MacVoices #14066: Road to Macworld – Jeff Gamet Gets Fit and Wears Tech To Do It (And More)

What would The Road to Macworld be without a conversation with Jeff Gamet? Boring, that’s what. Jeff has two sessions at the show this year, Wearable Tech: What’s Hot, What’s Not and Fitness Tech: Getting Healthy with Your Mac and iPhone…sessions that are distinct, but also overlap. Jeff discusses why “wearable tech” has a broader definition that you might think, how wearable fitness tech started to define the space, and why it has gone much further. Why convenience is and is going to be a critical factor in selecting fitness tech, a debate over Google Glass as the beginning and not the end, and the time and trouble all this stuff takes are part of the discussion, as is Jeff’s podcasting appearances at the show.
