Experiencer is a scientific software installed on the smartwatch to send you notifications as reminders for self-reporting and collects physiological data in the background following GDPR and the ethical board of TU/e regulations.
While wearing the smartwatch you will receive notifications several times a day to self-report, either tap on the notification “Open app” button or navigate to “Experiencer” (by pressing the smaller button on the side of the smartwatch to open up the app menu, then swiping left). When the app is opened, press on self-report and follow the instructions.
Your smartwatch by default is in vibrating mode. Please do not set it to silent. We want you to feel the notification vibration. If you want you can add a sound to it by swiping down from the top and switching the sound profile of your device.
One of the aims of this study is to analyze whether your environment and momentary emotions influence your achievement of your New Year’s resolutions. After the study, you can request insight into how you are affected by your context on the achievements of your health-related goals.
You are encouraged to self-report on five context-related questions based on that specific moment in time as soon as you receive a notification. But you are not bound to that. Feel free to self-report any other time if you feel like it.
If Experiencer closed during self-reporting, just re-open the app and you should be able to continue where you left off.
You might notice that sometimes Experiencer itself (not the notification) pops up for a short while and closes again, that is an expected behavior. Simply ignore that. Your only signal to self-report is the notification.
The watches cannot connect to TU/e Wi-Fi due to the security policies of TU/e regarding external devices.
You may connect the smartwatch to the Wi-Fi hotspot of your smartphone or your home router.
If your Wi-Fi is not found on the smartwatch, make sure your Wi-Fi is on a 2.4 GHz band.
The functionalities of the smartwatch are restricted. For example, there is no Samsung Health app on the device, the step counter is disabled (that’s why it is stuck at ~3k), and you cannot connect the smartwatch to your smartphone. That is both for your own privacy and also to ensure that you are not distracted by the secondary functionalities of the smartwatch.
Wear the watch during the day and charge it overnight.
