17 Advanced Wearable Technologies

From Minimal Hybrid Watches to Wearable Necklace Speakers

— January 11, 2018 — Fashion
Technology is constantly increasing in accessibility, and wearable technologies have even blurred the lines between the digital and fashion worlds. There have been many ways that companies have bridged the gap between fashion and technology, and these everyday accessories are much more than they appear to be at first glance. With integrated tech features, every item functions as much more than an adornment and works to make the lives of users more convenient. Examples include health devices, GPS-embedded jewelry pieces or items that allow for Bluetooth connectivity.

Ranging from smart watches, e-touch hand gloves, necklaces, utility glasses, and even rings, these accessories illustrate how the possibilities of technological implementation are constantly growing.

Blending into any outfit, the wearable technologies assist in providing convenience and even aid or predict health issues.
