Kenkodo Metabolism based Body Tracker
One of the presentations was by Josephine Worseck about the Kenkodo Metabolism tracker.

The Kenkodo tracker is a personal metabolism tracker. Based on regular blood analysis and activity it aims to give you personal insights in what does and what doesn’t work for you.

This is also the most fundamental issue surrounding Quantified Self. Through all these trackers we are able to measure and gather an enormous amount of data. It’s really hard to turn this data into information.

I’ve been a Fitbit user for years. The device is great in telling me how many steps I’ve taken. It doesn’t tell me when to relax. At the end of a day I can be tired without having walked much. Other days I have been way over the 10.000 steps and still go for an evening run.

It’s just not as simple a taking one stream of data and acting upon it. Our internal sensors are still quite hard to beat. And for now this seems the biggest challenge surrounding the self tracking movement.

How to get from data collecting to valuable personal coaching.
