WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT (circa 2013)
I've thinking about this for a long time: an Apple watch only makes sense if wearing it provides you with information you do not already have. The real transformation would be that an iWatch would combine all different kind of sensors and monitors and combine them with communication and applications you find in an iphone.
You can wear a watch 24 hours a day on your skin. Because of that it can monitor in real-time your temperature, heartbeat, glucose levels, sleep patterns, position, speed, etc. and communicate all that info to services. I would expect to see an iHealth service for seniors or people suffering from diabetes, raising an alarm automatically when sensors detect an anormal situation. Or an iProtect program that would act as a generic "panic button" or "personal 911" in case of trouble.
Of course this needs to fit into a 3cm square profile and have a one-week battery capacity, but I believe these are all solvable problems. Whether they will be solved in 2013 by Apple is the real question!

Think that wearables are freaky, consider ingestible sensors!

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT
Companies should do this more often: experiment with new technologies - cloud, analytics, wearables, etc. - to explore new business opportunities with minimal investments. All technology companies do it yet few in the traditional environments seem to grab the opportunity. Why?

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT
Gyms are changing with the introduction of technology that let's gymgoers - here bikers using the Flywheel solutions - see how they do and compare themselves to others.

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT
Looks like we have just started to scratch the surface of what technology can do for humans and their wellness. To date, most digital technologies have been applied to office work - thinks MS office - or personal communications - think Facebook. More recent technologies that include sensors - think Apple watch - connected to the Internet are changing the game.

Not only do these new techs provide you with bio-feedback - instant heart rate, number of steps, watts, etc. - they also mash it up with the data from thousands of others. And the Internet has shown the power and the transformation that can come when you interconnect seamlessly millions and billions of people.

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT
As I wrote recently in the "Pyramid of Digital Needs" (fmcs.digital/blog/pyramid-of-digital-needs/), security is one of the most basic needs. When we don't feel secure and private then it is difficult to enjoy the benefits of social networks and all the other tools that digital now provides. It is essential that corporations address security and privacy in a meaningful way in order for their clients, employees and partners to use their new digital tools and embrace the digital transformation that most enterprises have recently embarked on.

Also worth reading from Pew Research:Perceptions of privacy & security: http://www.pewinternet.org/2014/11/12/public-privacy-perceptions/Americans and cybersecurity: http://www.pewinternet.org/2017/01/26/americans-and-cybersecurity/ Privacy & information sharing: http://www.pewinternet.org/2016/01/14/privacy-and-information-sharing/ Privacy in the digital Age: http://www.pewinternet.org/2015/06/03/privacy-in-the-digital-age/and many more on the Privacy and safety topic: http://www.pewinternet.org/topics/privacy-and-safety/
