How People Are Using Smartwatches to Lose Weight and Stay Healthy

The most popular category of applications used on smartwatches are health and fitness-related, according to a survey by research firm Parks Associates.

More than three out of four heads of U.S. households who own and use a smartwatch said they track their steps with their device. Another 60% monitor their heart rates and 53% use the wrist-worn devices to count calories. Among all smartwatch owners, 41% say their most commonly used app is to count calories or reach weight loss goals.

“The market for connected wellness and fitness devices and wearables is surging as people realize their health benefits,” Kristen Hanich, senior analyst at Parks Associates, noted in the report.
