Wearables Right or Wrong? The Samsung Simband is solid tech with a dubious mission

Samsung’s Simband data graphs look absolutely breathtaking, at least if you’re a geek for real-time electrocardiogram results. But consumers won’t be seeing the Simband activity tracker anytime soon—and this leads us to another frank, surly, and altogether critical installment of Wearables Right or Wrong?

In Episode Three of my new weekly video show, I discuss the wisdom behind Samsung’s desire to champion the digital health space; Fitbit’s dominating market position in activity-tracking wristbands; and the galling immaturity of so many augmented reality headsets.

Please tweet your comments to @JonPhillipsSF, and make sure to read about my lead topic in detail: Samsung announce Simband, a wearables dev kit, to cement leadership in digital health.
