Abstract

The technology of the Internet of Things (IoT) aims to identify the physical objects around us. The factors that the providers of this technology must take into account to attract users. Convince them of the added value of these objects and to moderate fears related to the confidentiality and security of personal data. However, the current literature still lacks studies specifically for this type of technology. In this article, we study the determinants of the intention to use the internet of things for the sport. The results of the study showed a strong impact of social influence on the perceived utility, perceived control and perceived credibility of the provider as determinants of the intention to use connected things for the sport. Besides, perceived control and perceived utility had an impact on the perceived credibility of the provider. This integrated model provides further explanation of the user's intentional behaviour regarding the use of the Internet of Things for Sport.
