Use of wearable devices in individuals with or at risk for cardiovascular disease

JAMA Network Open

Peer-Reviewed Publication

JAMA Network

About The Study: Among individuals with or at risk for cardiovascular disease, fewer than 1 in 4 use wearable devices, with only half of those reporting consistent daily use, according to the results of this study based on a nationally representative sample of U.S. adults in 2019 and 2020. As wearable devices emerge as tools that can improve cardiovascular health, the current use patterns could exacerbate disparities unless there are strategies to ensure equitable adoption. 

Authors: Rohan Khera, M.D., M.S., of the Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut, is the corresponding author.
