With 1/3 of wearable owners stopping use within 6 months, conservatively there are millions of abandoned wearables and fitness trackers, with few opportunities for owners to recycle or resell them. If owners donated these abandoned wearables, they can be used as a motivation to increase fitness with populations who are not typically marketed to by wearable vendors or can't afford them, yet may benefit most. These include hospital patients who are being encouraged to walk; children living in underserved areas; older adults; and people with comorbid conditions. The latter two populations are the ones most likely to track health indicators, but typically in their heads or on paper. Part 1) Collect unused wearables with donation boxes (like the Lion's Club does for eyeglasses). Part 2) Provide free, refurbished wearables to the above populations as an incentive to participate in a fitness program using a program like MyFitnessPal to track activity and provide appropriate incentives.

Wearable devices like fitness trackers or Wi-Fi-enabled spectacles are competing with traditional jewels for space on the body.
