DATA COLLECTION

Plug-and-play solution to collect any data recorded on a Garmin wearable. It cannot be easier.

Fitrockr is a plug-and-play research solution to collect any data recorded on a Garmin wearable. Participants simply wear the Garmin device and regularly synchronize it wirelessly through Bluetooth on their smartphone or via a central tablet. Large data amounts can also be uploaded via usb if needed.  

Step 1 - Select Garmin device most suitable for the study

Garmin offers a wide range of device models covering all possible research use cases. Decide based on supported data types, storage and battery duration. We help you to find the most suitable device whether you purchase through us or directly at Garmin. 

Fitrockr is a corporate solution partner of Garmin since 2018. Fitrockr is one of the Garmin deepest integrated solutions on the market.

Step 2 - Set data sampling rate

Customize the sampling rate for recorded data flexibly by research group or individual user level. 

Totals for each day such as average heart rate, maximum/minimum stress levels, total steps, calories burned, etc.

Sampling rate: Daily

Details for each recorded activity such as GPS information, distance, speed heart rate, temperature, steps per minute, etc. 

Sampling rate: 1-5s

Daily totals split into 15 minute epochs with information on steps, distance, met value, stress, heart rate, motion intensity, etc. 

Sampling rate: 15 minutes

Break down of sleep duration and sleep phases.

Sampling rate: Seconds

Heart rate variability (HRV/BBI) is the time between each individual heartbeat.

Sampling rate: Millisconds

Heart rate data based on each individual heart beat.

Sampling rate: 1-3600s

Stress level and body battery.

Sampling rate: 1-3600s

Pulse oxygen measured by night or 24/7. 

Sampling rate: 1-3600s

Breathing rate.

Sampling rate: 1-3600s

Number of times the signal crosses the zero axis. The acceleration signal measures movement frequency. 

Sampling rate: 30-3600s

Accelerometer measures linear acceleration. 

Sampling rate: 25hz

Gyroscope helps indicate orientation.

Sampling rate: 32hz

Step 3 - Connect and sync Garmin device

Choose from a variety of synchronization use cases, either via the participant’s smartphone or via a central tablet. This covers all current and future research project demands. 

The “Visit” Sync Use Case

The “Visit” use case is described by the fact that study participants regularly visit one or more central sites to sync their Garmin device.

The “Home” Sync Use Case

The “Home” use case is described by the fact that study participants are distributed and sync their Garmin device with their own smartphone at home.

The “Letterbox” Sync Use Case

The “Letterbox” use case is described by the fact that study participants are distributed and send their Garmin device to a central site for syncing.

The “Community” Sync Use Case

The “Community” use case is described by the fact that study participants are syncing via a local community terminal.

MONITORING & ALERTING

Effective monitoring to prevent data gaps during data collection

Fitrockr provides effective and automated monitoring tools to ensure that your participants adhere to the data collection process. No more data gaps due to empty batteries or wearables forgotten to wear.

  • Create free text, multiple choice and single choice questions. 
  • Set dates when each questionnaire should be answered.
  • Schedule notifications to remind participants to provide feedback.
  • Analyze questionnaires on screen or download data in Excel. 
  • Combine feedback with the physiological data collected via the wearables.

DATA ANALYSIS

Access, analyze and export high resolution raw data.

All recorded data can be accessed and analyzed via pre-built standard reports or downloaded as Excel or JSON file format.  

Pre-built standard reports

Access pre-built standard reports to assess participants’ physiological data. All reports can be viewed on screen or downloaded as Excel file.

If standard reports do not cover your needs, we can build a custom report or just download all raw data and build a report in Excel or via a third party research tool.   

High resolution raw data export

Select timeframe, participants and data types and export any data into Excel or JSON format for further analysis.
