Digitalization is a phenomenon that seems to affect all aspects of contemporary society. The sports domain is by no means excluded from this development. In sports, the sport watch might be one of the most iconic symbols in how digitalization has enhanced, changed and developed how physical activities are experienced and measured. Despite the massive adoption of sport watches among runners and other athletes, few studies have explored how sports watches are used in the specific activity they are designed for. The study presented in this research in progress paper is small and should be viewed as a small attempt to outline an approach to study digital technology use in sports activities.
