There are hundreds of wearable health devices and those using one have an elevated interest in their health and well-being.

It could be a FitBit, Apple Watch, Oura Ring (which I use), or something else, their use is a major clue. Whether you think this emerging technology is a gimmick, or offers the user (patient) helpful insights, isn't the point. Are you on board?

To better understand this growing patient population start using the technology yourself.

Quality of sleep – Between the Oura Ring and the SnoreLab app, I'm able to objectively measure the depth of my sleep and connect the dots between sleep and lifestyle choices.

Heart rate variability – This objective measurement between the sympathetic and para- sympathetic nervous system has come a long way.

Successful meditation – I use Muse to properly chill. Just 20-minutes a day and I'm much more mellow.

Welcome to the future. Are you keeping up?
