Global – No longer just glorified step counters, new consumer wearable and app offerings are embedding technology that was once only available to professionals.
As health and wellness continue to permeate mainstream culture, more consumers are looking for more nuanced ways to track their performance. Brands such as Whoop are now creating consumer-facing products including the Whoop 2.0 performance tracking system, which uses the same science and technology as products created for professional athletes.
Similarly, mind-training experts are making their field more understandable through more accessible technology. Macunx VR, for instance, brings the professional memorisation technique of mind palaces to consumers who want to learn anything from a language to the names of all the capitals in the world.
