Wearable technology generally functions by measuring a user's vitals, but the Aircon watch is a particularly interesting wearable as it can actually alter a user's vitals. Essentially, the Aircon watch tricks users' brains into making them feel cold or warm based on the temperature of the environment they are in. The technology-driving this piece of tech previously saw use in military applications, but this design is the first to be applied to a consumer market.

The core functions of the Aircon watch come from a special component housing Aircon's ClimaCon technology. This component is held up to the user's wrist via the strap and is capable of sending signals to the nervous system, giving the effect of warm or cold.
