Global Wearable Technology and IoT Wearable Device Market: Snapshot
The global wearable technology and IoT wearable device market is foretold to witness lucrative business prospects owing to the ever-increasing demand for wearable devices. Wearable technology includes smart electronic devices that can be worn on the body as accessories.
Wearable devices such as smart watches are a good example of Internet of Things. The application base of wearable technology is expanding with the expansion of the technology itself. Consumer electronics such as activity tracker and smart watch are some prominent examples of wearable technology. Apart from applications in consumer goods, wearable technology finds application in navigation systems, healthcare, and advanced textiles.
Wearable devices are gaining traction due to their capability of identification and security. For instance, badge worn at work places provide identification and security features that are useful for work environment. Wearable devices could even include biometric capabilities such as fingerprint identification to improve security of critical accounts. Badges could also include location sensing capabilities in the event of an emergency to prevent loss of life. A wearable bracelet is more reliable to obtain indication of location in the event of an emergency as it is less likely to be left in a jacket or in a handbag.
The capability of health and fitness centered wearable devices is expanding. The adoption of wearable devices for biometric readings such as heart rate, perspiration levels, to complex measurements such as level of oxygen in the bloodstream is leading to their increased availability. With further advancement in technology, wearable devices could even be used to detect alcohol levels or for some other similar measurements. The ability of wearable devices to sense, store, and track biometric values could be another interesting possibility of these devices.
Wearable technology is regularly made known as one of the best application of the (IOT) Internet of Things. The commodities that contain wearable innovation are called wearable. Wearable technology consists of applicationa which includes smart clothing, wearable cameras, smart glasses, wearable apps platforms, smart watches, activity trackers, and health & happiness wearable. Wearable technology represents clothing and individual accessories that integrate both computer and electronic technologies. Gadgets from Fitbit and its associated organizations enable individuals to track their exercise and health progress in before impossible ways. Smart watches bring the ability of smartphones specifically to the wearer's wrist. Wearable technology offers several benefits like gathering information of the buying behavior of a consumer with the help of smart glass, thereby reducing the cost incurred in performing statistical surveys. Moreover, integration of wearable technology in traditional business provides enhanced productivity and expanded work efficiency. Wearable hardware that shoppers can display on their bodies has potential to change the way of living. With the help of IOT, numerous wearable technologies and sensors are expected to help individuals to interact with other devices and wireless nodes around them.
