Wearable technology are clothing and accessories
incorporating computer and advanced electronic
technologies. The designs often incorporate practical
functions and features.
Worn by user - but are intended to interact with the wearer
without punching keys or other manipulation.
Wearable devices are a good example of the Internet of Things,
since they are a part of physical objects ("things“) embedded
with electronics, software, sensors and connectivity.
always on, always working.
The Wearable technology consists of two parts:
1. sensors, glasses, watches and even foot wear;
2. Information aggregator & analyser
Reasons for growth of Wearable
Internet traffic information.
Big data, Internet of things.
Reduced IT cost with cloud computing.

Fitness and Healthcare
Wearable Technology is being used to measure a lot of
health-related data, such as the step count, heart rate, Blood
Wearable technology has started to revolutionize healthcare
assisting doctors in the operating room; and
providing real time access to electronic health records.
Patients can now continuously monitor their own health.
The popular segment that combines information and
Includes the smartwatch and the smart glass.
A smartwatch is a computerized wristwatch with functionality
that is enhanced beyond timekeeping.
Modern smartwatches are effectively wearable computers.
Many run mobile apps, using a mobile OS.
Some smartwatches function as portable media players.
Some models, also called 'watch phones', feature full mobile
phone capability, and can make or answer phone calls.
Smart glasses is a wearable computer with an optical head
mounted display(OHMD) or computerized internet-connected
glasses with transparent heads-up display(HUD) or
Augmented Reality(AR) overlay that has the capability of
reflecting projected digital images as well as allowing the user
to see through it.
It is a virtual reality headset.
Among the first consumer-targeted VR headsets.
The Rift has an OLED display, a 1080p, or 1080×1200,
resolution per eye, a 90 Hz refresh rate, and 110° field of view.
It has integrated headphones which provide a 3D audio effect,
rotational and positional tracking.
The Rift can be used while sitting, standing or walking around.
Radically improved aiming capabilities.
Rifles that can track targets, detect wind and weather, and
calculate the optimal flight path for the bullet now exist.
Monitor physical state and injuries.
thumbnail-size sensors, attached to bandages, monitor a
user’s vitals such as heart rate, breathing, and hydration.
