The technology for wearable technology has only just scratched the surface even though they are so impressive. Companies like Apple, Google, Oculus, Samsung, etc. These devices surely prove to be incredibly useful to the wearer because they provide real-time statistics of their daily activities, if and when those features are turned on. The companies actually market them based on these amazing tracking features. Some of these devices, like the Apple Watch, don’t even need a phone nearby to carry out all of their functions. They have some motion sensors which are embedded in them, which in most cases are amazingly accurate. We can easily say that after the invention of the modern smartphone, the advent of wearable technology was and still is the next big thing; because that’s what all of these companies are all about, “the next big thing.” I have listed out some of the most famous and incredibly hyped up devices right now.
Fitness trackers have proven to be a best friend to us fitness enthusiasts who really need something to track all of our workouts. Some people track how many calories they burn and consume food depending on that number. They also have apps that dictate what they can and cannot eat. This is usually what celebrities do to maintain their skinny figure and rock hard abs.
Smart watches are now making fitness trackers obsolete because smartwatches have some of the most accurate fitness trackers in them. The best example for this would be the Apple Watch. This watch does way more than tell the time. It is like having a very smartphone on your wrist. People usually use them for calls, messages, emails, getting updated on social media, etc.
Smart glasses from Google, which is also called Google Glass, is exactly something out of a Sci-Fi movie. It is a pair of glasses that also has a transparent display that projects data onto your glass but manages to not obstruct your vision. It can even record your real-life scenarios and do so many things that can help you get through your day.
Smart jewelry like smart rings and smart bracelets have some sensors embedded in them as well. These things vibrate when your phone receives a call or a notification. They also have some safety feature where you can use it to alert the police or your emergency contacts if you are in some sort of trouble.
Smart clothing and implantable technology: Smart electronic devices are incorporated into clothing and also under your skin to give us some information regarding heartbeat and other medical reasons. These implants can constantly keep track of your vitals and other information.
