Nine Pronged Technology Assessment--New Era of Self-Monitoring Devices

The need for sensor-enabled devices to monitor and track personal lives is fuelled by the growth in health and wellness data. Many companies offering consumer electronic devices are spearheading the trend with innovative designs of developing self-tracking devices. Self-trackers use sensing devices to measure everything they do to improve the day-to-day activities of the individual, which includes fitness, diet, sleep, stress, fertility, and many others. The miniaturization trend and declining price of sensors enable such self-monitoring devices to capture more data about users than before. Constant development to gain deeper insights into human mental and physical conditions is underway. Advances in sensor technology are enabling quantified-self to reach deeper into the day-to-day life activities of the people to capture and reveal varied data. This research service provides technology and markets insights on sensors enabling quantified -self from nine varied technology evaluation metrics.
