The Wall Street Journal reports on the increased amount of digital health devices at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. A spokeswoman from the Consumer Technology Association said there are 511 companies registered to exhibit under the digital health category, which is up from 472 last year. Devices this year include a wristband that monitors blood pressure, a sleep sensor that detects if the user has stopped breathing, and a device that tracks the heart rate of a baby in utero. "A lot of these companies are moving full steam ahead in terms of collecting data and using it to help the personalization of the customer," Moor Insights & Strategy Analyst Anshel Sag said.
