|Keywords:||Activity tracking;Behavior change;Crowdsourcing;Persuasive technologies;Self-quantification||Category:||Computer and Information Sciences||Field:||Natural Sciences||Issue Date:||Sep-2015||Publisher:||Association for Computing Machinery, Inc||Source:||ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing, 2015, 07 - 11 September, Osaka, Japan||Conference:||ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing||Abstract:||Despite the initial premise of activity trackers, recent work has questioned their long-term efficacy in supporting behavior change. This paper makes two contributions. First, we present a study that inquired into individuals' ways of incorporating physical activity into their daily routines - and specifically, the "why, how, when and where" of physical activity. Secondly, we present CrowdWalk, a mobile app that leverages the wisdom of the crowd to produce location-based "walking challenges", and thus attempts to assist behavior change through highlighting opportunities for physical activity.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/13285||DOI:||10.1145/2800835.2800923||Rights:||Copyright is held by the owner/author(s)||Type:||Conference Papers|
