PSFK Labs looks at how new technology is working to better understand and adapt to our habits.

According to the Pew Research Center’s Tracking For Health report published in January, seven out of ten U.S. adults say they track their weight, diet, or exercise routine for themselves or a loved one. Additionally, 46% of trackers say that this activity has changed their overall approach to maintaining their health or the health of someone for whom they provide care.

Better data, better habits, and possibly better health, all part of a trend from our Future of Home Living report we’re calling Quantified Living. A wide range of everyday products found in the home are now embedded with sensor technologies to passively capture and track the health and behavioral data of ourselves, our families and even our homes. From Wi-Fi enabled scales and plug and play blood pressure monitors to fitness trackers and even connected home resource managers, these products create unprecedented access to a wealth of information, helping us make smarter decisions about our daily lives.
