The smartwatch manufacturing bandwagon is growing more and more crowded (with Nissan now jumping aboard). The rapidly growing popularity of smartwatches and other “self-tracking” devices seems to be fueling a lifestyle movement called the “Quantified Self.” NPR has an interesting story on self-trackers, here, along with a list of apps to help you find meaning in the data of your bodily functions. Happy quantifying.
