D&H Expands Wearable Assortment
D&H Distributing said this week that it has greatly expanded its selection of wearable products, adding items from such vendors as Runtastic, Razer, Striiv and Garmin.
The distributor already offered products from Fitbit.
“People want to be connected all the time now, not just socially, but also to their homes and in regard to their health. Wearables have been particularly well-accepted in the home healthcare space, since fitness enthusiasts have long been accustomed to pedometers, heart monitors and even MP3 players worn via arm bands during jogging sessions,” Rob Eby, vice president of purchasing at D&H Distributing, said as part of the announcement.
“However, the ability for users to collect a digital account of their own vitals has far-reaching implications in a healthcare environment where patient records are being converted to electronic form all over the country.”
