This study explores the effectiveness of a music-assisted IoT exercise system specifically designed for mid-distance running. The primary objectives are to augment the sports experience, facilitate recovery, and surpass the benefits provided by existing solutions. This system ensures a personalized experience through real-time music tempo adaptation according to the heart rate (HR), exercise tracking, customizable music selection, adjustable parameters, and voice recognition technology for effortless completion of questionnaires. In our findings, we observed a significant interaction (p <0.05) in terms of Condition × Exercise Stage for HR, Rating of Perceived Exertion (RPE), Feeling Scale (FS), and Felt Arousal Scale (FAS). It suggests that exercise-oriented music considerably impacts physiological (HR), perceptual (RPE), and affective (FS, FAS) responses. Furthermore, tailored and enjoyable exercise experiences lead to an increase in positive arousal and a decrease in fatigue. The music-assisted IoT exercise system demonstrates potential as an efficacious instrument for promoting physical activity and enhancing health outcomes. Future work will concentrate on further exploring the impact of music on exercise performance and recovery, investigating other musical parameters, integrating sensors for capturing behavioral responses, and enhancing data privacy and security through blockchain technology.
