Synopsis

So, you want to buy a fitness or activity tracker, do you? Why not – it's the hottest new thing in fitness and health! Digital health, that is.

Well, there are a few things you should consider.

What, exactly, do these devices do, and how does that apparently help you?

How will your personal health information be collected and stored? Will it be safe? Will it be passed on or sold to third parties? Can it be used against you in a court of law or insurance claim?

Whether you will be buying one just for fun; to help you achieve fitness, weight loss or training goals; buying one as a gadget junkie; or buying one as a digital health enthusiast; DIGITAL FIT STEPS: An Examination of Activity Trackers will tell you what you need to know.

This eBook will describe the features, benefits and applications of fitness or activity trackers – what they do for you – and whether or not their use has been shown to help increase adherence to an exercise program. Their economic impact will also be explored. Finally, the concepts of their safety, privacy, data security, accuracy, and abandonment will be examined.

Complete with up-to-date research results and insight from academic and industry leaders, DIGITAL FIT STEPS: An Examination of Activity Trackers will help you make an informed decision regarding the purchase of a fitness or activity tracker – before you hit the stores!
