The next round of wearables is good for more than tracking your steps.
Ava, a fertility wearable that helps couples conceive, raised $9.7 million in a Series A round this week.
The FDA-approved medical device tracks measurements like pulse rate, breathing rate, skin temperature, movement and heat loss to identify the days of each month when a woman is most likely to get pregnant.
The device represents a step for wearables toward more fundamental uses than going swimming with a waterproof Apple Watch.
The use of wearables for fertility is something that could eventually be incorporated into the FitBit or Apple Watch.
