More than half of mobile health and fitness app users plan to use wearables to track their health, according to a survey of 1,000 app users by mobility firm Mobiquity.

Of those who plan to use wearables, 63 percent say they will use their wearable device every day. In terms of devices, more than half say they will use pedometers, 48 percent cite wristbands and 45 percent name smartwatches as their wearable of choice.

Android and iPhone smartphone users are more likely to become wearable users in the future compared with BlackBerry and Windows Phone smartphone owners, the survey finds.

Mobiquity has put together an infographic summarizes the findings of its survey, and FierceMobileIT recently compiled an informative history of wearable devices to provide some context about the exploding popularity of wearables:
