One of the major markets for wearable sensors in this region is the sports and fitness market. Products like Nike Fuelband, Jawbone UP, Microsoft Band and Fitbit have come in the market that is there for fitness tracking. These devices are worn on the body to track various parameters such as steps taken, distance travelled, calories burned etc. and can be synced with the phone to track the progress daily. These devices are getting popular in this region because of the serious problem of people being overweight and obese. In USA, more than 2 in 3 adults are overweight or obese, more than 1 in 3 persons are obese and more than 1 in 20 adults have extreme obesity. This problem is growing because of the irregular, unhealthy diet and the lack of exercise. Wearable devices are helping masses to get more fit. The application of wearable devices in sports and fitness is becoming a huge market in the North America region.
