Wearable Tech and Form Factor

This tweet really got my juices flowing as I consider the movement with wearable tech and the various form factors we see hitting the mobile health world.

I love when someone immediately discounts a form factor as something that people won’t use. You have to remember that their response is just one data point. There could be an entire customer segment that will have no problem with or may even prefer that form factor.

I think we have to remember that we’re still in the very early stages of figuring out which mobile health form factors are going to become most popular. What’s not going to change is the impact of having an always on, always connected device attached to a variety of sensors. This is the future of mobile health regardless of the various form factors.
