  1. Exploring the impact of commercial wearable activity trackers on body awareness and body representations: A mixed-methods study on self-tracking 

    Boldi, Arianna; Silacci, Alessandro; Boldi, Marc-Olivier; et al. (2024)
    Computers in Human Behavior
    Wearable trackers are believed to enhance users' self-knowledge, but their impact on the relationship that people have with their own bodies is relatively unexplored.

  3. Wearable Activity Trackers: A Survey on Utility, Privacy, and Security 

    Niksirat, Kavous Salehzadeh; Velykoivanenko, Lev; Zufferey, Noé; et al. (2024)
    ACM Computing Surveys
    Over the past decade, wearable activity trackers (WATs) have become increasingly popular. However, despite many research studies in different fields (such as psychology, health, and design), few have sought to jointly examine the critical aspects of utility (i.e., benefits brought by these devices), privacy, and security (i.e., risks and vulnerabilities associated with them). To fill this gap, we reviewed 236 studies that researched the ...
