The government agency created a new wearables program with the hopes to introduce more innovative health features to the market

Nine tech companies, such as Apple, Fitbit, and Samsung, were selected by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to participate in a pilot government-run program to introduce more innovative health features on smart devices to the market.

The companies in the program gain precertification. This means the companies have the opportunity to bring forward a new idea they want to introduce to the market without having a finished product of the innovation ready. The FDA plans to focus more on the company, rather than the product they bring forward. This was the main reason the FDA only chose nine companies to join the program.

By helping to streamline many of the innovative products these companies want to introduce to the market, the FDA hopes to pressure the medical industry to keep up.
