R39: Trackers

Trackers:  How Technology is Helping us Monitor & Improve our Health by Richard MacManus


I really enjoyed this book.  I found the information about Fitbit’s origins really interesting and relevant since I am currently using it.  It is full of technical information but it is written in a really reader friendly manner and quite engaging.  I learnt about some new apps and health startups that are quite fascinating in what they can show us about our genetic makeup and health.  My favourite motto from the book is “measure, monitor, motivate” which a good device or app should do for the purpose we are putting it to.

Definitely keep it and reap it.




I was 46 years old when I begun this blog, female and married with a house full of cats (7). My past is littered with the impact of events that happened when I was a teen. Two loves of my life have been nursing and studying. I just completed my Master of Arts: Media Studies endorsement. My blog will be about the things I think about, that might be better served being written rather than squirreled away in my mind festering. It is the meanderings of my mind as I seek to define myself and my world.
