7 Pieces of Wearable Technology for 2015 ...

By Neecey

Look up trends for 2015 and one that crops up is wearable technology. Wearable gadgets aren’t new – we’ve seen an explosion in wearable fitness gadgets that monitor all sorts of things but how far are designers and techies taking this concept? What sort of wearable tech should we be looking at in 2015?

1 Up 24 by Jawbone

Up 24 by JawboneThis looks like a simple wearable band, but it is actually a sleep and exercise-tracking tool. It helps you track how well you sleep and how much exercise you do during the day. You can load its stats on to your Smartphone device or your computer, and is one of the most unassuming yet smart pieces of wearable technology for 2015. It can even communicate with you using vibrations. It is great as a silent vibrating alarm clock because it allows you to wake up without waking the one you are sleeping next to.

2 Pebble Steel Smart Watch for IPhone and Android Devices

Pebble Steel Smart Watch for IPhone and Android DevicesThis is a smart watch and is one of the first on the scene in terms of “new” smart watches. Sadly, it has the same problem that the soon-to-be-released Apple watch has and that is that people do not wear watches much anymore. People carry around their phone, so why bother with a watch? If you do want a smart watch, then this is not a bad choice. It is certainly more durable and tough than a Smartphone and it has plenty of fun functions. The only problem is that the charge lasts between five to seven days, which is a problem all smart watches have.

3 GoMotion Synergy Hydration LightVest

GoMotion Synergy Hydration LightVestGoing for a very long run? This may be the perfect piece of tech for you. It is a reflective vest; it has a light on the front with three settings and has lights on the back too. It holds fluid but holds it against your body in a more uniform manner than simply having a bottle strapped to you. It means you maintain your weight equilibrium. You can drink the water as you run via the attached tube.

4 Pivothead Video Recording Camera

Pivothead Video Recording CameraIts actual name is Pivothead 1080 HD 8MP Video Recording Camera Polarized Hands-Free Sunglasses. They are able to take videos, give you an in-screen display, capture sound and capture HD video. Its biggest problem is the same as with the Google version and that is that it needs recharging more often than your phone does. Otherwise, it is a great piece of tech for someone that has a lot of money to spend.

5 Westone 78400 Adventure Series Earphones

Westone 78400 Adventure Series EarphonesImagine what the Borg technology from Star Trek could do to a toaster, and you have an idea of what these earphones are all about.

6 Mio ALPHA 2 Heart Rate Monitor Sport Watch

Mio ALPHA 2 Heart Rate Monitor Sport WatchThis is similar to the health trackers you may see on this article, but it is built for people that want to check their heart rate in the moment and not when they are at home looking at charts. It also has an alarm on it that tells you when your heart has reached a certain rate. Not to put too fine a point on it, but it's the watch The Hulk wears! It is not the same brand because the movies never let on which brand, but it looks and acts like the watch Bruce Banner wears.

7 Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity + Sleep Wristband

Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity + Sleep WristbandThis is actually a lot like the jawbone in a lot of ways, but it is more for people that want to turn keeping fit into a game. Oddly enough, making keeping fit a game may be the perfect way to stay motivated. It works in conjunction with an app or computer to tell you how much exercise you have done, how well you have slept, and how much you have done compared to other days. It is as if you earn a certain score or have certain stats per day, and the wearable tech and reminds you to beat those stats. It is one of the most fun pieces of wearable technology for 2015 if you are looking to keep fit.
