Routine Tracking

Seeking to battle everyday forgetfulness, consumers turn to high-tech trackers

Implications - While jotting down notes and repeating phrases helps improve cognitive functions, forgetting tasks and leaving behind belongings continues to be a common occurrence, particularly in old age. Seeking to combat forgetfulness in a contemporary manner, older generations are utilizing apps that help track everyday items like glasses and wallets to make misplacing personal goods less stressful. This reflects a shift away from personal reliance toward more technologically sufficient methods of day-to-day problem solving.
