Good point - there is the potential to really overdo on measuring things. How my jeans fit is the best indication I have of whether I'm working out enough to balance out what I'm eating. Also, I've found that devices like the FitBit are really limiting in what they can measure.

>> As Nike is seemingly getting out of fitness wristband segment, the skeptism of wristband business raises.

The biggest challenge is that the margin will be too low for anyone to make this a core business. If I cannot afford a watch of $200, why will I buy something like this for that amount when I have my phone in the pocket. The opportunity may be in mHealth but that may be for people with chronic disease problems. But we need to wait for Apple to launch its iWatch. They have figured how to make great products and can change this conversation.

>> .Lenove is in the back of innovation, they can afford to wait to see what shakes out and buy that business out in 5 years time

That was the old Lenovo. They had expected that the PC curve will not change - will continue to grow. They need to become early adopters now or they will be in trouble. Businesses now are global and anyone that fails to think that way cannot compete.

>> BTW Apple needs those wearable peripherals too..so where are they?

Apple is coming later in the year and when they come, they will redesign and redefine the sector in Apple's way. Wearable is going to be a huge part of the mobile mix and that is important.

>> Is Lenovo winding up its own smartwatch or something new

We will see - this will be the first time they are moving into a new area quick. Few years ago, there were so sure that PCs could keep them in business. Not anymore. We will see how this pivot works out.

This is going to be the next huge consumer electronic market with fashionable wearables with one to multiple applications embedded.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
