The Extended Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT2) Model was adopted to carry out this study. A survey (n=317) was conducted with college-aged smartphone users at a Anna University, SRM University, VIT and various other colleges. Performance expectancy, hedonic motivations, price value, and habit were significant predictors of users' intention of continued usage of health and fitness apps. However, effort expectancy, social influence, and facilitating conditions were not found to predict users' intention of continued usage of health and fitness apps.

Future Plans

This study extends the UTATU2 Model to the mobile apps domain and provides health professions, app designers, and marketers with the insights of user experience in terms of continuously using health and fitness apps.
