Wearable Fitness Tracker Summary 2016 – Many see the Fitness Tracker as Little more than a Glorified Pedometer – Research and Markets

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Wearable
Fitness Tracker Summary”
report to their offering.

Wearable fitness trackers have been purchased at a rate of 2-3 times vs.
smartwatches.

People have been most influenced to purchase a fitness tracker by seeing
them on others who wear them and by friends and family. Advertising,
social and digital media have only so far had a modest effect on
consumer purchasing patterns.

Fitness trackers are considered by many to help motivate them to
exercise more. Although they have some features that did not exist 5-10
years ago, many of those polled see the fitness tracker as little more
than a glorified pedometer.

The market for purchasing the same wearable device is divided. About 50%
are willing to purchase the same wearable device, while another 40% are
not likely or only somewhat likely, with another 10% not knowing what
they would do. The same holds true – roughly – for purchasing another
wearable fitness device.

There is still a viable market for additional products to be introduced
in this industry, but we believe it is already started to become
overcrowded. We believe that non-traditional marketing and having the
fitness tracker out in the market with as many people wearing it as
possible will be key to mass success. This report provides extensive
detail and data to be as successful as possible in this market segment.
