These employees have undergone “specific training on wearable technology and can provide customized, one-on-one training sessions to help customers get the most out of their wearable tech.”

Essentially, these Health Tech Trainers will help customers from start to finish on how to use their wearable and integrate it with their smartphone, and maximize health data tracked. The TELUS Learning Centre allows customers to book free in-store sessions for one-on-one training.

Nielson’s recent Connected Life study estimated 18% percent of Canadians already own a wearable device, with 20 percent intending to buy one in 2015 (Apple Watch anyone?).
