SmartTriggers – guidelines for effective QS applications
SmartTriggers is a concept that provides guidelines to humanize goal-driven Quantified Self applications. The concept illustrates how triggers —designed for people— can better support behavior change.
The Quantified Self movement promises self-knowledge trough numbers –an appealing premise for individuals who seek to modify their behavior. Thought this type of movement has been around for decades, only recently QS consumer devices started gaining mainstream popularity. Unfortunately most of them focus on technical capacities but there is still a large gap for these devices to help people achieve what they need with them.
The goal with SmartTriggers is to help advance self-tracking devices by making them better suited for people in their always changing circumstances.
