The wearable technology movement has continued to gain speed over the years leaving many customers with options for home use, bring your own device, and even exercise. Being able to reap the benefits of wearable technology at home or in the workplace has changed the shape of how we access customer information or track our fitness and well being.
One in ten U.S. adults now owns a fitness tracker, according to the latest results by NPD Group’s recent Connected Intelligent Consumers and Wearables report. Starting in 2015 the revenue that wearable technology will gain over the next five years is predicted to raise 40-percent as consumers switch from tablet and mobile devices to smaller wearable technologies that can provide the same apps.
Wireless carriers and smartphone companies are even jumping on the bandwagon of wearable technology as it picks up traction to help compliment their mobile devices and data streaming services. Some devices can connect directly with smartphones, cars, or even healthcare monitors.
These smart wristbands and associated services are helping users stay connected with their health and fitness.
The latest wave of new wristbands was introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show 2015 in January including the Misfit Shine, Lenovo Vibe Band VB10, E Fun NextOne, Healbe GoBe, and the Nabu Razer X. Find below a comprehensive list of new smart wristbands.
