Technology that is carried
The so-called wearables technologies are thin devices, elegantly designed to be used on the body, such as glasses, watches, bracelets or rings, some can be pasted on clothing or even stored in your pocket. Basically, they are so light that they do not feel like they are wearing them.
Smartbands (smart bracelets)
They are smart bracelets that include a wide variety of functions in interaction with your Smartphone. They can record your movements, your communications and your entertainment. These devices collect everything and allow you to see everything again another day of your life, you can see how you moved, what photos you took and how you communicated with the world.
Some models include microphones and sensors that allow you to initiate a call or record voice messages while you’re on the move. Other models such as the Sony Smartband 2 monitor heart activity during your daily activities and let you see which daytime activities make your heart more disturbing or which of your activities is more relaxed for your heart activity.
Smart watches are a category of wearable technology in full development, and are watches with functionalities that go beyond those of a conventional watch.
Intelligent clocks are now available on the market that connect to the Internet, allow you to make and receive phone calls, send and receive emails or text messages, receive notifications of the mobile and even consult social networks.
Smartwatch can include sensors such as accelerometer, speaker, microphone, gyroscope, compass, pulse meter, barometer, altimeter, geomagnetic meter, pulse meter, GPS barometer, etc. They also have connectivity mechanisms such as Bluetooth, NFC, WiFi, cellular networks or USB.
Smart lenses are lenses that are similar to mount lenses, but with features that include cloud connectivity, facial recognition, simultaneous real-time translation of foreign language menus, and face-to-face communication with enhanced reality support.
Facial recognition allows you to identify a person by just looking at his face through smart lenses. The captured image is compared to a database located in the cloud, and is displayed on the surface of the lenses, allowing the user to identify the person they are viewing.
Simultaneous real-time translation of menus in foreign languages allows the user to view a restaurant menu written in a foreign language, and read it translated into their mother tongue just by looking at it.
Smartrings (smart rings)
Smart rings are rings that are placed on your fingers like any ring, but they include a number of functions mostly related to your personal safety. For example, smart rings include a panic button, which sends alert signals if they are pressed for more than 3 seconds, and even activate a voice recording system that records evidence in case an alert is triggered.
The ring connects to a Bluetooth application that allows real-time tracking of the user’s location. And it also includes a robotic call option that locates the nearest 911 dispatcher. These rings run for two continuous weeks with a single charge.
Smartshoes (smart shoes)
A smartshoe, is a shoe that provides intelligent cushioning to auto-adjust automatically and continuously. It does this by detecting the level of damping, using a sensor and a magnet. The shoe understands if the damping level is too soft or too firm through a small computer and is fitted with a motor-driven cable system to provide correct damping during the stroke.
The current trend in the field of wearable tehnologies indicates that this technology covers a wide spectrum of devices, but all have in common their orientation to interact with smartphones and information in the cloud.
