Apple Watch nips at Fitbit's heels in wearables race

Apple Watch nips at Fitbit's heels in wearables race | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

No, the Apple Watch hasn't completely dominated the wearables market just yet -- but it's getting there.

In market researcher IDC's latest quarterly report on wearables, Apple's smartwatch -- which launched in April -- debuted at the No. 2 spot, just behind category leader Fitbit. Overall, Fitbit shipped 4.4 million wearables during the second quarter, while Apple shipped 3.6 million, accounting for nearly 20 percent of the market, IDC said Thursday.

"Apple will become the stick against which other wearables are measured, and competing vendors need to stay current or ahead of Apple," IDC analyst Ramon Llamas said in a statement. "Everyone will be watching to see what other wearable devices it decides to launch."

New Heart Rate Trackers: Is Knowing Your Pulse Useful?

New Heart Rate Trackers: Is Knowing Your Pulse Useful? | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Several new fitness trackers, along with heart rate monitors, allow users to constantly measure their heart rate throughout the day. For the average person, this information may be interesting, but it remains to be seen whether it can help make you healthier, experts say.

Heart rate monitors geared toward athletes have been available for years, but recently, fitness trackers aimed at the general public have started to include heart rate as a measure to track along with steps taken, calories burned, distanced walked and sleep.

For example, the Withings Pulse includes a sensor that lets you check your heart rate using your finger, and the Basis B1 has heart rate monitor built into the wristband itself, allowing you to know your rate at any time. (The Basis also graphs this information, so users can see how their heart rate changed during the day or night.)

Knowing your heart rate can be useful when you exercise, because it will help you know whether your exercise is intense enough to provide health benefits, but not so intense that it could cause health problems, said Dr. James Borchers, a sports medicine physician at Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. This sweet spot is known as the "target zone," which is about 60 to 80 percent of your maximum heart rate, according to the Cleveland Clinic. [The Best Heart Rate Monitor Watches for Exercise]

The Quantified Self: How Data-Obsessed Trackers Push Toward Healthier Lives

The Quantified Self: How Data-Obsessed Trackers Push Toward Healthier Lives | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Like many of us, David Jay sets goals for himself every New Year's. But to track his progress, he goes a step further than many: He spends time each week entering detailed information about his life into a spreadsheet.

Jay tracks the big and the small: from how often he meditates, calls his parents and works out, to how many new friends he's making, what books he's reading and the contributions he's making to his work and community. This New York resident is also working on a side project to develop an app that could track his emotions, in part to see how his feelings correlate with physiological measures, such as his heart rate, skin conductance and other aspects of his life.

"It makes me feel like I have an understanding of what the important things in my life are, and how they're doing in a way that I normally don't have access to," Jay said of his tracking. "It's also good to realize when there are patterns, when there are really important things in my life that I'm not prioritizing," he said.

Jay is a member of the quantified self movement, a group of people who strive for better self-understanding by collecting data about themselves, with no detail too small. They are often aided by an ever-growing list of gadgets, including fitness trackers, heart rate monitors, self-tracking apps and even trackers of trackers.

Does mobile health technology help the heart?

Does mobile health technology help the heart? | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
Wearable health trackers and Smartphone apps have taken the world by storm in recent years. Around 20% of Smartphone users have one or more health apps on their device, and a 2014 report by Nielsen found 1 in 6 of us use wearable technology - such as fitness trackers - on a daily basis.

According to the authors of the American Heart Association (AHA) statement - including Lora E. Burke of the University of Pittsburgh, PA - the most popular self-monitoring devices and apps are those that track physical activity or heart rate. But do such technologies have a direct impact on heart health?

For their study, Burke and colleagues reviewed a number of meta-analyses and randomized clinical trials of mobile health technologies that had been conducted over the past 10 years.

They investigated how such technologies influenced improvement in risk factors for heart health, as determined by the AHA's Life's Simple 7: eating healthily, increasing physical activity, weight management, avoidance of tobacco smoke, reducing blood sugar, cholesterol control and blood pressure control.

4 Of The Best Heart Health Apps

4 Of The Best Heart Health Apps | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Heart disease remains the leading cause of death in the U.S. As people age, their hearts undergo changes that make them particularly vulnerable to cardiovascular disease, according to the National Institute on Aging. With advancements in mobile technology, there are now smartphone applications that enable seniors to monitor their heart health on a regular basis. 

As the heart ages, its blood vessels become stiffer and the heart wall gets thicker in order to more efficiently support the flow of blood throughout the body. The NIA noted that the stiffness also spreads to the valves, which may make it difficult for the vessels to pump blood out of the heart and might even result in leaks. These age-related factors, along with well-known causes like an unhealthy diet, increase seniors' risks of developing heart disease.

It's more important than ever for adults to keep an eye on their heart health as they enter into old age. They should consider using one of these four mobile apps to complement their other daily efforts for preventing heart disease.

The Potential of Wearable Technology

The Potential of Wearable Technology | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Wearable technology already has a huge variety of applications for both business clients and retail consumers. However, it is important to remember that the key to wearables taking off is that customers must show a willingness to keep wearing them so that they become an integral part of their daily lives. There’s no point in businesses developing apps for wearable technology that nobody uses.

At the 2014 Wearables Europe Event in London, the expert panellists were unequivocal about the need of aesthetics and the importance of designing wearables that look good. Even before people know and understand the function of a wearable device, they should want it and desire it.
