The Digital Agenda Observatory


The optical heart rate sensor can also use infrared light. Apple Watch uses this mode when measuring heart rate in the background and for heart rate notifications. Apple Watch uses green LED lights to measure heart rate during workouts and breathing exercise sessions, and to calculate walking average and heart rate variability (HRV).

Location of photodiodes, infrared LEDs, and green LEDs on Apple Watch Series 6.

Apple Watch Series 4, Series 5, Series 6 or Series 7 * also have electrodes built into the Digital Crown and on the back of the watch, which are able to measure the heart’s electrical signals in conjunction with the Heart Rate app or the ECG app. When you place your  a closed circuit is created between the heart and the arms and electrical signals are detected in the heart.

To measure your heart rate using the electrical heart sensor, open the Heart Rate app and place your finger on the Digital Crown. The reading is faster and more reliable, as you get a measurement every second instead of every 5 seconds.

When you look at the recorded heart rate data in the Health app, you may see “ECG” in More Heart Rate Info. You can also use the electrical heart sensor to track an ECG with the ECG app.

* ECG app is not supported on Apple Watch SE. The ECG app is currently only available in certain countries and regions. Find out where the ECG app is available.For best resultsWear the watch correctly. Even under ideal conditions, Apple Watch may not always be able to take a reliable heart rate reading for everyone.

For a small percentage of users, several factors may even make it impossible to read the heart rate. However, there are a few steps you can take to help Apple Watch get the most consistent and accurate heart rate readings possible. Find out about other factors that affect reading.

The Digital Agenda Observatory, now in its ninth edition, aims to offer Decision Makers interpretative models, tools based on solid empirical evidence and spaces for comparison to implement the opportunities offered by

Digital Innovation in relation to some major issues that affect the competitiveness of the Country (efficiency of the PA, fight against tax evasion, development support, etc.).  intends to be a qualified, independent, lasting and stable

“place” over time in which to develop dialogue between the world of digital innovation and that of politics, government and public administration.The 2021 Research of the Digital Agenda ObservatoryAs part of Research 2021, the Observatory aims to study and investigate the following issues:

– Implementation:In continuity with the research of previous years, the line identifies the priorities for strategic intervention and monitors the implementation of the plans for the digitization of the country. To do this, the Observatory enables comparisons both at an international level with the

European DESI data, and at a territorial level through the regional DESI developed starting from 2016. In addition to the centrality of the Regions, the issue of digital skills is key: the Observatory in fact, it monitors the implementation of the Plan and the National Strategy for digital skills.

The monitoring activity is then extended to the implementation of the Three-Year Plan and the use of the resources available for the Digital Agenda within the PNRR and the European Union framework programs.- Innovation:

In order to understand the digital innovations that could characterize the Italian PA in the near future and produce strategic indications on how to seize the most disruptive digital innovation opportunities, the Research will investigate the characteristics of the ecosystem of startups that work with the PA, of the application solutions of blockchain and Artificial Intelligence in the public sphere.

The applications and use of drones by public administrations will also be surveyed and smart working initiatives will be monitored, with particular attention to the adoption of the Agile Work Organizational Plan (POLA).- Switch-off:

The switch-off trend is aimed at understanding the mechanisms that characterize the digitalization of services, their automation and simplification. The development of a model for the classification of digital transformation interventions is envisaged, which takes into account the choices of centralization or decentralization of digitization initiatives and which assesses the role of private actors and their dynamics of involvement.

Added to this work is an international analysis on proactive services aimed at exploring the possibilities of eliminating obligations and an exploratory analysis of existing urban data platform applications, with a focus on cities.- Procurement:
