Does Your Data Make You Sweat?

What can brown data do for you? In my previous post, I talked about the impact that our data creation has on our lives. Data is currently used for saving lives, preserving history, space travel, motivation, nutrition, and countless other ways that positively benefit race. According to a 2012 study/infographic, Every minute we are sending 100,000 tweets and are spending over $272,000 on web shopping. With all of this data and activity we are adding to/from our daily lives, why not use some of it for your own everyday health and wellness?

2014 may very well be the year of the “smart watches” and activity trackers, and companies like Nike, Jawbone, Fitbit, and Samsung, are all-in, with Apple rumored to be joining the fun soon.

Activity trackers such as the Nike Fuelband, Jawbone Up, and Fitbit Force (my personal favorite) allow you to learn, track, compare, and even set goals for your personal fitness. You can track sleeping patterns, food intake, steps taken, distance,  and even compete against your friends and family for added motivation. By simply wearing a wristband, your personalized health and wellness “data” is being constantly tracked and converted to provide you insight into your personal well-being.

How close are you to 10,000 steps today? With these technologies, you’ll know at all times.

My data helps me sweat, helps me sleep, helps me eat healthier,  and motivates me to keep moving. What does your data do for you?

“The ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

RIP Steve. You’re truly missed by the world. Clearly you were the one steering the ship, which since has gone a bit off course.

Straight into a Samsung Iceberg.
