Abstract

Consumer wearables, such as smart watches, are a promising tool for monitoring circadian health in "real world" settings. Bowman et al. demonstrate that circadian signals can be accurately captured through heart rate data obtained from wearables, opening up new possibilities for population-level studies on heart rate and circadian rhythm.
