Abstract P115: Older Age And Health Status Are Associated With Smartwatch Use Over 12 Months In The Electronic Framingham Heart Study

Introduction: Long-term use is critical for successful clinical or research applications of digital devices, but digital health studies are challenged by significant early discontinuation of use.

Hypothesis: We sought to identify factors associated with long-term use of a smartwatch among participants enrolled in the electronic Framingham Heart Study (eFHS). We hypothesized that sociodemographic and health variables are associated with watch use.
