Welcome to Plume IQ, our monthly reveal of data-driven intelligence and customer-focused insights from more than 2.1 billion connected devices, and over 44 million locations, managed in the Plume Cloud.
The rise of smart fitness devices
Plume data reveals a significant growth in data consumed by connected fitness equipment when compared to other in-home devices associated with more sedentary lifestyles. Data usage for smart TVs and media players grew just 38% and 16% over the 6-month study period, however, neither came close to the increases for smart bikes and smart trainers which returned 83% and 79% growth in consumption. Plume households are literally switching couches for Peloton bikes!
