[CNMO News] With development of wearable devices, products such as smart watches and smart bracelets are very popular. But there is widespread skepticism among general population about their validity, accuracy, and whether they contribute to some OCDs and eating disorders. Wearable smart devices like fitness trackers, pedometers and smartwatches are indeed motivating people to exercise more and lose weight, a new study from University of South Australia has found.
Relevant scientists reportedly reviewed nearly 400 previous studies involving more than 160,000 people worldwide to confirm the positive effects of wearables on people. All of these people used wearable devices to monitor their bodies. The results showed that these people walked 40 minutes more per day, about 1800 steps, and lost an average of 1 kg in five months compared to people who did not wear smart devices. .

The study highlights contribution of smart wearables to address today's "growing prevalence of unhealthy conditions associated with physical inactivity," including cardiovascular disease and stroke, diabetes and type 2 cancer, and mental illness.
Overall, study shows that wearable smart devices are effective for people of all ages over a long period of time. It encourages exercise to be part of everyday life and helps people achieve their weight loss goals and reduce depression and anxiety. In addition, there is evidence that wearables not only help with exercise and weight loss, but also help lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
The data show that global shipments of smart wearables increased by 1,500% from 2014 to 2020. Corresponding expenses will reach $2.8 billion in 2020.
