Wearable Technology Software


In addition to health and fitness-conscious consumers pursuing the "quantified self" vision, wearable devices are also increasingly marketed to people with health conditions, to caregivers monitoring the elderly and ill, and to doctors, hospitals and medical professionals

Turning Science Fiction Into Fact

While health and fitness are often the first things that come to mind when we hear about “wearable technology”, these are by no means the only domains. In the business world, HR departments and managers seeking to improve employee safety, wellness and organizational efficiency are increasingly turning to wearables. Not surprisingly, industry analysts expect the worldwide revenue from wearable electronic devices, apps, and services for fitness and personal health to grow by 200% in the next couple of years.

Your effort is the #1 reason that this project is going so well. I've worked with a lot of teams over the years and there are very few teams that I trust and respect. When you are given a task or feature, I never have to worry whether or not it will be accomplished on time and I never worry about the quality - you always deliver.

The team we put together in the last half of this year is one of the most productive, skilled and enjoyable I’ve ever worked on. It’s great to see the product brought to life, and I’m proud to work with all you folks.

The First Line Software team is professional, results driven, and proactive. I know that when we provide requirements for new functionality, they will not only deliver on the scope of what has been asked but will look beyond and give insight into how we can make our product even better. It has been a privilege to work with First Line Software, and I look forward to continuing our partnership in future.
