Fitbit announces Surge fitness 'superwatch' and two new fitness bands

Fitbit announces Surge fitness 'superwatch' and two new fitness bands | shubush healthwear | Scoop.it
“More than a week after their existence was leaked, fitness tracker maker Fitbit has officially announced three new wearable devices. The Fitbit Charge is an update to Fitbit's previous Force fitness tracker, but the other two devices — the Charge HR and the Surge — include some powerful new technology that should allow users to get a picture of their health at all hours of the day. The Charge HR tracks a user's heart rate at all times, while Fitbit describes the $249 Surge as a "fitness super watch," built with GPS and eight sensors to track performance in multiple workouts and various sports. All three of the new devices will send data to Fitbit's tracking app so wearers can see their stats in graph form and set specific goals.”

Are Health Wearables Evangelists Fools? | shubush healthwear | Scoop.it
Late last month, TechnologyAdvice released an interesting study looking at whether most people want to use health wearables such as fitness trackers and other tools for health purposes.Here are the top-line results of this study:- 75 percent of U.S. adults do not track their weight, diet, or exercise using a health tracking apps or devices- 43.7 percent had no specific reason for not tracking their fitness - 27.2 percent won’t use these devices due to lack of interest- 25.1 percent of adults are currently using either a fitness tracker or a smartphone app to monitor their health, weight, or exercise.This sounds like pretty bad news for those who believe the era of health wearables is here. But, this study also raises another question: Are health wearables evangelists fools?Fard Johnmar, Founder of Enspektos explains why relevancy is the key to boosting the adoption of health wearables.

Nike CEO Hints at Continued Partnership With Apple to Develop Stylish Fitness Wearables

Nike CEO Hints at Continued Partnership With Apple to Develop Stylish Fitness Wearables | shubush healthwear | Scoop.it
Nike CEO Mark Parker sat down with Bloomberg's Stephanie Ruhle to discuss the company's brand and product strategy (via The Guardian). During the 13-minute-long "Market Makers" segment, Parker confirmed that he is bullish on Apple and the wearables market, hinting at a continued partnership between the two companies at the 9:45 mark. Though Nike recently discontinued further development on its FuelBand fitness wearables, the sports and fitness company is not ready to abandon the wearables market, instead waiting for the market to mature beyond it current geeky status.“"I think it’s going to be a big part of the future, absolutely," said Parker. "I think the form it takes is critical. You can go from the very geeky kind of wearables today – we’ve all seen some of those – to what I think you’ll see in the future, things that are more stealth, more integrated, more stylish and more functional, yes."”

They’ll also support Android, iOS and Mac.Microsoft Health is also open to other devices and apps, with Jawbone’s Up and the apps MapMyFitness, MyFitnessPal and RunKeeper the first to be announced.
