Just watched Stephen Fry’s attempts to discover if gadgets can make fitness more fun and got the feeling that this series could prove a very effective format for highlighting mHealth innovations. Even in this weeks “Body Beautiful Gadgets” episode there were profiles of some interesting mHealth tech including:
> A Facetime mobile video call over London’s 3G mobile network with Dame Kelly Holmes:
> BitGym’s Virtual Active smartphone app that adds interactive motion gaming experiences to gym exercise:
In a revealing summary at the end Stephen Fry highlights something that I think is a major issue that mHealth developers need to focus on when he suggests that for him until there’s a gadget that can somehow give you the will to exercise for him it’s going to be all about trying to cheat yourself.
