Wearable Technology and Wearable Devices: Everything You Need to Know
Everything You Need to Know Introduction to Wearable Technology What is Wearable Technology? What are Wearable Devices? The terms “wearable technology“, “wearable devices“, and “wearables” all refer to electronic technologies or computers that are incorporated into items of clothing and accessories which can comfortably be worn on the body. These wearable devices can perform many of the same computing tasks as mobile phones and laptop computers; however, in some cases, wearable technology can outperform these hand-held devices entirely. Generally, wearable technology will have some form of communications capability and will allow the wearer access to information in real time. While wearable technology tends to refer to items which can be put on and taken off with ease, there are more invasive versions of the concept as in the case of implanted devices such as micro-chips or even smart tattoos.
