Five Wearable Technologies You Can Get Today

With so many wonderful things in production, many people have asked if there are any good wearable technologies that are available right now.  Here is my list of 5 things that are worth a second look.

 

  1. Fitbit

Fitbit has a variety of fitness bands now available at prices ranging from around $60.00 for the Fitbit Zip to $195.99 for their latest release the Fitbit Charge HR.

The Charge HR continuously monitors the heart rate of the wearer and tracks data throughout the day.

The devices will connect to over 120 different smartphones and devices, they sync wirelessly and automatically.  Like many other fitness bands, they are working with designers to make the fitness band something people actually want to wear.

I think it is one of the best fitness band for the price.  The app is great, allowing users to create challenges with friends to stay motivated throughout the day.   Fitbit bands do more than track activities.  The Fitbit sleep tracker shows sleep patterns, logging when you are restless and awake throughout the night.  Click Here to see on Amazon or Click Here to see on fitbit.com

 

  1. Rusty’s Wired Series

Rusty’s Wired Hoodies – These have built in speakers that are washable.  Some styles such as the Avalanche and Blizzard have earbuds that double as the strings of the hood, again washable.

Another smartwatch worth taking a look at is the Samsung Gear Live.  The Gear Live is compatible with any JellyBean, Android 4.3 or higher device, so you don’t have to have a Samsung phone for this to work.
