47 0 0 0 13 how to invest 200k in 2015. James Park, co-founder and chief executive officer of Fitbit Inc. Bloomberg Television interview in San Francisco, California, U.
I’ve been studying the market for some time, and I believe most signs point to wearable health tracking having serious long-term potential. 2014 compared with the first half of 2013. Today, 1 in 5 American’s own some type of wearable technology. I look back on the days I averaged only thirty thousand steps, and think, Honestly, how lazy can you get? When I hit thirty-five thousand steps a day, Fitbit sent me an e-badge, and then one for forty thousand, and forty-five thousand.
Now I’m up to sixty thousand, which is twenty-five and a half miles. Perhaps the most important thing that Fitbit and other wearables have done is bring the importance of physical activity to the forefront. 100 in many cases — that many more people can now afford them. Smartwatches, meanwhile, are on track to become an even more important category, as they include health-monitoring features while adding more versatility to the overall wearables market. However, it will be the health industry that makes wearables go truly mainstream.
