Health and wearables?

 The wearable market is exploding and people have begun tracking their behavior in several ways. The Swiss watch industry is being overtaken by the American and Asia tech-companies: Apple, FitBit, Huawei, Samsung and LG – they are all fighting to get a piece of the wearable-watch-pie.

If you have been to Baselworld, or CES in Las Vegas you stumbled over the wearables that track your health, the location of your jewelry or your lover whereabouts if necessary. So, If we know one thing for sure – it’s wearables will be everywhere shortly.

But maybe more interesting is the relation between wearables and health. I couldn’t find a single watch – apart from the Philips watch that is not available in all markets – that is accurate enough to be used in a medical context. And there is no scientific proof that wearables help us life healthier, happier or longer… If you are aware of those articles please share them with me.

In the meanwhile I have been testing some watches. For the results check the link (in dutch).
