Emerging trend_2018 – Wearable Devices and Apps:
Let’s first see the standard definition of wearable applications given by google.
Definition of ‘Wearable Technology‘: Wearable technology is a blanket term for electronics that can be worn on the body, either as an accessory or as part of material used in clothing. There are many types of wearable technology but some of the most popular devices are activity trackers and smartwatches.
First thing we remember while talking about wearable electronic is Watch, that may be smart watch like Fitbit, Apple watch, fitness trackers and many more.
Thinking of smart watch in my school days, I only remember a watch having calculator on it, or a watch which has date and time changing and displaying automatically; but trend has changed a lot now.
A smart watch can do lot more than it was doing before.
Let’s get into few Advantages of Wearable devices:
- Health trackers: First and fore most thing we get into our mind is health tracking
devices, which may be a mobile or wearable device which you can carry in that
span of time where you want to track your health.
Health doesn’t only mean tracking our footsteps, it also includes our intake of food (calories), calories we burn, and with just one tap devices can now know your blood
pressure and Diabetes even. According to the reports, suggestions are given by the app itself. You can also contact the concerned person through app itself.
- GPS: The number of people using GPS system is increasing day by day. As we know most of us will look for easy way of doing things. In the beginning, we used to select the places and search for directions. Then came a system of speech recognition; We can pronounce the place name and go for it, then came google assistant which makes our finding route easy by giving the directions by itself in a human voice.
Now it’s the time for next trending level. Just imagine a device you need not carry in your hand, need to put in bags and listening by using some ear phones which is of course not suggested in a heavy route, it will be giving you clear directions as you pass by, by showing you the directions in the simplest way it can as the screen will be small, without much mess it will show you crystal clear directions, you can even zoom in and out as if in a mobile device. In coming days it helps lot in tracking system.
Pay bills: In this emerging cashless world, by a single scan one can send or receive the money. Same thing can be done using a wearable device (say watch), life runs smoothly without any obstacles such as carrying cards, remembering pin. Biometric authentication can be done instead of pin numbers.
Gaming industry: Most trending industry which is getting loads of traffic irrespective of age group is gaming industry. It can be more fun and portable by playing in wearable apps.We enjoyed playing in big screens in desktops, later shifted to mobile and now it’s time to shift into small screens.
Transferring data : Of course we have WhatsApp, Facebook and many social media platforms for sharing files or information. But we still use Bluetooth and Share It for sharing files so that quality should not be missed while shifting platforms. We can make that work easier by using there wearable apps which would be more handy.
Style and updated: Last but never the least, it adds to your stylish look and you will
never miss even a notification when you are wearing it. We will place our phone aside but we will not take off wearable device, so we will be updated.
Now talking about Disadvantages of Wearable devices:
Battery: Of course it need to be charged periodically according to usage.
Can’t stand alone: I think you got with the title itself. Any smart watch must be connected with any device for sure like Bluetooth.
Health perspective: It’s a known fact that using mobile phones brings radiation effect on us. Not only that but we are hearing about phone blasts now and then too. A device which will be away from us with a little distance itself brings these negative effects on us; How much a device which will be worn on our body; sticked to us always…brings? Anyways if precautions are taken while developing the device, then this effect
may be reduced.
Everything has ups and downs for sure. What we take in matters. Here, how we use them matters in case of technology. For sure, Wearable apps are next trending to come up in everyone’s life style. It keeps a person updated without missing any important things to be done. What are you waiting for? Have an idea of an application that can be used in wearable apps?
