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?
