The aim of our case study is to analyze the perceived impact of smartbands on adopting an active and healthy lifestyle by students at the level of university education. Integrating recent contributions from education sciences, knowledge management and applied health informatics, the paper highlights the premises of an institutional educational program that aims to improve students' health (with a special focus on weight loss). Starting from the arguments for using smarbands in health education programs and the current research being made in this field, the authors propose several directions of study and solutions that could be integrated at university level in order to improve students' health.
