Vertical Integration of Wearables and Insurance Companies

Overtime the demand for wearables, like Fitbit, are increasing. The owners of the product get the details about themselves. However, at a large scale this data is beneficial for various sectors like the insurance companies, the pharmaceutical companies, doctors, etc. But this aggregate data is available only with the brand owner. Considering the insurance company, it can come into an agreement with its insurers, wherein the insurers would use the Fitbit and report the data to the company, which in return would give special discounts on premium amount. This aggregate data, or the Big Data, can then be used for the cost-benefit analysis. Faced with the fear of being misreported, the insurance companies might also go for vertical integration with the Fitbit companies, ensuring a greater market for the same in return of the Big Data.
