By Brian Kiessling, M.S. and Carol Kennedy-Armbruster, Ph.D., FACSM
The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) annual fitness trends named wearable technology as the top trend for 2016 (19). The popularity of wearable activity trackers (AT’s) is on the rise. Many worksite wellness programs utilize AT’s as incentives to help clients move more and sit less. This article will enhance the readers understanding of how wearable AT’s may influence human movement patterns and physical activity (PA) programming. Published research has focused on wearable AT accuracy. This article focuses on the behavioral aspects of AT’s and presents a programming case study on how to integrate AT’s into a useable program for clients.
