Will the Sept 2019 Apple Keynote highlight how Apple Watch users share their Health data with their doctor?
Apple, often host an annual keynote event around September, we believe that wearables will be a hot topic in their next event.
Apple built a heart rate sensor into the very first version of the Apple Watch in 2015, and has continued to add onto its capabilities. Its latest improvements were adding the electrical sensors needed to form an electrocardiogram (ECG), which measures the characteristics of the electrical signals that govern the pumping of the heart muscle.
On Nov. 1, 2018, Apple announced a total of 419,093 people have enrolled in the Stanford study, and results are expected this year.
This study suggests that Apple is exploring the potential applications of wearables in Health. So.... Will the Sept 2019 Apple Keynote highlight how Apple Watch users share their Health data with their doctor?
Metaculus help: Predicting
Predictions are the heart of Metaculus. Predicting is how you contribute to the wisdom of the crowd, and how you earn points and build up your personal Metaculus track record.
The basics of predicting are very simple: move the slider to best match the likelihood of the outcome, and click predict. You can predict as often as you want, and you're encouraged to change your mind when new information becomes available. With tachyons you'll even be able to go back in time and backdate your prediction to maximize your points.
The displayed score is split into current points and total points. Current points show how much your prediction is worth now, whereas total points show the combined worth of all of your predictions over the lifetime of the question. The scoring details are available on the FAQ.
Note: this question resolved before its original close time. All of your predictions came after the resolution, so you did not gain (or lose) any points for it.

Metaculus help: Community Stats
Use the community stats to get a better sense of the community consensus (or lack thereof) for this question. Sometimes people have wildly different ideas about the likely outcomes, and sometimes people are in close agreement. There are even times when the community seems very certain of uncertainty, like when everyone agrees that event is only 50% likely to happen.
When you make a prediction, check the community stats to see where you land. If your prediction is an outlier, might there be something you're overlooking that others have seen? Or do you have special insight that others are lacking? Either way, it might be a good idea to join the discussion in the comments.
