David Pogue visits Apple's spaceship, puts Watch through its paces (video)

Five minutes of free press on CBS Sunday Morning.

From "Tracking your health data through wearable devices," which aired Sunday:

Experts say devices like smartwatches that continually monitor your health data can also give you early warnings about medical problems before a doctor might. Correspondent David Pogue looks at how self-tracking data may one day help detect conditions like infectious diseases, type II diabetes, heart conditions or even cancer.

Cue the video:

My take: Before there was Joanna Stern at the Wall Street Journal there was Pogue at the New York Times.

    We are atop a gold mine with the Apple Watch facilitating the gush of new revenues to spew forth from the monitoring and prediction of personal health related issues. I can’t help but feel that we are on the cusp of some new health features to be announced in the next several years that will drive increasing revenues for the Watch. As Michael Snider (the Stanford School of Medicine Professor) says, 3.8B people on the planet have a smartphone. If the health community and Apple can get those same people cognizant and fully alert to the critical health value of having a health tracking & monitoring device on their wrist, then the potential for the Apple Watch sales revenues explodes. More important, though, thousands and thousands of lives will be saved.

      Especially as insurance companies more and more see the benefits to their FINANCIAL health as well as their subscribers physical (and mental) health and provide health trackers – hopefully Apple Watch 🙂 – for free.

      Historically, humans have made great advances every time we could make new measurements (temperature, weight, charge, …). This will be no different. Collecting daily health stats on millions of people is bound to lead to new health discoveries.
