Under Armour’s connected fitness apps now have 140 million users

Under Armour’s connected fitness apps now have 140 million users | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Richard Platt's curator insight, July 28, 2:30 PM

The dashboard Under Armour is building, within UA Record, will focus on four key metrics: sleep, fitness, daily activity, and nutrition.

“We think the consumer needs a dashboard that just says ‘How am I doing?’,” Plank said. “If I can look on my cellphone and I can figure out my bank balance, my stock price, or the weather in any given city — the fact that I have no measure or barometer of my health except for going to see a doctor ever 12, 1,8 or 24 months, we think is really a crime.”  -  Another element to the health dashboard that they are focusing on is defining success for the consumer and providing the user with context.  -  “This isn’t just about knowing that I took 8,000 steps yesterday,” Plank said. “But because I took 8,000 steps, how did it make me feel? And more importantly, how did that work with how I slept or what I ate that day? And we think that having that information is going to allow them to make better decision to live healthier and enriched lives — affecting ultimately, obviously, fitness, but we think there’s an outlook for us to affect global health, which gets us so excited.”

Richard Platt's curator insight, May 31, 10:57 PM

Best description so far on the point that "cognitive action" being helped is what people are really looking for, meaning the reducing of it, albeit not for engineers, who have to do it for what they do in their work which is designing products / technologies to off-load it.

Richard Platt's curator insight, July 23, 11:00 PM

According to Deloitte there are several layers of activity mixed up in conversations about the Internet of Things (see figure). The most visible layer, at the bottom—the connected sensors that dominate the discussion among technologists—involves some complex and important decisions by the organizations implementing it. However, that complexity pales in comparison to the upper layers. It is these upper layers of IoT activity that, if not done well, can cause most IoT initiatives or products to struggle or ultimately fail. The true value lies in what is done with IoT information and, as with most business challenges, execution is everything.

Boardroom To Bedroom: Should Your Boss 'Watch' You While You Sleep?

Boardroom To Bedroom: Should Your Boss 'Watch' You While You Sleep? | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it
Taking A Data-Driven Approach To Sleep Should companies take any interest in how their employees sleep? Sleep is one of the most intimate parts of our lives. Our dreams withhold our deepest fantasies, secrets and fears. As the head of a tech company devoted to health, I was asked to answer [...]
Olivier Janin's insight:

This is the third contribution of Cedric Hutchings - French Withings CEO - to Forbes in a couple of months. 

3 interesting notes about this paper : 

  • the insights about sleep-activity mashes up data collected through the Withings wearables and complementary surveys.
  • the trend for Wearables company is to publish articles that share deep insights ont their users data which became massive. Jawbone Lead Data scientist published such results a month ago ("What makes people happy?"). 
  • it is not banned to pusblish massified data even if they are guaranteed as anonymous in TOU.


By extension, it appears that such communication are able to reinsure audience and consumers, as well as nurturing the scientific research field. It definitely offers a positive image of the Wearable and Digital Health Tech companies (Samsung Simband ; Apple Research Kit ; Google Health Kit ...)

Apple Watch owners are actually pretty pleased with the device, study shows | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it
People who don't consider themselves techies are big fans of the Apple Watch.
Olivier Janin's insight:

This data are coming from an Apple study based on 800 respondents.

And Apple is to announced his Q3 Earnings tomorrow, so this is biz-com orchestration.


Nevertheless are the KPI interesting, as well as their processing by Apple marketing.

  • Comparable are iPad and iPhone adoption/satisfaction rates at their beginning, It makes sense.
  • Distinction between techies and mass-audience. What about generations ? I think Net-Gen. (25-35 yo) must be considered.
  • criterias are : overall satisfaction / design / quality / performance / battery / ease of use


I worry about this last: with only 43% satisfaction, the design issue remains on how to achieve a new UX/UI syntax for our small wrist-screens paired with our Smartphones.

Excerpt:

Garten began by describing Muse’s ability to distinguish a calm mind from an active one, then got into one of its more cutting-edge features, which, though it has not been rolled out commercially, a hacker can set up. With the hack in place, she said, once the user has succeeded in learning to control brain activity (specifically, to vary the speed of electrical pulses by closing his eyes or breathing deeply), he could potentially use the feature to interact with and control physical objects. Garten described it as “telekinesis.”

Fitbit Surging 13% After Analyst Says It's In Shape And Ready To Sprint

Fitbit Surging 13% After Analyst Says It's In Shape And Ready To Sprint | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Fitbit shares are spiking more than 13% after the dual publication of May sales results -- which showed Fitbit devices outsold Apple Watches -- and a bullish Wall Street note that said Fitbit sales are in shape and poised to take off.

Olivier Janin's insight:

Interesting figures : 

  • Fitbit will ship 16 million devices this year
  • Fitbit sold over 10 million fitness trackers devices last year (from TechNewsToday.com)
  • RBC surveys of potential wearable-device buyers show that consumers are more included to purchase a fitness tracker than a smartwatch.
  • Fitbit sold 850,000 of its devices in May, beating the 777,000 AppleWatches sold during the same period.
  • Fitbit Inc. jumped more than 50% in its public trading debut earlier in the month and has gained another 18% since that day. But according to RBC Capital Markets, this growth is just the beginning.
