072 – Fit Tech in Schools and for Athletes

With fit tech becoming more pervasive in apps, software, and wearables, how does one become more knowledgeable about these digital wellness technologies?  More specifically, how do kids get educated on using this new technology as they start utilizing apps for fitness or dieting?  We’ll take a look at a new study that studied early education about fitness technology with young children.  Next, we look at a potential future scenario where doctors write prescriptions for fitness and health (rather than just medications) for their patients to get the desired health effects and benefits.  Finally, a partnership forged between the University of Tennessee and fit tech company Whoop hopes to advantage UT athletes in their sports performance.
