The rise of health and fitness wearables

Increased use of high-speed Internet may be one reason for that jump, but the top driver, according to Harry Wang, director of mobile and health products research at Parks Associates, is that the devices are becoming more personal and more customized.

Wang tells FierceMobileHealthcare that device makers have found that more sophisticated features and functionality drive consumer interest and use. That's critical, as the devices must be used consistently in order to be effective.
