhysioQ Connect App daily to sync the data.

 

Notes/Things to pay attention to:

-  If you forget to sync PhysioQ Connect one day, the syncing time the next time you open the app will be doubled
-  While the Garmin app is syncing, you can still use your phone (i.e. can still send messages, answer calls, browse the web, etc.)
-  You must have internet connection and bluetooth enabled in order for sync to be successful (for both Garmin and PhysioQ Connect). 


For IOS user

With IOS, best practice is to keep the app open at the foreground during sync to ensure best quality of data collection. Once app hits 100% sync, you can close it, otherwise it is recommended to keep it running in the background.


For Android user
PhysioQ app autosyncs in background with Android, meaning you can do other things while sync occurs. Once app hits 100% sync, you can close it in the background.
