At CES, staying healthy the high-tech way

According to Parks Associates, a Dallas technology research company, most Americans with broadband Internet access own some kind of digital fitness device, with digital scales being the most popular.

But more sophisticated gadgets are much less commonplace. Just 26 percent use a digital blood pressure tester, 13 percent have a digital pedometer to measure distances run or walked, about the same number have an electronic blood glucose tester, and 6 percent use a digital watch that monitors the heart rate.

“I think it’s still very early days for this,” said a Parks Associates analyst, Jennifer Kent.
