As technology becomes smaller, smarter and integrated into everything, wearing it has become a social standard. Wearables have become increasingly popular over the past few years. They can actually connect with your existing devices, like computers and smartphones, which means they can do a lot of interesting things. Smart wearable technology is transforming in a way that can suit your sense of style while truly making a difference to your everyday life.
Before you consider getting a smart wearable, one of the first questions you need to ask yourself is, "Why do you want to secure a wearable device?" is it for fitness? To keep track of your chats, calls and other notifications? Or to experience a virtual reality. Whether it’s smart watches, fitness trackers or a VR headset, you’ll find a product that can help you stay in vogue as well as on target to achieve your goals.
If you have a smartphone, you're probably used to receiving a lot of different notifications, like emails, text messages, and phone calls. But if you don't like looking at your phone throughout the day, a smartwatch may be able to help. These devices can be synced with your smartphone, which allows you to see notifications on your wrist at a glance, answer calls, issue voice commands, get directions and keep up to speed with everything you love without having to take your smartphone out of your pocket. Most smartwatches can also be used as simple fitness trackers. smartwatches aren't really focused on measuring data. A smart watch changes the way you interact with your smartphone such that, you get notifications to your watch, make and receive calls and much more.
Smart Fitness Watches/Fitness trackers:
Smart fitness watches give you an insight into your daily routine and your exercise regime, they are all about helping to get you moving. These devices can help you get a better understanding of your daily activity. They can track the number of steps you take, your average heart rate, how long you sleep, and more. This data can then be synced with another device (smart phone or computer), which allows you to see trends and patterns in your activity. For example, you could find out how far you've walked over the past week or estimate how many calories you've burned in a day.
Fitness watches keep the focus on staying active, some of them are also packed with great tech features like text and call notifications or even GPS. Which gives you a smart watch and GPS sport watch all in one. Fitness watches are designed to be discreet so you can wear them 24/7. This enables you to monitor info from steps taken to sleep levels so you gain an insight into your routine.
GPS sports watch:
There is a difference between an activity tracker and a GPS sports watch. Although, the newer GPS sport watches are starting to add in activity tracking for the other 23 hours of the day you are not working out in order to provide you with a single wrist-mounted device to do it all.
All GPS sports watches capture GPS data while there is some variance in a devices ability to measure cadence, stride length, running index, intervals, laps, heart rate zones, altitude, temperature, and much more. Each manufacturer has dedicated websites where you can log in and view all the fine details of the data captured by your GPS watch so look around and see which matches your needs best.
If you don't run, cycle, swim, hike, or get outside and exercise then you can skip looking at a GPS sports watch. If you do participate in outdoor sports and want to track the details of your workout, then you need to decide which sport(s) you want to track as that will quickly narrow your focus.
Virtual reality headsets:
Virtual reality is a computer-generated environment that lets you experience a different reality. A VR headset fits around your head and over your eyes, and visually separates you from whatever space you're physically occupying. Images are fed to your eyes from two small lenses.
Through VR you can virtually hike the Grand Canyon, tour the Louvre, experience a movie as if you are part of it, and immerse yourself in a video game without leaving your couch. Virtual reality is the next big thing in technology.
