Before one argues that the fitness apps cause more

Before one argues that the fitness apps cause more harm than good, they need to have an informed imperative look at the apps from different angles. The four lenses aid with creating different perspectives from where to view the issues at hand. Consequently, one can make informed decisions based on history, arts, culture, as well as scientific studies in relation to the field under discussion (Yuan, Ma, Kanthawala & Peng, 2015). The four lenses help in creating unbiased informed positions as far as the impact of the wellness apps is concerned. Target Group Impact These apps have been impacting the target population since they were first released to the market. Some users only downloaded the app to only never use it. Others use the application for only a few days and later lose interest. There are target users who use the apps and when they cannot see the results they say that the apps never met their expectations. Other users have confided that the applications, however useful, are not customized enough for their demographics. The search for wellness and fitness among all ages globally is not under question. However, people are always trying out new things when their immediate gratification is not met. It is critical to understand that using an application alone will not bring about optimal wellness (Yuan, Ma, Kanthawala & Peng, 2015). Being dedicated toward being healthy, getting assistance from medical professional, as well as using the apps may be the combination toward attaining one’s wellness goals.

TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES AND WELLNESS 7 Plan In the previous milestone, I talked about the issue of wellness apps and devices that help improve the health of users. It is important to note that there has been an enormous increase in the number of these devices (Thompson, 2017). The increase has had issues that have to be planned for to ensure that they are more effective and efficient in their use. Goals The goals that I will be proposing for the plan have to deal with data integrity and privacy, rapid application development and hardware integration (Adapa, Nah, Hall, Siau, & Smith, 2018). These are primary issues to do with fitness apps and devices. Users want mobility as well as business need efficiency. While the wearables market is poised to deliver, the engineering of the apps is very hard. 1. The first goal is to ensure that the integrity and privacy of the data that the users share is guaranteed. If the privacy of the data is compromised, the efficiency and appeal for that application of wearable is compromised too. 2. The other goal is ensuring that there are common standards in hardware integration through the addition of a single line of code. 3. The third goal is ensuring that the developers stop rushing over the development of apps and devices that are released to the market half-baked hence killing the purpose in the end.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
