Re: Wearables: how broad an appeal for health monitoring?
There's at least one kind of very common wearable device for managing a chronic condition: the insulin pump for Type 1 diabetics. It's not collecting and sending data that can then be acted on; it's managing the disease directly. But it's strapped on your belt -- truly wearable in that sense.

Wearables: how broad an appeal for health monitoring?
I can't help thinking of the astronauts in the film version of Apollo 13 ripping off their monitoring gadgets because they didn't want the flight surgeon keeping tabs on them in the midst of a crisis.

If health monitors get too good, you'll have to rip them off before going to the Christmas party if you don't want a lecture on overindulging in alcohol and dessert at your next doctor's visit.

Telehealth's moment
Teleheath is a technology where the time has come from both the tech and the business model standpoint. Big obstacle has been getting doctors paid for virtual visits, and I think we'll see those barriers blown away as the cost savings and convenience just seem too compelling.
