I am not one to criticize people buying IoT products for things that might not totally be necessary to improve your life.  Considering the overall increase to IoT spending helps a company like Novotech, why would I?  More importantly, I have blogged a lot about how I have personally used M2M to improve my health….often buying expensive products that might not have been totally necessary to achieve my goals.
