Wearable Technology May Change Your Life

Wearable technology is advancing at a rapid pace. Modern wearable devices may not be anything to fawn over, but a new generation of these devices is dawning. Apple recently revealed its Watch device, which is equipped with more features than any other smartwatch. The device is quite similar to a conventional smartphone, but designed to be significantly more intuitive and cater to its user’s movements and gestures.

Many wearable devices that are available today are simply novelty. They offer nothing more than a relatively interesting experience that is very similar to what can be found on a smartphone or tablet. These devices are often designed to serve a very specific purpose, such as tracking a person’s heart rate during an exercise or offering an interactive entertainment experience. Augmented reality headsets are somewhat more valuable in terms of the features that they offer, but these devices are typically only used for entertainment or social media purposes.

Wearable tech could change livesCurrent wearable devices may be little more than a stepping stone toward something much greater. Wearables are still not very popular in any conventional market, but they have shown that people are interested in new technology that is much more than a smartphone. As wearable technology becomes more advanced, it will likely become more integrated with humanity, moving from novelty to necessity in much the same way other mobile devices have. Once that happens, such technology could have a major impact on society as a whole.

Integrated technology is not a new concept. There are already people with NFC chips implanted beneath their skin. These chips can be programmed to serve a variety of purposes, from accessing electronic locks to providing easily accessible information about a person. It may be years before someone has a smartphone installed in their body, but wearable technology is beginning to show that such a thing could be possible at some point in the future.

Apple watch, Apple Pay and iPhone 6 devices officially announced

Apple has unveiled its latest gadgets, which include new smartphones and a smartwatch.

The innovative electronics giant finally put rumors of it possibly announcing its very first smartwatch to rest on Tuesday, September 9 when it officially revealed its Apple Watch to an eager audience that filled the Flint Center in California and to millions of digital viewers around the world.

The new watch from Apple will be available in three styles.

There will be the standard Apple Watch, the 18k gold Watch Edition and the Watch Sport, which has been designed to be extra durable and light. The device will also have two different face sizes (1.5 inches and 1.65 inches). The two different sizes make Apple’s smartwatch unique from what is currently available on the market, as it allows consumers to choose a watch face that will be better suited to their wrist size.

In addition, consumers can choose from a variety of watch straps that differ in color and texture, which helps to make the watch even more customizable. However, beyond its aesthetic aspects and appeal, the wearable device features what the company calls a “digital crown”. This is a small dial on the side of the watch through which much of the interaction with the smartwatch occurs.

The digital crown enables the user to control certain functions on the screen so that they are not blocking their view of the display as they interact with the watch. For instance, users can use this feature to zoom in and out of a map.

Among other features, the watch also has fitness and health tracking capabilities.Apple Watch announced

In addition to the Apple Watch, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were unveiled.

The two new iPhones are larger (iPhone 6 has a 4.7 inch screen and iPhone 6 Plus has a 5.5 inch screen) and faster than Apple’s previous models and will have longer battery life. The camera has been improved, and users will be able to enjoy a horizontal view of the home screen. The iPhone 6 Plus screen resolution will be the sharpest of any iPhone previously released with 401 pixels per inch instead of 326.

Other features of the phones include the barometer, a new sensor that approximates not only how far a user has run or walked, but also how many stairs they’ve climbed. In addition, both phones will be equipped with Apple Pay, the company’s new mobile payments system.

The new iPhones are set to begin shipping in the U.S. on September 19. The starting price for the iPhone 6 is $199 (for 16 GB with a two year contract). Prices go up from there with the iPhone 6 Plus costing $100 extra on top of the iPhone 6 prices.

The Apple Watch is compatible with the new iPhones, as well as the iPhone 5, 5s and 5c. The starting price for the watch is $349.00 and will be made available for purchase in early 2015.
