29% of U.S. Broadband Households Have Connected Health Device

New research reveals that 29 percent of U.S. broadband households own a connected health device—up from 27 percent a year ago—while 12 percent of broadband households own multiple connected health devices.

Those are among the findings of Dallas-based research and consulting firm Parks Associates. The firm also reports that more 50 percent of broadband households use an online health tool to communicate with their doctor, access personal health data, or fill prescriptions.

“The adoption rate for fitness trackers and GPS watches has increased, while the adoption rate for other connected health devices has been more stable,” said Harry Wang, director of health and mobile product research at Parks Associates. “Fitness trackers stand out as one of the more successful product categories thanks to the release of better products and major marketing campaigns.”
