Mobistudy supports a rich set of data collection tasks:

Forms and questionnaires.

Researchers can define their own questionnaires. Branching and answer-based logic are also supported.

Data extraction from Google Fit and Apple HealthKit.

Through transparent and explicit consent, participants can share data collected by the phone such as: steps count, weight, height, physical activity, distance, calories and heart rate. These data can be produced by the phone itself or by any connected app or wearable device that is compatible with Google Fit or Apple HealthKit.

Data collection from wearable devices.

If you don't want to use third-party apps, we also support direct data extraction from the Xiaomi Miband3 fitness tracker. The device can provide minute-by-minute steps count, activity level, activity type and heart rate.
