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?

Wearable technology began with the watch and it was worn by people to help tell time. Watches were created in 1500 by Peter Henlein and were originally worn as necklaces. Throughout history various wearable technology has been developed in efforts to make the life of the user more efficient and continues to be incorporated into daily life.

Why is wearable technology important?

Wearable technology is important because it allows users to monitor their fitness levels, track their location through GPS, and view text messages more quickly and efficiently. Wearable technology is also hands-free, portable, can connect to other smart devices sending information to them that users can then view at a later time.

How does wearable technology benefit your workout?

Wearable technology can benefit a workout by making group fitness more personal, creating more attainable health goals, and minimizing overtraining and potential injuries. Wearable technology can help the user monitor their heart rate, steps, and the amount of exercise they do during a workout.
