Announcing We-TRAC – the Wearable Technology Citizen Science Program


by Dr. Reed Ferber, Ph.D. CAT(C)

The Wearable Technology Citizen Science program is a unique opportunity to share your wearable device data with researchers. Our main goal is to use your data, and the data of your fellow citizen scientists, to help improve your health and your community.  If you track your running mileage and program using a Fitbit or Garmin device, you can become a Citizen Scientist by visiting and signing up.

This Citizen Science program is part of the Wearable Technology Research and Collaboration (We-TRAC) program, which is funded through the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). This program has been approved by the Ethics Board of the University of Calgary (REB20-0572) and involves a world-class group of researchers and industry partners.
