Conflict of Interest

The authors have disclosed that Dr. NM owns stock in Microsoft and receives royalties from licensing a software program. Dr. JY and Dr. WHT serve as consultants for various device and biopharmaceutical companies, and both have received several NIH grants. None of these pose potential conflicts of interest for this study (Microsoft has since discontinued its wearable device product). All remaining authors declare that they do not have a conflict of interest.
