This chart indicates that while those discussing wearables in insurance are still mostly expected to be industry insiders, experts, or analysts, they are almost always doing so in a positive and optimistic way. This suggests there is still a buzz around the theme and that industry insiders are positive about what is to come in the years ahead.

Furthermore, the issue’s positive coverage and sentiment on social media among industry experts will encourage insurers that this is a trend that should not be ignored. And similarly, more discussion is likely to mean more developments are happening within the industry, so this can be useful to both determine if activity is picking up and potentially estimate if it is likely to grow in the near future.
