apps.

As new apps continue to emerge and become more 
refined, smartphone users will have more options, which 
can ultimately improve their ability to effectively manage

to track their glucose levels while on the move, making 
the process of SMBG simpler than ever before.

Editor's Notes

  2. http://www.cosmopolitan.co.uk/campus/geek-squad-research-shows-losing-mobile-phone-causes-emotional-distress-due-to-strong-attachments-to_technology
  3. How did we get here?
  4. This was my first mobile phone in 1996, it cost $9.99 per month for 15 minutes. I had it for emergencies in the car and plugged it into the cigarette lighter.
  5. http://money.cnn.com/2014/03/19/technology/mobile/wearable-devices/ How many people are currently using wearables?
  6. Pebble is a smart watch that integrates with Apple and Android apps.
  7. Self tracking dates far back in time. Ben Franklin tracked 13 personal virtues in a daily journal to push himself toward moral perfection. He wrote in his autobiography, “I was surprised to find myself so much fuller of faults than I had imagined, but I had the satisfaction of seeing them diminish.”
  8. A few years ago, it was estimated that more than 69% of US adults track at least one health metric; however, at that point nearly half were tracking it in his or her head.
  9. We live in a time when technology is enabling the exploration of solutions. Suddenly we are all scientists and our discoveries are limited only by our imaginations.
  10. When we self-track it is almost always because we want to solve a problem or answer a question.
  11. The key is to keep it simple. If you aren’t used to tracking, picking a simple app that tracks something for a week – something that is important to you.
  12. There are 800,000 apps for iphone/ipad and 800,000 for Android.
