Learn more about your physical activity behaviour by taking part in our research

We're looking for people who are interested in doing more physical activity to help us evaluate personalised feedback from wearable monitoring technology.

This study is looking to investigate how personalised visual physical activity feedback might be used to support people who currently do not do much physical activity in understanding and changing their behaviour. Wearable devices are very popular amongst highly motivated, regular exercisers but little is known about their benefit for people who do not do regular sport and exercise.


We are looking to get the views of males and females who do not believe themselves to currently be very active. To be eligible for the study you must:

  • be aged between 18 and 65 years old
  • not regularly engage in sport, exercise or physical activity
  • have no known mental or physical disability that impedes your ability to do physical activities

This research will end on 28 June 2019.

What you'll get

If you take part in this research, you will get to use high-tech physical activity monitoring technology and receive detailed personalised feedback over a three-week period. You will also help answer questions about the benefits of these monitors.

What's involved

You will need to complete a short online questionnaire and then come for a very brief five minute assessment at the University of Bath where we will measure your height and weight, and provide you with a monitor to take away.

You will be asked to wear the monitor for three consecutive weeks. At the end of each week you will be provided with personalised feedback and asked to complete another short online questionnaire.

All information and data provided will remain strictly confidential and all reports will be anonymised. Data will be stored in full compliance with GDPR Law.*
