About This Project
The best sensor is the one you’re already wearing.
Smartwatches contain sensors already used by scientists to study the ocean, like a GPS, barometer, and thermometer. This project aims to measure the physical properties of the coastal ocean by turning smartwatches into smart sensors. We will create an app to measure, view and share data, then test the sensors against commercially available sensors to determine if they can be used for research and monitoring the coastal ocean.
