Re: Tough
Interesting to read "compared to ten years ago, there are fewer African-American women working in tech," and ponder why that is. It does seem that the battle lately has been women in tech in general. maybe setting aside for a time the battle minorities as well have in entering and staying the field.

Re: Tough
I feel like smart watches and Fitbits are really popular, at least in fitness communities. And they aren't always visible... Not sure what other human demographics they might appeal to but there's no shortage of them at the gym. My dogs also have a version of them! They're trackers that attach to their collars but also monitor activity levels, etc.

Tough
The wearables market is already tough enough. Marketing these devices is also a problem. 

I don't see people wearing a multitude of wearables. So I'm pessimstic on the growth prospects. Maybe if there is some kind of recurring service revenue for these things it will do well. But the hardware itself? Tough business to be in.
