Abstract

This paper presents an open discussion about current achievements and remaining challenges in the general adoption of wearable monitoring devices among the general population. To understand the open issues we present some background of Internet of Things (IoT) systems for pervasive wellbeing monitoring, including a brief taxonomy of wearable monitoring devices and possible application domains. We also classify and explain key possible influencing factors related to use, adherence and attrition in wearable monitoring solutions. Finally, we have conducted a survey where we analyzed the user perspective of long term wearable device usage. We asked about 16 issues, organized in three categories: the practical daily use, data and measurement procedures, and user experience with the device and supporting software. Preliminary findings indicate that most of the issues are perceived as highly relevant or relevant for the users and that roughly half of them have already personally experienced these problems. Based in the findings of the survey we provide some insights about possible solutions.
