Wearables to measure wellbeing

Detecting stress

Wellbeing at work and working efficiency are connected, and one of the factors leading to reduced work wellbeing is stress. In this POC, it was studied how to use smartwatch sensors to measure employees’ stress through applying machine learning algorithms. The results show that stress can be detected using smartwatch sensors, but due to differences between people it still needs to be studied how the recognition could be done more accurately.
