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.
