Will your smartphones make wearable trackers Extinct?

  • As more and more smartphones boast new features, experts predict that wearables could go the way of the dodo, since most consumers prefer to eliminate redundancies and do all their business on a single device.  Especially a device they already own.
  • Many next-generation smartphones are shipping with the ability to track steps, calories, heart rate and more, which industry experts say could make fitness trackers obsolete. 
  • Phones now track steps and calories with the same accuracy of wrist-worn trackers, making them attractive to people who are simply trying to quantify how much they move during their day
