The Acceptance of Smart Wearable Devices through Health Cognitive
Department of Health Care Administration, Oriental Institute of Technology, New Taipei City, Taiwan
Many people have become “health consumers” and “health conscious” by seeking products to more effectively manage health-related lifestyle aspects such as fitness activities, healthcare, sports, and rehabilitation. The results revealed that perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, and health cognitive had a significant impact on attitude to use. To increase individuals’ intention to use smart wearable devices, it is critical to encourage a positive attitude toward using the devices to acquire health knowledge. Emphasizing devising effective means to communicate the health utility of the devices to customers should be the highest priority for industry producers.
