What is the future of wearable technology?

Wearable technology is an undeniable trend and many brands such as Nike, Apple, Samsung and Google are all bringing out products to satisfy consumers growing awareness and demand for new products.

A lot recently has been publicised about smartwatches in particular due to the Samsung Galaxy Gear watch and the new Apple iWatch- does this mean the future of wearable technology is all about wrist based devices? Can wearable technology cross over from being an fashion accessory to being a functioning part of our everyday lives? What do you think will happen in the future of this industry?

  • Oct 25 2013: I'm already wearing the most advanced technology in this world, I would love to be able to download a complete user's guide but I have not found the website yet. It already works pretty well but I know it has many undiscovered apps and features I have never tried yet. Maybe you have it to and like me have never used it that much? Everybody should have and use this device.
