@bulk    I see.  Thanks for the explanation.  Biometerics has merit for sure, probably more science than I want to apply.  But if I had millions resting on it - as Beth mentioned earlier - I would probably think differently.  

I appreciate you taking the time to bring me up to speed ( no pun intended ) on this topic.

There have been a lot of rumors that Apple is looking to take their smart watch in the health monitoring direction, they have even meet iwth the FDA. But those are just rumors and no one will really know until it launches.

Whatever they do to make the iWatch stand out will be fascinating to see. Apple needs a big hit right now, and I'm not fully convinced smart watches are that hit.

I think we will definatly see an Apple smart watch, but when it comes out it will be unline anything else on the market.

With Nokia seemingly spearheading the popularity of Windows Phones, it would appear anyone can pop out of the woodwork. I also see Apple doing just that, their own thing. They like to refine an idea and have it copied, so smart watches might not be on their itinerary.

@CandidoNick, I agree that the smart watch will being to play a greater roll in our lives. However; I do not think Samsung will lead the way, they were first out the gate of the major players, but I think we will see third parties rule in this space. Apple might do their own thing, and be hold ground in the apple sphere but I think the small players will run with this ball.

And with the rise of smart watches led by Samsung, were going to be seeing more and more people with multiple devices that MUST be replaced every few years, charged daily, and hold weight in our lives. The idea of electronic apparel is truly gaining steam.

@Louis, 

If someone has pushed themself to the point of total fatigue and are out of breath that is far different then their heart rate being maxed out. Top athletes train to improve their performance and knowing where your peak heartrate is and being able to sustain or lower that number is keep to perforamance fore endurance athletes, also being able to track and monitor resting heartrate is key to measureing recovery and overall improvement. being able to use biometrics to capture this data in real time and apply that knowledge imediatly can be used to imoprove overall training in athletes. and help them perform at higher levels for longer times.

@Beth, I think that might be the only way to come close, it seems like there are a lot areas where this might get tricky for them. Of course I guess they could always just have all the player sign waivers and that would take care of it.

Pierre, you are right on point with that assumption. Nike is already making movies in that direction, their FuelBand is a consumer focused wearable fittness tracker and the Hyperdunk are smart shoes with sensor intergrated to capture performance data. I would say there is no doubt we will see them move towards intergrating more advanced tech into their exisisting product line. From the consumer sie it has a built in upgrade roadmap, when your current shoes have hit the end of the road its time to get new ones with upgraded sensors.
