Wearable technology is changing the concept of fitness

Wearables are creating a new world of feedback and instruction that could guide users to better health.

When it comes to the latest in consumer tech, smarthphones have become exceptionally commonplace, but it is wearable technology that is currently making some big waves in revolutionizing the industry.

These little devices are especially impactful in the areas of health and fitness, for a personalized experience.

At the moment, the most common forms of wearable technology for fitness and health have to do with providing wearers with a kind of monitor so that they can track their steps, calories burned, blood pressure, heart rate, sleep quality, and a number of other factors. However, there are wearables that will soon be on their way to market shelves that will also be offering their users personalized health and fitness tips, to take the feedback that they receive a step further and to give them some direction based on their current progress.

The current form of wearable technology for fitness and health is only a jumping off point for what is coming.

Wearable Technology Changing FitnessAccording to the University of Phoenix executive dean at the college of information systems and technology, Dennis Bonilla, who was also once the vice president at Oracle, a smartwatch and fitness band may seem to be impressive with its helpful features, at the moment, but they are nothing compared to the tech that is on its way to the wearables industry.

Bonilla explained that “The wearable technologies we’re seeing on the market now are early, clunky versions of what’s coming soon.” He also added that “In the future, your smartwatch will instantly access your medical records, diet and training logs, then sync them with sensors in the supermarket and mll to provide real-time shopping and health advice.”

He discussed what we could expect from wearables such as smart shoes and smart clothing that could tell us how to walk and run with correct form to keep backs and knees from injury, when to hydrate, and will remind us to straighten up our posture. Smart bandages will even be able to warn diabetics about low blood sugar.

The wearable technology future is speeding toward the industry at an exceptionally rapid rate with an increasing number of the next gen of gadgets already starting to be unveiled and even become available for purchase.

Wearable technology brings uncertainty to American consumers

A recent survey in the United States has shown that many people don’t have a high opinion of the devices.

Following an exciting single day of the sales of Google Glass a recent survey of people in the United States has shown that many people feel that wearable technology is actually doing more harm than good.

In fact, 53 percent of the respondents felt that these devices will actually be damaging to society.

The poll showed that many Americans feel a great deal of uncertainty when it comes to Google Glass and other forms of wearable technology. These results were released at a time in which industry giants are working very hard to boost the popularity of these devices. Google and Intel are both pouring a tremendous amount of energy and resources into developing wearables such as augmented reality glasses and smartwatches, among others.

This new survey says 53 percent of Americans fear that wearable technology will make society worse.

The survey asked Americans about their feelings on wearables that could range from mobile devices worn on the body to chips that are implanted into the body. It was specific to the types of devices that continually provide the wearer with information about the world around them.American uncertain about wearable technolgy

There were about 1,000 respondents in this survey, among whom there were participants from every state. This poll was meant to obtain a better understanding of opinions on future technology. The Pew Internet Project published the results, which provided insight on predictions about long term human space colonies within the next half century and on whether or not people would feel confident being passengers in driverless vehicles. It also discussed products that are already on the market shelves, such as fitness trackers like Fitbit, or those that are nearly there but that are in the testing phase, such as Google Glass.

Only a handful of years ago, wearable technology would have seemed to be something more of science fiction than of reality. Even today, the tech is developing quickly enough that it continues to hold that type of association. Perhaps it is precisely that link that is causing people to wonder about the impact that these wearables will have on who we are.
