The term "wearable technology" is usually paired with the idea of the quantified self- a concept in which individuals are interested in recording their activities, sleep, and other biometric data. These individuals use wearable technology such as FitBits to measure, record, and organize this data. The quantified self is also closely tied to the patient self-advocacy movement, in which individuals want to be active partners with their healthcare providers in their health and well-being plans.
