This paper seeks to study different aspects of self-tracking and some of the technologies behind it. A selection of technologies in wearable self-tracking units are explained, including how they work compared to traditional ways of monitoring, for example heart rate. The connection between humans and wearable self-tracking technologies is analysed using actor network-theory and Bruno Latour’s concept of purification and hybridization. In addition,
how an user most effectively uses these technologies is analysed and discussed based of personal experiments with self-tracking.These experiments…
