pitching its lackluster Apple Watch as a health monitoring device – although that may also be due to its senior executives increasingly viewing technology as something to help them in their old age.

Or maybe to increase their bonuses?

I'm just not believing the crap that's coming out into the tech market as being "helpful" to users. Most of it only seems to benefit the company that makes it. And yes, I'm sure the health insurance companies would love to make a few million a year payment to Comcast (and others) to have this monitoring going on for them.
