Showcased products included headsets that provide health readings, apps that track calories and medical histories, and emergency alert systems that can be worn like a pendant. Over 215 health- and fitness-related exhibitors were on the CES floor, and according to the CEA, the fit tech industry expects to see over 300 million body sensors in use by 2016.
