Fitter, happier
More productive
Comfortable
Not drinking too much
Regular exercise at the gym, three days a week
Getting on better with your associate employee contemporaries
At ease
Eating well, no more microwave dinners and saturated fats
A patient, better driver
A safer car, baby smiling in back seat
Sleeping well, no bad dreams
No paranoia
Careful to all animals, never washing spiders down the plughole
Keep in contact with old friends, enjoy a drink now and then
Will frequently check credit at moral bank, hole in wall
Favours for favours, fond but not in love
Charity standing orders on sundays, ring-road supermarket
No killing moths or putting boiling water on the ants
Car wash, also on sundays
No longer afraid of the dark or midday shadows, nothing so ridiculously teenage and desperate
Nothing so childish
At a better pace, slower and more calculated
No chance of escape
Now self-employed
Concerned, but powerless
An empowered and informed member of societ, pragmatism not idealism
Will not cry in public
Less chance of illness
Tires that grip in the wet, shot of baby strapped in backseat
A good memory
Still cries at a good film
Still kisses with saliva
No longer empty and frantic
Like a cat
Tied to a stick
That's driven into
Frozen winter shit, the ability to laugh at weakness
Calm, fitter, healthier and more productive
A pig in a cage on antibiotics

If there is a future of wearables, it’s in health and fitness only. There should be more sensors added to see blood glucose proper blood pressure monitoring high lows not just pulse and others. That’s it, they need to stop wasting time with gimmicks. I’m still waiting for Apple Watch to enable ecg in my region so I can get it for my parents.

What about blood pressure monitoring? I've seen a few companies show this off as an optical sensor without the need for a pressurised cuff link around the wrist. Also there is research to suggest we may be able to do glucose monitoring without piercing the skin. Then there is body temperature monitoring, sweat salt level monitoring, UV monitoring, and even radiation monitoring. I think weave only just begun in the wearable market.

The sensors are the same type, but they are made by different manufacturers and therefore the accuracy of each sensor is different. I think the strongest company will be the one the will succeed of creating a good eco system.

One thing I always wanted for a smartwatch/wearables to have is additional security by becoming a 3rd if not 4th authentication tool. As an example, what if when you login to your Windows, iOS/Mac OS, or Android device, you'll also receive a notification on your wearable to either allow the login to push through, input another set of pins or code, or put it a certain distance of the device to proceed. Isn't that a useful feature?

Why can’t apple combine data from watch and iPhone for a more accurate fitness tracking?!

I more or less agree that there probably won't be that much more innovation but one could still see it very differently. Simple step tracking has been around for decades and for the longest time there was just that. The last few years have been pretty accelerated in that regard, with highly usable pulse, much better activity and sleep tracking as well as ECG. So in a way we are in the golden time right now.
