Wearables are hot. So why are they still leaving women cold?

Full disclosure: I love my wearable. Not because of the way it looks. Not because it’s a novelty. But because it gives me information I use daily to push myself toward healthier behavior. As an early adopter, I’ve dabbled in trackers for years. From the pedometer, to Jawbone, to Fitbit—I’ve tried many of them. But […]
