Abstract

Drawing on self-determination theory, this study examines the user experiences of fitness technology users, categorizing their experiences based on satisfied and frustrated Basic Psychological Needs (BPNs). We observe that fitness technology users often exhibit both positive and negative orientations toward such technologies, which affect the use continuance of these technologies. The significance of addressing both BPNs satisfaction and frustration becomes obvious in understanding post-adoptive IS use behavior. Our systematic literature review findings highlight the importance of prioritizing users' informational, affective, and social needs, enabling the creation of user-centric fitness technologies. This research supports a multifaceted approach to IS use patterns, suggesting the alignment of design choices with various user preferences. Keywords: Fitness technology use persistence, Self-determination theory, Basic psychological needs, Post-adoptive information systems use behavior, Systematic literature review.

GOING BEYOND TRACKING: UNDERSTANDING THE FITNESS TECHNOLOGY USE PERSISTENCE

Drawing on self-determination theory, this study examines the user experiences of fitness technology users, categorizing their experiences based on satisfied and frustrated Basic Psychological Needs (BPNs). We observe that fitness technology users often exhibit both positive and negative orientations toward such technologies, which affect the use continuance of these technologies. The significance of addressing both BPNs satisfaction and frustration becomes obvious in understanding post-adoptive IS use behavior. Our systematic literature review findings highlight the importance of prioritizing users' informational, affective, and social needs, enabling the creation of user-centric fitness technologies. This research supports a multifaceted approach to IS use patterns, suggesting the alignment of design choices with various user preferences.
