You know something is effective when it gets banned. The NBA has banned the use of mHealth wearable devices from contract negotiations:

“The data may not be considered, used, discussed or referenced for any other purpose such as in negotiations regarding a future Player Contract or other Player Contract transaction (e.g., a trade or waiver) involving the player,” the CBA states, adding if someone is caught doing just that, a designated grievance arbitrator will have the authority to impose a fine of up to $250,000.

If its good enough to catch the attention of the NBA it might have some application in the real world. The evidence keeps mounting.
