Wearables – Mostly Wristbands
Technology that you can wear (wearables – good name, right?) is going to become ever more prevalent in 2015. But what’s available right now is mostly wristbands – wristbands that can monitor your health and environment. Right now, the key benefit of most of these wristbands is to help improve your health by tracking how much you move, eat, and sleep.
They can tell you if you need to sleep more, exercise more, how many calories you ate, and all sorts of other useful information. And you can see all this information at any time on your smartphone. So you essentially have a live data feed of the goings on of your body – how cool is that? You can buy wearable wristbands and other wearables from companies such as Fitbit, Sony, Jawbone, and Atlas Wearables. There’s plenty of choice for under $100.
