Wearables - Are they alone enough for improving health?Created by:
Fitbit, jawbone, sony smartband - there are so many different types of wearables available in the market. The wearable technology is becoming more affordable and many people now resort to these gadgets for improving health. But my question is "Can these gadgets work alone to improve the health?" My husband bought a fitbit few months back. Being a technology geek, he bought the latest model of the wearable with the updated features. He used it initially for monitoring the steps taken, calories burnt and other functions. However, after some time he got bored and that device is just lying in my cupboard. I believe that the use of such wearable devices if joined with some reward, motivates human to use it for a prolonged time. I have even heard from my friends and relatives, many of them have stopped using such devices after few months. Have you too experienced this or have any idea how to keep the motivation factor active for a long time for the use of wearables?
