From Sweat-Powered Wearables to Responsive Bike Helmets

 - Aug 27, 2017
Whether it is sweat-powered wearables or bike helmets that respond to body movements, the August 2017 gadget trends reveal a host of new tech products for consumers on the move.

As the fitness industry continues to expand, so too does the number of smart exercise accessories. One of these high-tech fitness products is a device currently being developed by researchers at the University of California, which converts the lactic acid found in sweat into fuel for wearable tech accessories. Another example is the new ECG-Guard Wearable Health Monitor, which can be worn during workouts to track the wearer's heart heath.

Beyond wearables, the August 2017 gadget trends also reveal a strong demand for tech-focused bike accessories. This is largely due to the rise in cycling as a more affordable, convenient and eco-friendly form of transport in urban centers. Some of these innovative bike accessories include the responsive Classon Helmet, the ultra-bright Fire Cannon cyclist light and the Killswitch suspension-locking tool.
