CES 2013: LG Smart Activity Tracker Wristband Takes Aim at Nike+ FuelBand | Quantified Self | Scoop.it

The LG Smart Activity Tracker actually looks a lot like the Nike+ FuelBand, and has many of the same features. It has an accelerometer and altimeter to measure activity. It will know whether you’re walking, running, or sitting, and its data can synced to an app on Android smartphones. It will also work with LG Smart TVs to sync up with on-screen exercise programs. LG also plans on adding a heart-rate monitor, which would be a pretty cool addition. Also, it has a touchscreen.

Khaled Alkaabi's curator insight, March 20, 2013 8:51 AM

In the old days where patients are attached to big and bulky machines which are used to monitor their health. It also relies heavily on manual processes such as regularly visiting the patients or someone nearby to keep an eye on them. With the modern technology, doctors can see how their patients are going and receive notifications when something happens via their phones. This way, they can also keep up-to-date with their patients' status.

Gamification: professional design is the key for success | Quantified Self | Scoop.it

"Brushed your teeth this morning? Congratulations, you get 20 points. Hit your quarterly performance target early? Good work, you get half a day's extra holiday..."

 

BBC journalist Nic Fleming investigates the hype of Gamification, a 2011 buzzword and future trend that does not araise exactly like Gartner predicted.

A lot of companies or agencies are trying to make gamification, but because of poor Gamedesig, Gartner predicts that by 2014, 80% of the gamification applications will fall to deliver.

Apple patents smart shoes

Apple patents smart shoes | Quantified Self | Scoop.it

A newly granted Apple patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on last Tuesday describes a system through which your clothing could talk to your iPhone to help it create tailored workouts that know you better than you know yourself.

 

While many companies are looking at wearable computing in the form of smart watches or glasses-based heads-up interfaces (Apple included), there seems to be a background current at Apple devoted to more subtle and invisible incarnations of on-body tech. As with any patents, there’s no guarantee we’ll ever see these inventions ship, but wearable computing is bound to be a growing concern for any major consumer electronics maker in the next few years.

Survey : already 21% percent of US adults use technology to track health data | Quantified Self | Scoop.it

Seven in ten (69%) U.S. adults track a health indicator for themselves or a loved one and many say this activity has changed their overall approach to health, according to a new survey by the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project.

In all:

- 60% of U.S. adults say they track their weight, diet, or exercise routine.

- 33% of U.S. adults track health indicators or symptoms, like blood pressure, blood sugar, headaches, or sleep patterns.

- 12% of U.S. adults track health indicators or symptoms for a loved one.

 

However, their tracking is often informal:

- 49% of trackers say they keep track of progress “in their heads.”

- 34% say they track the data on paper, like in a notebook or journal.

- 21% say they use some form of technology to track their health data, such as a spreadsheet, website, app, or device.
