The Wearable Runners Really Want

The other day I talked to someone who is training for a marathon. They tried a couple wearables to help in their process but wanted something more. Both Luke and I look into the mind of a runner and hopefully help in conveying the message. Luke also got a 360 camera and was showing us what it can do for his trip to Europe. Season 3 of Wearable Today comes to an end with episode 99. Since Luke will be in Europe and I will be heading to SXSW, we will be taking a few weeks off before we jump...

Only problem is I don’t know the issue until now. Can’t fix things if you don’t know. Wearable Today Episode #80: All Show notes are here Do you have an idea for wearables in the healthcare industry?
