For the study, the scientists analyzed data provided by 638 participants within the study called the Framingham Heart Study. The participants were prescribed to wear an Apple Watch every day for at least 5 hours.

The device recorded the number of steps made every day. Also, all the participants had to measure their own blood pressure on a weekly basis at home during the study period (5 months).

Lead author Dr. Mayank Sardana says: “This study solidifies our understanding of the relationship between physical activity and blood pressure and raises the possibility that obesity or [BMI] accounts for a lot of that relationship. […] It would be useful to look at how smart devices might be leveraged to promote physical activity, reduce the burden of obesity, and potentially reduce blood pressure.”
