In Part 2 of this two-part series on the rising mobile and wearable space, we explore eight interesting initiatives - wearables and mobile applications that are changing the lives of consumers as well as modern business
Wearable tech is the buzz word of 2015, and rightly so.
The fairly new landscape of wearable technology is already dotted with promising prospects. Emerging trends and innovations are paving the way for a more connected, seamless and integrated world. Smartwatches, fitness trackers and wristbands that monitor overall health are quite commonplace today, and are increasingly becoming a part of people’s everyday lives.
One of the reasons wearables are rising in popularity and preference is their association with mobile phones and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Most wearables, for optimal functionality, require a corresponding mobile app. This close relationship with mobiles makes wearable tech much more accessible and desirable to people. Wearables allow people to know themselves better – by providing insights into their daily habits and activities.
