@afwriter Constant monitoring will certainly change outcomes. Being watched changes behaviors. This could be good in healthcare, of course.

Re: The Future of Health?
 I think the implications of constant monitoring and  false positives could be a problem....

@afwriter:

I belive that is the case with any such new evolution. But i get and undersatnd your point that - this has greater impact due to health related. But the key here is consumers have to be well educated and informed of such false positive scenarios prio to making a call to go for it.

Yes, these could be potential life savers.

Re: The Future of Health?
Will we all end up wearing these?

@afwriter:

I would be inclined to say YES, in near future. Think about this - did we ever think that Fitbit would be that popular? Today we see many going around with Fitbit on their wrists. Also some healthcare companies are promoting fitbit kind of goodies to their employees.

So a very likely situation...

The Future of Health?
Will we all end up wearing these?  I think the implications of constant monitoring and  false positives could be a problem, but this technology is literally going to save lives.  Imagine being able to detect warning signs of a stroke or heart attack hours before the event actually happens.
