Wearables are largely aimed at the person who just wants to maintain a good weight, sleep enough, and maybe get in a little cardio. CNET’s Brian Cooley tells you why 2014 could be the breakout year for wearable tech.

  1. This works under the concept of anything is better then nothing. So if you are at the point that you want to track these kind of things then you probably already working towards some fitness goals and the results you get will be more because you are trying not because of these devices

  2. These things don't make you a workout beast but do make you think more about your activity level. I don't see the benefit to an athletic person but for a couch potato, it gets you off you butt.

  3. I have the basic FiBit Flex on my wrist right now.  I love it.  Why?  Simple.  It connects to my phone (android) and my Win7 desktop.  I work in a hospital and I always wondered how much I walk around.  So today I did 10,111 steps and 4.65 miles of walking.  It all connects via Bluetooth, the only time I need to plug it into a USB is to charge it up every 3-4 days.  FitBit Force is now out, it is a watch and a lot more choices, but you have to interact with it more to get that data I believe.  It also will tell you if your iPhone is ringing but not a android phone!  The question is do I want to interact with it more?  I don't think so.  I mean when I am at work I am busy I don't have time to fool with something on my wrist.  

  4. fitness trackers are pretty pointless and do nothing, it shows you would you don't need to know or care about. Oh i slepted 9 hours….no wonder i feel good…like wtf is the point in these things?
