Google X Research Division Announces Health Tracking Band

Google today announce a Health Tracking Band. As much as I love Google, the one released image seems to lack the immediacy of an imminent launch. Don’t get me wrong it looks fairly nice.

Made all the more unfortunate with Samsung’s SIMBAND announcement today of the successor to the maligned Samsung Gear Fit (which I sort of liked in its place – as a gift for someone else’s beautiful life-less-sporty).

The Samsung SIMBAND announcement look like a proper product, taking the market onto a higher place … yes even compared to the Apple Watch.

The Google product will apparently be targeting the medical devices market. Some of the claims about what it can do again strongly suggest that there are new technologies that are going to be imminently available to sporty folks.

One day our doctors will prescribe one to all of us. Maybe.
