Abstract

Biofeedback has been consistently used to manage stress and anxiety in clinical and non-clinical settings. Existing research on the use of biosignals to provide sensory feedback has been mostly limited to laboratory settings. In this study, we performed an autoethnographic study to analyze the heart rate variability (HRV) data recorded by two wearable biosignal monitors, the polar H10 heart rate monitor chest strap and Empatica E4 wristband. Data acquisition was conducted during the daily activities of two researchers in real-life settings. Data recorded during the activities and the effects of movement artifacts of each subject were compared qualitatively against each other for HRV stress management.
