  • Publication number: 20180256078
    Abstract: Devices, systems, and methods can be used to suggest a discovery to an individual related to their health and wellness, including receiving data about the individual from a user interface regarding a goal for the individual, querying the individual regarding their perception of the goal, determining, a likely state of the individual (e.g., readiness to change), and selecting a subset of discoveries to display to the individual from a database that correspond to both the goal for the individual and the likely state of the individual. Displaying information may include receiving motion data including duration of motion, classifying a type of activity the individual is engaged in based on the motion data and likely intensity of the activity, and displaying a graphical user interface including a color spectrum, depending on one of the type of activity, intensity of the activity, or duration of the activity.
