That’s true about a lot of things, but in this case I am referring to my uncertainty following a review of this piece covering the recent Apple Developers Conference. Had you watched the 2-hour video, you would have seen 10 minutes covering a fascinating spectrum of healthcare applications for the Apple Watch. At one end of the spectrum, I understand the use of the Watch as a fitness device, but continue to ponder whether it really does a better job of motivating us to move than the FitBit does. At the other end of the spectrum, the presentation described using the Apple Watch to monitor significant parameters such as fetal heart rate. The Apple Watch seems to do a credible job at some of these tasks as well, but as with fitness monitoring, I wonder what it is actually bringing to the party that cannot be accomplished with existing technology Bottom Line. There is little doubt that reliance on “wearables” will one day become commonplace in health care. How steep the adoption curve will be, however, remains an interesting and important topic for conjecture.
