I use the iPhone app SleepCycle to monitor my sleeping patterns. It has revealed some interesting stuff, and I'm exploring ways to increase the amount of deep sleep I get.

I use "My Fitness Keeper" for the iPhone to track diet and exercise. I definitely made some changes in terms of what I'm eating and when. I also started walking instead of driving to work.

I use my own app, Tonic, to keep track of back pain, notes about what I think could have brought it on, and various exercises/therapies I've tried to reduce or recover from episodes of back pain. I've discovered that standing (long airport check-in lines; conference exhibition days; etc.) are really bad, whereas active exercise (walking, hiking, etc) are not problematic. Also discovered that a couple of simple relaxation exercises are very effective in relieving the pain and getting me back to functional pretty quickly.

I bought a fitbit after reading your review - I love it! I initially tried a pedometer/heart rate watch but returned it because I wanted a tracker that required minimal effort on my part. The fitbit is so easy to use, and I'm much more motivated to work out when my activity level is graphed. my favorite discovery is that cleaning counts as light exercise, so I don't mind doing laundry or vacuuming so much anymore.

Need for better automation of sensor data, and especially for fusion of sensor data from different devices and sources into a comprehensive personal exploitation knowledge base.
