Wearable technology is related to both ubiquitous computing and the history and development of wearable computers. Wearables make technology pervasive by interweaving it into daily life. Through the history and development of wearable computing, pioneers have attempted to enhance or extend the functionality of clothing, or to create wearables as accessories able to provide users with sousvellience—the recording of an activity typically by way of small wearable or portable personal technologies. Tracking information like movement, steps and heart rate are all part of the quantified self movement.
The origins of wearable technology are influenced by both of these responses to the vision of ubiquitous computing.One early piece of widely adopted wearable technology was the calculator watch, introduced in the 1980’s. An even earlier wearable technology was the hearing aid.
Wearable electronics/ Wearable devices are smart electronic devices which are worn on the body as an implant or accessory. They are meant to be portable and help in making one’s day to day activities easier. They can either monitor, track, act as a media device etc. They are mainly divided into two main categories-
- personal usage
- business usage
Wearable devices are rapidly advancing in terms of technology, functionality, and size, with more real-time applications.Hence, with our website we aim to provide information related to the advancements in wearable technology, upcoming wearable gadgets, conferences and events related to this field.
