Samenvatting

Nowadays it is possible to monitor behavior or physiological features with specially-made devices that make self-monitoring an accessible and simple activity. Unknown is the effect these wearable devices may have on people's lives and this also applies to the area of sleep monitoring devices. The aim of this preliminary study is to address the extent to which sleep monitoring devices affect people on a cognitive and behavioral level. Four participants aged from 34 to 60, filled out a sleep diary for three consecutive weeks and wore in the latter two weeks a sleep monitoring device. Adjustments on a cognitive and behavioral level were observed, but this was probably due to participating in this study and completing the sleep diary as was indicated by the participants. Since the market for self-monitoring devices is rapidly developing and more accessible for lay people, it is important to investigate the reactive outcomes of these devices as they may have consequences for people who have a high adherence to self-control. Moreover, the knowledge about self-monitoring will improve which will lead to better interventions carried out by, for example, sleep coaches.
