Motivational Dynamics of Wearable Activity Monitors
By Elizabeth J. Lyons, Ph.D., MPH and Maria C. Swartz, Ph.D., MPH, RD
Choosing the right wearable activity monitor and evaluating the apps that go with it can be challenging. We recommend that practitioners use behavior change techniques and characteristics of gamification to determine appropriate monitor systems and how to implement them. We also recommend that practitioners pay careful attention to the match between personal preferences and characteristics of the monitor as well as the app portions of the system.
