CES 2017 - Health, Fitness & Wellness Technology - Onitor (part 2)

CES presented a lot of new experiences to this conference-hound, but I never anticipated the sheer scope and volume of exhibits, presentations, demonstrations, and hungry entrepreneurs out there. I've been to AAHPERD, IHRSA, GDC....but this was something completely different!

Some of the booths were easily $1M to design, manufacture, ship, and send to Las Vegas in time for the show.

A new company that I had not heard of before is Onitor which displayed their activity tracker and new fitness app. With heart rate sensing and triaxial accelerometer, it has the same basic features as the other dozens of fitness trackers at CES.
I was most interested in how their new app will have customized workouts and meal plans based on user inputs and health and fitness goals.

I was told they have their product in a university-lab to do some validity studies - and I mentioned to them that I would gladly entertain future collaborations for usability or validity projects.
