Most first-generation wearable technologies are functional but far from highly fashionable. You will find them on the bodies of those who love to adopt the latest and greatest fitness gadgets and those dedicated geeks who regularly put form above fashion.
The Latest Wearable Gadgets To Watch Out For in 2015 include:
Google Glass is a type of wearable technology with an optical head-mounted display (OHMD). It was developed by Google X with the mission of producing a mass-market ubiquitous computer. Google Glass displays information in a smart-phone-like hands-free format. Wearers communicate with the Internet via natural language voice commands.
This watch strap turns any timepiece into a smart-watch. Thanks to its replaceable adaptors, it can be fitted to any watch with lug ends between 18 and 24mm wide. The brains are in the strap, so you can see how many steps you’ve taken, distance travelled and calories burned by glancing at the screen.
Smartphones, for all their smarts, often need a little nap in the late afternoon. Charging them on the go can be a pain… unless you happen to have a belt packing a 2,100mAh battery. It promises to be weather resistant, and hardwearing enough to take all the thrills and spills that come with wearing trousers. When not in use, the charging cable sticks to the inside of the belt strap using magnets, and it’s slim enough not to cause an unsightly bulge.
As far as simplicity, looks, and accuracy go, you can’t beat the Fitbit brand. Within the last year, the company has released their latest model, the Fitbit Surge, complete with comprehensive fitness tracking, GPS tracker, caller ID, and music control all on one.
Smart watches aren’t the only type of coveted wearable technology to emerge over the last year. There is also a brand new motorcycle helmet on the market that acts like the technology you see in Iron Man. Skully’s AR1 motorcycle helmet takes the best features of Google Glass and puts them into a helmet that’s equipped with heads-up display, rearview camera, and GPS navigation. You also have voice control for your music and phone. This product is meant to be released in July or August, but is available for pre-order now.
The Apple Watch is a beautifully constructed, compact smartwatch. It’s feature-packed, with solid fitness software, hundreds of apps, and the ability to send and receive calls via an iPhone. Apple fans have been waiting with baited breath, and finally the Apple Smart Watch is here. It came out in online stores in April, and is set to hit stores in America and parts of the United Kingdom in early June. It’s also supposed to be available in Italy, Mexico, South Korea, Spain, and Taiwan, starting June 26. The extremely attractive product is basically an iPhone on your wrist.
Virtual reality is here with the new Samsung Gear VR, which hooks to your Smartphone and allows you to entire a world of mobile simulation. This goggle-like headset allows you to attach your Smartphone and enjoy movies, music, stunning scenery, games, and more from wherever you are. It’s only compatible with the Samsung Note 4, but there’s a VR Innovator Edition that works with the Galaxy S6.
Pebble kicked off the Smartwatch category—and with the Apple Watch looming, it’s not backing down from the fight. The company unveiled its next-generation product, which includes a color screen, thinner design and microphone, allowing you to interact vocally with the device. Pebble Time is compatible with the more than 6,500 apps that exist for the current Pebble Watch
This version of the Pebble line smart watches was released in January and features both an impressive cosmetic and tech upgrade from the original 2013 model. The Pebble Steel features a large display and a stylish design.
Everything in technology is turning into intelligent gadgets, and wearable tech gadgets are some of the most popular. These smarter technologies can do anything from telling time to alerting you of potential injury, and they’re hot commodities in the technology world. However, that doesn’t mean that they are all good quality. Even though there are hundreds of wearable devices on the market, many of them are inaccurate and not worth the price. Try To do enough research before you spend your money on them.
