Watching the Chiefs in Super Bowl? Wear an Apple Watch? We want to hear from you
Whether or not you’re a season ticket holder, we all know that nerve-wracking feeling of following a close game. Kansas Citians everywhere celebrate when the Chiefs make a touchdown.
And, if you were watching last week’s game, you probably felt both extremes in a matter of moments.
This has us wondering: Do Chiefs super fans have the biggest heart rate spikes during games? What about Super Bowl viewers who tune in for the food and good company?
Thanks to you, we’re going to find out.
If you own an Apple Watch and plan on watching the Super Bowl in the Kansas City area, we’d love for you to participate in a little experiment we’re conducting in collaboration with The Philadelphia Inquirer, which covers that other team playing in the Super Bowl this year. We’re trying to figure out whether the most devoted fans see the largest heart rate increase throughout the big game.
By filling out the form below, you can volunteer to share your data with us and learn a lot about just how The Chiefs affect you. We want all kinds of fans, fair-weather or otherwise.
It’s super simple. If we think you’d be a good fit for our analysis, we’ll reach out and walk you through the specifics of measuring your data during Super Bowl Sunday. We’d follow up again on Monday to talk about what you observed while you were watching the game, too.
Does your heart beat a little faster when the Chiefs approach the end zone? Are you nervous when the Eagles have the ball?
It seems like the perfect activity for Super Bowl parties with mixed levels of interest, or an individual experiment for die-hard fans who want to test their devotion to Patrick Mahomes.
Only your heart rate data will be needed, none of your other data will be published or used for our story.
Oh, and one more thing. Our friends in Philadelphia are conducting the same experiment — if you must say “Go Birds,” share your info with The Inky here. So, let’s show Philly what Chiefs fans are made of.
What do you think, Kansas City? Can we count on you?
