The novel COVID-19 disease has been declared a pandemic event. Early detection of infection symptoms and contact tracing are playing a vital role in containing COVID-19 spread. As demonstrated by recent literature, multi-sensor and connected wearable devices might enable symptom detection and help tracing contacts, while also acquiring useful epidemiological information. This paper presents the design and implementation of a fully open-source wearable platform called H-Watch. It has been designed to include several sensors for COVID-19 early detection, multi-radio for wireless transmission and tracking, a microcontroller for processing data on-board, and finally, an energy harvester to extend the battery lifetime. Experimental results demonstrated only 5.9~mW of average power consumption, leading to a lifetime of 9 days on a small watch battery. Finally, all the hardware and the software, including a machine learning on MCU toolkit, are provided open-source, allowing the research community to build and use the H-Watch. Show more
