It seems that everyone has at least one device they wear regularly that tracks some aspect of health-related behavior. It could be an Apple Watch tracking how often they take deep breaths and move, an Oura ring tracking sleep, a Whoop band assessing exercise intensity and “strain” or a Fitbit tracking steps. We have become quite the human data repositories. But other than providing the companies collecting this data with valuable insights into our habits, what else can be gained from all of this?
Some don't glean much from their wearables other than the occasional glance to check step count. Others try to understand what it says about their sleep routine, dietary habits, or fitness regimen—then, after a couple weeks, they stop checking, unsure what to do with that information.
Yet, many people keep wearing the device, or just leave it on the charger indefinitely. If any of that hits close to home, then let me help you out.
