The newest smartwatches and activity trackers will help you monitor your vital signs, track your activities, and keep tabs on your overall health. Many of these devices will also be connected to an app to provide real-time health reports. These devices can also be used by athletes to monitor their performance and health. Some are even designed to prevent injuries. While they are a little pricey, they are certainly worth it.
As soft electronics become more sophisticated, wearable devices will become thinner and more fashionable. They will even be able to track vital statistics without the help of a screen. Some smart watches may also incorporate a watch face instead of a screen. Others will be safety wearables that can send emergency alerts. However, many wearables will have limited battery life and will require Internet connectivity. Because of this, some developers are looking for alternative power sources. Solar energy and body heat are both potential power sources, and movement can also be converted into power.
Button technology is about to undergo a major transformation. In the near future, buttons will have embedded GPS that will track your movement and learn your habits. This will allow the device to react to your location and suggest the next steps you should take. In case you get lost, your button will be able to call 911 for help or contact your family. This will help keep you safe in dangerous situations. Buttons are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to wearable tech.
