Could Chromebooks be key to health and fitness tech?


If MWC has taught us one thing it’s that wearable tech and fitness tracking devices are still the hottest new gadgets to hit the market. But are there ways we could make the whole process even easier?

Gigaom reports that instead of using a wearable device to send data to the cloud via Bluetooth 4.0 to a mobile device, Chrome OS support for Bluetooth 4.0 LE means we could soon cut out the middleman – making the wearables even easier to use and the data even more valuable.

In the future, companies could develop ways to sync data directly through a browser, meaning all you’d need is a tracking device and a Chromebook.
