Survey: 75% of adults don't use mHealth apps, tracking devices

Even in the current boom of mHealth apps and fitness tracking devices, 74.9 percent of adults do not use such apps or devices, according to a TechnologyAdvice survey.

The most common reason for not tracking fitness or health was general lack of interest (27.2 percent). The second-most common reason for not using these tools was concerns over device cost (17.7 percent).

However, the majority of respondents (43.7 percent) did not indicate a specific reason for not tracking their fitness.

More than half of respondents said financial incentives, such as lower health insurance premiums, would make them more likely to track their fitness.

The survey collected responses from more than 900 adults.
