Use of data

The Moodmetric smart ring measures in the same way continuously, around the clock. The data can be followed in real time on a smartphone screen. The ring also stores the data, so the phone does not need to be near the user at all times. The user downloads the measurement data from the ring to the app twice a day.

The data is available in different formats, also as raw data. It is to be noted that the Moodmetric smart ring is developed for field research; collecting and analyzing raw data requires the researcher to have experience of measuring electrodermal activity in laboratory conditions. A research setting where the minute average value of the Moodmetric level is used does not require prior knowledge of laboratory measurements of the electrodermal activity.

1. From the cloud service in CSV or Excel format

  • Recommended way to collect data in field research.
  • One sample per minute is stored in the Moodmetric cloud.
  • The data is first stored in the ring memory and transferred via bluetooth to the app about twice a day.
  • If the Moodmetric cloud connection is enabled, the data is uploaded to the cloud automatically every couple of hours.

The CSV report gives among others parameters SCR/min and SCL. Read more below from the downloadable guides.

2. Moodmetric API (application programming interface)

  • Available upon request.
  • Moodmetric API enables viewing of the data in the Moodmetric cloud through an external platform.

3. Moodmetric SDK (Software Developer Kit)

  • Makes Moodmetric real-time data available for mobile applications
  • The SDK is available for download for free here >>

Storing of raw data

There are two tools to record and store raw data. The other is streaming to a Windows PC with a dongle, the other is a mobile phone app.

PC Scope

PC Scope enables recording the Moodmetric measurement data on a PC. The setting requires the measured persons to be close to the PC. It is also adviced to minimize signal noise of the surroundings.

Benefits of PC Scope:

  • Data is immediately available at a PC
  • Incoming data is simple to modify already during the measurement
  • Possibility to add markers, time stamps or data from other devices to the same file

Mobile Scope

Mobile Scope enables storing of raw data in many kinds of surroundings.

Benefits of Mobile Scope:

  • Mobile
  • Reliable connection also when the environment is not completely noise free
  • More data points recorded, than with PC Scope

PC Scope and Mobile Scope work best in short measurements from 1 to 60 minutes.

PC and Mobile Scope area available with the same licence. The licence includes access to download files of PC Scope and an Apk file that allows to download Mobile Scope to an Android smartphone.

725€ / 10 pcs of Mobile Scope downloads. Single licence: 95€ (prices are exclusive of VAT)

To note before beginning Moodmetric measurements

Before starting on any measurements, management of any personal data needs to adhere to EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Please refer to our Data Privacy Policy for information about the use of data stored in the Moodmetric cloud.
