For sending all the collected data to the smartphone the microchip communicates with bluetooth low energy. Also an e-ink displays all the relevant information.
Ambient brightness, temperature or noise are factors which are monitored with sensors.
The Smartband can also measure vital factors like heart rate or body temperature.
The collected data is shown in different graphs to get better insights. You can switch between activity, sleep, heart rate, body temperature, noise and ambient light.

Fatigue is a syndrome. It accompanies many different chronical diseases (for example cancer, multiple sclerosis and ME). It’s characterized by excessive tiredness, which does not improve well through sleep and is disproportional to any previousactivity.
We want to emphasize that fatigue is not equal to depression. To simplify, while people suffering from fatigue want to engage in activities but can not do so physically.
From an outside perspective it is difficult to imagine, how impactful the level of fatigue is on any given patient. However, it is important to recognize that it is more than just being tired, as patients describe their fatigue as:
exhaustion, weakness, a lack of energy, feeling drained, an inability to stand for even a few minutes, an inability to walk even a few blocks without exhaustion, and an inability to sustain an activity for any significant length of time
