Wearable tech has been making an impact upon the fashion industry since the first smartwatches became available more than ten years ago. Of course, a host of innovations have now enabled these gadgets to offer a host of benefits that would have been nearly impossible in the past. Many devices are likewise quite affordable; opening up a host of possibilities if you wish to remain one step ahead of the curve. Let us therefore take a quick look at some of the most popular items to consider in 2020 as well as what each has in store.

All About the Digital Edge

Many items are focused upon health and fitness concerns. This is the reason why brands such as Garmin and Apple have sought to capitalise upon such a trend through the use of wearable technology. For instance, there are now many fitness trackers which can be employed to measure variables such as your heartbeat, how many steps you take throughout the day or the distance that you choose to run. These are all great ways to set personal goals as well as to appreciate how a specific exercise programme is progressing.

However, there are also gadgets which can be worn during the overnight hours. These trackers will provide you with information such as how many REM cycles occur and your average breathing rate. Some devices are even able to measure your blood oxygen content in order to determine if you might be suffering from an underlying disorder such as obstructive sleep apnea. Regardless of the reasons why you may choose to employ such gadgets while resting, there is no doubt that they are able to offer up a host of health benefits.

Keeping the Latest Trends “In Sight”

Many experts will argue that the introduction of Google Glass in 2014 ushered in the era of hands-free Internet access. However, the only issue was that Google Glass suffered from a number of bugs and a hefty price tag was hardly agreeable to those on a budget. Newer iterations such as the Golden-i and the Microsoft HoloLens are much cheaper and their functionality has been vastly improved. While these units might not have made a massive impact upon the general public, experts agree that their presence is expected to increase in the near future.

Other options such as glasses designed to block the hazardous blue light emitted from laptop screens are just as relevant, as these can be employed by those who spend long hours interacting with the digital community. Quality firms such as barnerbrand.com produce a wide range of styles for both men and women. Not only can consumers protect their eyesight, but they can enjoy a highly fashionable edge while in the office or when out and about.

Wearable technology has come a long way in recent times and we are only now beginning to appreciate the possibilities. It will be very interesting to see what other gadgets emerge into the future as well as the impacts that they may have.
