The advancement of technologies such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and the availability of low cost sensors has allowed the Internet-of-Things (IoT) industry to develop rapidly. The Android application described in this paper takes advantage of the opportunities provided by these technologies. This application can simultaneously collect data from all sensors available on the Microsoft Band 2. It then stores this data to be later viewed and analyzed. This method of data collection could help in many cases, including psychiatric disorders. For example, our app is aimed at monitoring physiological data (heart rate and galvanic skin response) and ambient environment data (sound and lighting conditions) of trauma exposed individuals with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The preliminary data collection study on healthy individuals demonstrate that our framework efficiently handles the continuous recording of multiple sensors.
