Moving beyond smartwatches that track only your fitness or sleep levels, some of the most impressive wearable tech at CES 2015 included smart thermometer patches for infants, virtual reality headphones and headsets capable of communicating via "telepathy." Worn as headpieces, wrist accessories, garments or even jewelry, wearable technology is becoming a natural extension of the body.

In terms of health and wellness, standout devices include Bloom, a fertility tracker for women, or Misfit's chic Swarovski Shine Collection, which also doubles as a way to track sleep cycles. Items like the Sensoria Smart Sock and Hexoskin's biometric shirts might not seem high-tech at all, but hidden in familiar forms, these wearable tech devices boast the ability to monitor your workouts.

In the automotive realm, there were also numerous products that debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show to make the lives of drivers a little bit easier. Some of these included the Audi smartwatch and the Hyundai Android Wear App.
