Top five wearable tech items for 2016
With Smartphones reaching the pinnacle of their current abilities, the rate of innovation in the mobile phone market seems to be slowing, for now at least.
Though the handsets that are due to be released this year do show improvements and innovations, there probably won’t be a big breakthrough in the world of smartphones for a few years yet.
Wearable tech however is very much on the up. Designs are becoming cleverer, more streamlined and more stylish, giving tech fans a fantastic selection of gadgets and gizmos to choose from.
Due to be released in late 2016, Kakoon headphones are the perfect piece of wearable tech for anyone who has trouble sleeping. Using unique audio tracks and special sleep sensors, the headphones help you to gently drop off, ensuring that the audio is continually adjusted so you’re not disturbed.
In the morning, the headphones use their special sleep tracker to wake you up at the perfect point in your sleep cycle, leaving you refreshed, rejuvenated and ready for the coming day.
If you want your pet to enjoy the benefits of wearable tech, this smart collar is perfect. The collar’s GPS tracker will help you find your pet if it gets lost, while the activity monitor will ensure your pooch gets enough exercise during the day.
If you’re struggling to stick to your New Year’s fitness resolutions, investing in a FitBit Flex could help you get your exercise regime back on track. By turning fitness into a game that works around your daily routines, the device helps you to get fit without ever setting foot in a gym.
The best piece of wearable tech for swimming enthusiasts, the Xmetrics box sits on the back of the swimmer’s head to monitor their performance.
The device tracks kick-turn time, breath count, stroke efficiency and much more, feeding the information back to the swimmer in real time. Perfect for anyone who wants to improve their swimming performance, Xmetrics will have you in tiptop condition in no time.
The ultimate in augmented reality, the Microsoft HoloLens will be hitting the market later in the year. Though the initial price tag is set to be eye-watering, the device will change the world around us like never before.
