Found one article which aimed to validate the bangle.js2 with a very popular existing research watch: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s12662-022-00813-2
Found another article entitled "Activity tracker-based intervention
to increase physical activity in patients

Hi - this could be interesting - I know a German university used a bunch of Bangle.js 1s to attempt to detect certain behaviours (drinking, smoking, etc). I'll try and get some more information for you early next week
@HeatherShaw - Yep, we have developed an entire platform around the BangleJS2 and various sensors for physiology, behaviour, etc. We just finished a 24h comparison study of the activity tracking to other wearables, and we have quite a bit of the logic already coded, with its own application for uploading data to our servers/cloud infrastructure.
We have a long term study ongoing right now throughout the summer to monitor people.
Let me know if you want to chat more. :)
Thank you very much @nravanelli and for getting in touch via email as well. I was thinking of open source solutions that mirrored the ethos of of the Bangle.js
I am a researcher at Lancaster University UK wondering if anyone has used the Bangle.js 2 in any academic research looking into behaviour change/behaviour biometrics or wellbeing. I am interested in exploring how wearable and mobile technologies can be used to study these topics.
