Fitness tips to stay motivated

For other companies entering the market, its not clear they have provided solutions that address customer needs. This is why I have a lot of questions around the viability of companies like LG and Epson entering the fitness wearable market. Both companies appear that they are starting with technology solutions first and have limited to zero credibility as a brand that knows and understands health and fitness. I applaud LGs more narrow wearable focus on a specific market like fitness (unlike Samsungs more general purpose Galaxy Gear smartwatch looks not to a commercial success so far) and their recognition of lack of expertise in the market by attempting to provide an open platform designed to establish credibility through partners. However, Im not sure that an open technology platform with loose partner affiliation will be enough. Customers will want more integrated solutions that marry devices with rich services. Sony Sony s Core is a bit of similar approach to LG, but I do like Sonys desire to partner with fitness companies to use their pod. The fitness & sport wearables market seems to have reached mainstream momentum if based on products announced and shipping, but we expect to see a fallout of winners and losers in the next few years. The companies that can build a platform around helping their target customers reach their goals will win. Customer intimacy and tightly integrated technology and services that meet these needs will be ultimate winners.
