Wearable Technology | Wearables

Wearables, or wearable technology, are devices worn as accessories or implanted within the body or clothing to monitor and augment our experiences. Since they are smart, wearables can communicate with other devices or different people via the Internet with no human input. Today, wearable technology has very many applications and you will find their usage in consumer electronics such as smartwatches and trackers, in healthcare, navigation systems, and in fashion technology as smart fabrics to amplify and customize apparel. With the growth and development in global mobile networks, manufacturing, and software around the world, affordable wearables have led to an explosion in fashion technology. Though wearables are important on their own, their main function is to enhance the usage of other primary devices through collecting data and augmenting decision making.

When did wearable technology start?
