Abstract: A large percentage of older people do not achieve the recommended levels of health related activities. The planned CARIMO system addresses this problem and offers services and applications which motivate older users to do exercises and thus, improve their health. As additional incentive, an activity tracker is planned to be integrated in the CARIMO system. The paper describes the three-step process we defined to select a suitable device. First, available activity trackers were analysed according to a predefined criteria catalogue. Best ranked trackers were evaluated with a respect to usability and technical requirements. The Samsung Gear Fit2 offered a high range of functionality and was best ranked according to the usability evaluation. So, we finally decided to integrate the Samsung Gear Fit2 in the CARIMO system.
