  • The reason I've been able to sustain tracking my location is because this setup requires very little effort to maintain. The data is automatically collected and uploaded without any interaction from me.
  • The reason I was able to sustain this project so long was because of the simplicity of the data collection interface, a simple SMS.
  • The reason I've been able to sustain this setup is because the effort required to tap the button at night and in the morning is very low since the band is already on my wrist.
  • I've been able to sustain this data collection because it is almost no different from using a regular scale.
