BP: anthropometrics

The object that I chose that is the Fitbit. I feel that this designed object is successful with its design for the interaction with human movement. It is successful because it is literally designed to track human movement and activity such as sleep tracking and steps taken each day. Fitbit’s are a very popular trend in the consumer world right now because so many people like how their activity can be monitored and displayed to them on a small wrist accessory. The design of the Fitbit is simple and it directly  focuses on human movement which is what anthropometrics is all about. The Fitbit would not be successful if it didn’t work well with human movement and activity, but because so many people find this object beneficial the company is successful. Designers also have to study health factors, human movement, and human activity to create a successful product that consumers will enjoy. And I believe that the Fitbit has achieved this.
