Dear sirs

My name is Erica Murimba. I am studying for a MSc in Marketing as Southbank Unversity. As a part of my dissertation I need to complete some research. The topic of my dissetation is
"A study of wearable technology acceptance in healthcare monitoring in the UK."
I would appreciate it very much if you could post the link to my survey on your forum to get respondents. The survey is being completed anonymously. No email or ip addresses will be collected.The information provided will not be used for any purpose other than the specified research.
 My dissetation supervisor is Dr Sun. Let me know if you need her contact email.
Thank you for your time. Please let me know if you can post it for me. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Regards,
Erica Murimba

Seems it doesn't apply to me. Since I don't own a wearable device that measures health or fitness.

As Patti said to me when I said that Liam - the Libre!

It never occurred to me that eg an insulin pump oe a Libre is a wearable bit of technology.  I don't normally insert stuff I wear into myself.

Ooh, I dunno - the odd bra strap, sometimes !

Hi. The device has to help you monitor you health or fitness. It does not have to measure. So if you wear a device that monitors your sugar levels or monitors your heart rate when you exercise, then you qualify. Thanks

Never used a Libre  and a pump doesn't look like it counts.
