Parks: 5 percent of US broadband households use a health tracking smart watch

Five percent of US broadband households use a smart watch that offers health and fitness tracking features, according to research firm Parks Associates.

Parks also found that 8 percent of US broadband households use a digital pedometer or activity tracker.

Parks Associates’ research analyst Tejas Mehta pointed out that unless smartwatch makers can convince consumers that these devices offer features separate from their smartphone, they won’t see adoption.
