    But, if they engage physicians to recommend these products, wearables and apps will be viewed as part of healthcare and become permanent fixtures.”

    A study by an Indianapolis-based healthcare analytics firm found that employees using wearable fitness monitoring devices cost on average $1,292 less to insure than employees in a control group.
