Connected health devices gaining popularity in U.S. homes

Harry Wang, director of health and mobile product research at Parks Associates, said the most popular connected health devices are treadmills, exercise bikes and elliptical machines.

“These devices come with built-in support for mobile health apps, which effectively merges the demands of mobile and healthcare consumers,” he said. “Wearables are another developing area for digital health, and this market is getting increasingly competitive … to be successful in connected health, all form factors will need to leverage mobile connections in order to keep users engaged."
