With increasing competition and the contemporary multitude of health and wellbeing applications, technology has been continuously challenged to innovate and adapt to increasing usage and complexity. In a growing Internet of Things environment, wearables are everyday use communicating devices able to measure and generate valuable data that can provide insights about a person's physical condition and habits. Ranging from health-related indicators such as blood pressure and heart rate, to more fitness-related values such as steps and calories, these devices are able to collect a considerable amount of data that needs to be filtered, processed and presented to the user with helpful conclusions. This data can be interpreted with a special concern about work-life balance, and to generate community engagement, either in a work or social setting, enabling more user participation and providing dynamic indicators. Citizen Hub is a mobile solution to integrate data from wearables and medical devices, providing features that allow monitoring and managing habits that can greatly impact health and wellbeing. In this paper, insights about work-life balance are explored using Citizen Hub in two different settings, MyWork and MyTime, with the objective of delivering a dynamic and adaptative technological solution for community engagement in a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
