In the past, wristbands consisted of rubber bands and simple trinkets to spice up an outfit or show support for a certain cause. Now, these arm accessories have been upgraded to include the latest tech developments to turn an average band into a helpful gadget. The Wristband Trend Report dives into how consumers are responding to these developments, and provides inspiration for businesses in this industry.

These developments vary, from bands that track sugar levels of diabetics to flash drive wristbands to allow users to transport information wherever they go. The main improvement to many of these accessories is the fusion of technology with fashion statements. This provides users with a sense of ease, and allows many to have a certain convenience not available a few years ago.
