Other interesting takeaways: More women than men (39% compared to 34%) responded positively to the $149 Withings Activité Pop, a colorful smartwatch with classic timepiece design. "It doesn't look like the usual wearable gadgets that track fitness," one female respondent said. "I love it for that—it's fashionable."

Male respondents, however, greatly preferred The Dash, a pair of wireless activity-tracking earbuds. Men valued the Dash $60 more on average than women, who were concerned about whether they would fit in their ears. That could signal Dash has an opening to do a female-oriented version with a smaller fit. It was older men in particular most interested in the Dash— younger men and women alike showed less interest in the product.

What were the flops? Socks! Poll respondents undervalued Sensoria's Smart Socks by more than $100, with several comments questioning the need for activity-tracking socks that analyze your running stride. "This seems like something you would use on one or two runs, but once you get an idea of what your stride is like, you no longer need the data it provides," said one respondent.

The TIME/First Insight poll ran from Jan. 9 to Jan. 12, receiving 1,361 responses. Respondents were presented with nine devices showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show and asked how much those items should cost, how they responded to each item, and to leave any additional comments about each item. The respondents were mostly male, early adopters, between the age of 18-34 and Apple users compared to female, late adopters, older consumers and Android or other smartphone users.

The total list of devices was as follows:
