Germans are tracking grouches – com! professional

According to a survey by Digitec Galaxus, around 60 percent of Germans do not use their smart devices to count steps, measure their heart rate or monitor their sleep.

As part of a representative GfK study, Digitec Galaxus asked around 2,500 people from the DACH region whether they measured their physical activity. More than half of the people surveyed in Switzerland (52.2 percent) and Austria (52.7 percent) track their physical activity.

In Germany, people have the least desire to collect data, here only 40.8 percent of the study participants count steps, calories, etc. 59.2 percent don’t do it – 38.7 percent of them also state that they don’t want to start with it either.

In terms of age distribution, Switzerland and Austria show parallels: the older the person surveyed, the more likely they are to track. In Germany the situation is very different, the younger the respondents, the more likely they are to collect data about their physical activities.

According to the study, the number of steps is the most important value in self-tracking. Pulse follows in second place in Austria and Germany – the Swiss prefer to analyze their sleep patterns.

The Swiss and Austrians prefer to use their smartphones to record data, while the Germans primarily use their smartwatches.
