More Than 40M U.S. Smartphone Owners Use Fitness, Wellness Apps

More than 40 million U.S. residents who have a smartphone actively use a wellness or fitness application on the device, according to a survey by Parks Associates, MobiHealthNews reports (Dolan, MobiHealthNews, 2/3).

The findings are based on the results from a representative sample in the second quarter of 2014 of U.S. households with broadband (Parks Associates survey, December 2014).

The survey found that the head of household in one-fourth of homes with broadband service tracked fitness or caloric intake with a mobile app.

In addition, researchers found that health devices accounted for 4% of the machine-to-machine connections in 2014 (MobiHealthNews, 2/3). M2M connections communicate using WiFi or Bluetooth technology (iHealthBeat, 8/12/11).
