OK~ 2015 is an exciting year when it comes to wearable technology to improve your life. It's no secret that smart phones are changing how we all live. U.S. Cellular recently surveyed some people in regards to how often they check their mobile devices. They found that 63 percent of smart phone owners check their devices every hour, how do you compare? So this brings up the option of, why not wear your smart phone on your wrist?
The new AppleiWatch is Apple's first wearable gadget that allows users to access emails, texts, social media updates, apps, navigation, Siri and more right from your wrist. Wearing this device means users won't have to constantly take out their iPhone 6 to check notifictions. It also features health sensors and notifications for easy, hands-free fitness tracking. This iPhone- compatible watch works seamlessly with iOS8 devices, and will be available in early 2015.
The Moto 360 Motorola is bringing functionality to the wearers' wrists with this new device.
They are available with leather or stainless steel bands and a Corning® glass face to help with scratches. With the Moto 360 you can take hands-free calls, listen to music, track mileage, take pictures and videos, and check your texts, emails and social media.
If you happen to be a fitness enthusiast, the Polar Loop Fitness Band for Apple is another hot item for 2015!
You can use this custom fit device for 24/7 tracking of daily activities such as calories burned, steps taken and even sleep cycles. This device gives great feedback on daily, weekly and monthly goals. This device is water resistant so it is suitable for swimming as well. It is also compatible with Polar H6 and H7 Bluetooth Smart® heart rate sensors.
2015 looks to be an exciting time in the world of cellular phones and technology. The days of checking our smart phones while in our hands looks to be changing. I'm not sure if I'm ready to wear my phone on my wrist, are you?
