Biometrics: The Key to Improving Our Health

Biometrics is rapidly becoming an integral part of our daily lives, often without us realizing it. From unlocking phones with fingerprints to tracking physical health with fitness trackers like Fitbit and Apple Watch, biometric data is widely used for various purposes.

Fitness trackers, in particular, use biometric data to monitor the wearer's health, including their pulse, heart rate, oxygen level, and blood pressure. This information can serve as a visual reminder for the wearer to make healthy lifestyle changes for long-term benefits.

What exactly is biometrics? How does it impact our health? In this post, we will explore the ways biometrics and biometric wearables can promote a healthier lifestyle. We will also take a closer look at the growing market of biometrics, which is expected to reach $50 billion by 2024.

Wearable fitness trackers, such as smartwatches, bands, rings, and necklaces, are designed to collect biometric data to monitor physical activity and health. This data includes body fat percentage, hydration, heart rate, and sleep quality, among others. The accuracy of the data collected is dependent on the precision of the sensors used, however, each year the technology continues to improve.

With the rise of the biometrics market, the technical capabilities behind it are also advancing quickly. For example, Amazon is reportedly developing a voice-activated wrist-worn device that can track emotions. With the recent focus on mental health, there is likely to be an increased demand for wearable devices and apps to help manage stress and maintain good health.

Biometric data in wearable devices offer a unique avenue to provide better virtual care for individuals looking to track their health, seniors and people living in remote areas.
