Wearable Technology – What is your personal wearable technology style?

February 12th, 2014

Everyone is talking about wearable technology right now, but what does that mean for us? Well it means that soon we will be able to wear technology such as performance trackers, mobile updaters, eyewear, and mood readers. With so many options on wearable tech, how do you know what kind is best for you?

Wearable tech is not only a social conversation starter but it is something that others can join in on with you. Many of the new health and fitness trackers have a communal site where you can go check your progression as well as the progression of others. This gives you a sense of community and urgency, not only do you want to stay involved with a group of people but you want to make sure you are keeping up if not exceeding the goals you set for yourself.

Google Glass is another big player in wearable tech right now. But this is not just an item that benefits only the person wearing it, people can watch and understand from the other person's point of view what happened, or re-watch a meeting or an event to get a closer look.

Companies are looking at partnering with couture fashion designers now too! This means for the ladies, they can wear the technology without a gaudy out of style band. Fitbit and Tory Burch are working together to create a line of gold jewelry that will have the same chip as their already existing wrist bands! This will be the perfect gift idea when it does come out!

Clothes are a big ticket item for wearable technology too. Microsoft is working on a bra that will sense when you are binge eating because of your emotions and it will send you a text to make sure you put that candy bar down! Another company is creating a mood sensing sweater. A different group of people are finalizing the technology in a sweater to help you get directions better! With this sweater it will literally vibrate to give you immediate directions so you can get their easier!

There are so many great ideas and products coming out for wearable tech, we cannot wait to see when everything comes out! Here is a quick list of some awesome products to look out for!

  • Smart Watches
  • Google Glass
  • Visors
  • Health Trackers
  • Bracelets and Necklaces
  • Smart Contact lenses
  • Clothes: Bra, sweaters, dresses and more!
