Internet of things is being trapped in paradigm of wearables
Off topic for this blog, at least for now is the concept of Internet of Things (IoT). I remain convinced there will be a convergence between IoT and financial services that we just haven’t seen yet.
Meantime wearables based on health matters are the next big shiny thing that fan folks are focussed on.
On wrist-worn devices, we believe the health and fitness category will produce the killer apps. The whole field of personal fitness and health apps will boom as the hardware matures and adds more advanced sensors. Dieting apps, workout apps, and medical apps will try out different approaches — e.g., gamification, social media integration, and data visualization — to see what sticks.
