“Developers Work To Create Apps
Mobile application developers anticipate the smartwatch will be popular among consumers and have created health-related apps to use on the devices.
According to MobiHealthNews, the Apple AppStore contains 264 health and fitness-related Apple Watch apps, including:
- 13 related to medication adherence;
- 13 related to tracking fertility or pregnancy; and
- 12 related to tracking hydration (Comstock, MobiHealthNews, 4/27).
In addition, some apps will be geared toward health care providers, such as Drchrono’s smartwatch app that aims to help doctors manage patient care by sending alerts, such as when a patient arrives for an appointment.”
