Wearable Technologys Potential to Help Detect Illness

AUGUST 11, 2020


The world’s most significant health advances have resulted from medical research, and Fitbit is proud to say that its devices are the most commonly used physical activity devices to appear in published work. Fitbit has worked with leading research institutions to pioneer new approaches to cancer treatment, weight loss, and more.
