Intelligence of Connected Fitness things

Connected devices like wearables are almost synonymous with fitness/health applications. What we expect from the systems we rely on to take our fitness and health matters into our own hands often falls short due to user experience, context, interoperability, and a lack of expert oversight on the data from these devices. This is a talk about how we put the expert first by connecting fitness experts to connected fitness things.
