What is the Wearable Interaction?
Wearables are electronic devices used on a person (usually close to the skin) to accurately transmit important medical, biological and exercise data to a database. Wearables have made the IoT industry the giant of almost a trillion dollars it is today. Your Apple Watch and Fitbit are classic examples of wearable technology, but these are not the only devices in development today. In addition to smart watches, VR and AR technology, smart jackets and a wide variety of other gadgets are leading us to a more connected lifestyle. The main task of each device is to collect millions of data points that vary from how many steps you take up to your heart rate. And it is a booming industry. In fact, the wearables industry is expected to inflate to an incredible €63 billion in 2025.
It seems that everything today is a “smart” device; Smart toasters. Smart dog collars. Smart houses. In the “smart” era, there is nothing smarter or more innovative than the devices produced by the wearable industry. These devices help to collect and analyze personal data in real time that inform us about everything from our health to our training. They have become extremely popular tools to help us keep informed and contact us to the point that one in three people in the United States now wears a wearable device.
