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.
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.

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.
The pocket has a jack to plug in to your device. (Washable) As you can tell, I love the washable side of this product.

- Pebble Steel
While the world is waiting for the iWatch to hit the market, there are several smartwatches already available that are worth looking at. One of these is the Pebble Steel.
The Pebble Steel allows you to read texts and email on your wrist. You can answer incoming calls check calendars and there are thousands of apps and watch faces to customize the Pebble Steel. One huge plus is the battery lasts 5-7 days, much longer that the iWatch which is projected to last less than a day. It is also waterproof up to about 165 feet.

- Samsung Gear Live
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.
Your Android apps will display on the screen. It is also waterproof and lots of apps are available. Downside, the battery only lasts one day. The screen is always on(eating up that battery) and is really bright and easily visible in both dark and light. Cost – $199.99 Click Here to see on Amazon
