Post CES 'Most Mentioned' and More

Mike Feibus

Following CES 2018, I have plenty to explore in healthtech, especially the design, metrics, and integrations on the verge with wearables, hearables, and other health tech trends. I’ll be touching on insights with Samsung and MobileHealth emergency response system.

Pay attention to directional changes in the health sector in regards to diabetes & hearing aids.

Non-intrusive data collection is huge, but more importantly, what consumers can gain from the metrics without the data overload.

 

Notice the twitter ‘most mentioned’ - if you’re on twitter, follow me here for updates.

FT INSIGHTS: 2018 CES Preview

Mike Feibus

With CES fast approaching, I’m breaking down my predictions for the hot trends and themes for 2018. It’s an exciting time for healthtech, from sleeptech to hearables. Voice assist, such as Google Voice, Microsoft’s Cortana, and Amazon’s Alexa will be expanding throughout your home this year. Mixed reality, augmented reality and virtual reality, have grown up with new developments for business application. Find out when you can catch me at the Digital Health Summit at CES, and watch more on my Youtube Channel here.

How Healthy Are You, Really?

Mike Feibus

Good question! You have a fitness band. So you know how many steps you take each day. But you're not much closer to answering the critical question, how healthy are you, really?

VO2max is a valuable metric for evaluating fitness and health. Unfortunately, it’s been a very difficult metric to gather, requiring extensive lab tests. That's changing now, thanks in no small part to wearables metrics pioneer Firstbeat. The V02max metric is now available on Firstbeat-equipped wearables like the vivosmart 3 from Garmin, the Huawei Band 2 Pro and the Jabra Elite Sport hearables. That, in turn, is empowering wearables vendors to give us some good old-fashioned fitness assessment and advice.

In our latest FT Insight video interview, we speak with Aki Pulkinnen, who heads up Firstbeat’s consumer business, about the importance of VO2max, what it means for this new band of wearables – and for your health.

The latest hearables are now available from Bragi, including a fully customizeable version tailored by hearing-aid supplier Starkey for better comfort and sound quality. Plus, they won't fall out. Also: OS upgrade brings new features to the original Dash as well.

    There's lots more! Check out my FT Insights interviews withBragi CEO Nikolaj Hviid and Starkey CMO Chris McCormick on my YouTube Channel.
