CONSUMER REPORTS: Wearable technology allows users to always be connected - October 26, 2014 The smartphone has integrated itself into our lives so thoroughly that many of us would feel naked leaving the house without it. Consumer Reports notes that a recent International Data Corp. survey of smartphone owners found that 79 percent keep their device with them for all but two of their waking hours. This near-obsessive need to stay connected is one of the drivers behind a new category of electronics, known collectively as wearables. This past spring, online retailer Amazon created a dedicated store for wearable tech. Google has launched a version of its mobile operating system called Android Wear to speed development of these products, and Apple recently launched its own health and fitness-oriented smart watch. One device seems to embody all of the potential of wearable electronics for both convenience and cyborglike strangeness.

Wearable Technology That Feels Like Skin Photo When it comes to the future of computing, there is one major known and a principal unknown. The known, with almost guaranteed certainty, is that the next era of computing will be wearables. Research and Markets: Global Gaming Wearable Technology Report 2014 Featuring Apple, Microsoft, Nike, Nintendo & Sony Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Wearable Technology in Gaming 2014" report to their offering. Wearable computing has a natural home in the world of gaming. Nintendo's Wii controller already has motion-sensors and it will not be long before more interactive gear, including clothing, become part of a video-game player's apparatus. Gaming in the future will be dominated by wearable devices that users can wear from head to foot.

Cisco Report Shows Small But Growing Wearable Market A new report from Cisco gives ammunition to the chattering masses who see wearable device technology as a niche market not capable of coming close to the popularity of smartphones anytime soon. We are seeing developments in the wearable technology market such as Samsung poised to release its Galaxy Gear, Google Glass soon becoming widely available and Apple rumored to be developing some kind of iWatch, with Apple execs even meeting recently with FDA officials to discuss “mobile medical applications.” A New York Times report suggested the meeting was part of Apple’s long interest in health-monitoring technology that could be part of the company’s rumored smartwatch. Among other Apple rumors, the company has a team of 200 working on its rumored smartwatch, and the FDA meeting was for Apple to make sure its new device won’t come into the FDA’s territory. Wearables were added to Cisco’s annual study of mobile traffic for the first time in 2013.

Nike and Apple working on ‘stylish’ new wearable technology Apple and Nike are working on new item of wearable technology that will have greater integration into existing gadgets, and is less obvious and more “stealth”, according to the Nike chief executive, Mark Parker. Nike has long been making wearable technology, originally partnering with Apple for its Nike+ running sensor range in 2006, which connected wirelessly to the iPod. Nike discontinued its FuelBand fitness-tracking bracelet in April, shutting down the team that made it, which saw two of its key engineers move to Apple to work on the Apple Watch. But Parker is still bullish on wearable technology as a key part of Nike’s future. “I think it’s going to be a big part of the future, absolutely,” said Parker in an interview with Bloomberg TV. “I think the form it takes is critical.

Wearable Technology, Soon In a Cabin Near You Wearable electronic devices are beginning to resemble a technology steamroller in the consumer market, and business aviation is already climbing aboard in an attempt to keep up. Honeywell Aerospace (Booth 2000) is developing its own variant of Google Glass with a hands-free device to make the job of the flight attendant more efficient by leveraging Honeywell’s existing Ovation Select cabin management technology. The device is now in prototype form and allows the flight attendant to manage virtually the entire cabin with just a few words here and there.
