Smart wearable technology and devices are the microcomputers which are considered to be the future and replacement for the handheld smart devices. Generally, smart wearable devices are considered to be the devices which connect with the smart phones and serve the purpose but smart wearable technology does more important things like health monitoring than just a smart phone on your wrist. These devices are designed for active health monitoring, including but not limited to heart rate, step count, calories, kilometers bicycled, galvanic skin sensor etc. Users of personal activity trackers can choose and control the length and time of their workout and they don’t have to depend on personal trainers.
Regular physical exercise should be essential part of every human as it provides enormous health benefits. However, most of the people do not consider physical exercise as an important aspect of life due to lack of knowledge or lack of motivation. According to a study health fitness is the real problem in the United States of America and wearable fitness devices are a way to motivate people towards physical exercise as it is a cost effective solution. On the other hand, not all the ideas which sound good should be working during the application. Most of the people who buy the wearable fitness devices or personal activity trackers do not tend to use it or they dump the devices in six months of buying it. Wearable fitness devices are popular gadgets for the young and old but their abandonment rate is fast than adoption rate. But this dumping of devices is not due to dissatisfaction from the brand or the technology but many people sell the devices because they have achieved certain goals or upgraded to the latest model. Some sell it because of uncertain issues in the life and some sell because of the differences between user’s expectations and device configuration.
Also other reasons for people not to fully trust on these devices are that devices require a lot of maintenance, they are not fit for their goals and the data collected by them is not beneficial. But some do find it useful as it helps them to monitor their breathing, heart rate and some are even helpful to set the posture of the body. The high curiosity for this technology is another reason to wear and maintain the device but as soon as the novelty effect goes down, it becomes irritating for people to continue using the device.
