CES: New fitness tracker 'goes on forearm'

But accessories maker Scosche is convinced the future lies in optical armbands which use a light to measure blood flow and calories burned.

The BBC's North America technology correspondent Richard Taylor spoke to the makers about the benefits of the device at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
