Source: Year in Review: 10 Noteworthy Health & Fitness Apps of 2012, EveryMove, December 7, 2012.
2017 wasn’t kind to Fitbit. Here’s the case for an unlikely partnership that could help it make a dent in the smartwatch market.
While none of these companies have completely halted their digital fitness efforts, there's certainly an overall theme of scaling back, especially when it comes to hardware. In fact, assuming Adidas is getting out of hardware, that means that pretty much all of the major sports apparel companies have given up on the wearables space. They join a long list of other companies (Intel, Jawbone, and Microsoft to name a few) that ultimately couldn't cut it in fitness wearables.
New results published this week in the Journal of the American Medical Association say that wearable monitor devices do not help people lose weight. Rather the opposite: People who wore trackers for 18 months of attempted weight loss actually lost less weight than people who went untracked.
Tracking steps and inputting calories into your smart phone drown out the conversation we should be having with our bodies.
It’s a shame because the people who could most benefit from this technology—the old, the chronically ill, the poor—are being ignored. Indeed, companies seem more interested in helping the affluent and tech-savvy sculpt their abs and run 5Ks than navigating the labyrinthine world of the FDA, HIPAA, and the other alphabet soup bureaucracies.
