The Wearable health technology market is likely to be one of the most important and fastest-growing markets over the next ten years. Wearable health technology has the potential to drastically reduce healthcare costs while also upending a number of related markets. Better medical care and better use of resources are two of the main things that are driving this new market. With this market predicted to expand in the next few years, let's take a look at a few stocks that have been active over the last week.

Recently, the shares of the stock shot up about 50% in October. This recent jump is following a third-quarter earnings report that exceeded expectations on the top and bottom lines. The strong quarter could in part be due to their DXCMs strategy to offer some of their older devices, at a discounted rate, in price sensitive regions. The strong quarter three performance makes this wearable health tech stock, one to watch in the future.
