Wearable technology has become somewhat of a hot topic in the technology industry. This is not just because they are nifty little gadgets, which are easily accessible but also because of the wide impact, which it can have on both personal lives as well as for businesses.
Many compare wearable technology to the revolution, which smartphones introduced into modern society. Nowadays, it is impossible to not go one day without seeing a useful implementation of a smartphone.
Although it is true that this has annoyed many as some seem to be addicted to their screens. It is beyond any doubt, however, that these devices are instrumentally useful in our everyday lives and many believe that soon the same will be evident for wearable technology devices.
Impact that wearable technology will have on a personal level
Wearable technology and various features it includes such as artificial intelligence features can be expected to somewhat revolutionize the way that we can go about our everyday lives and chores.
For example, don’t want to miss a thing that goes on during an event simply use Google Glass, which can take a picture every 30 seconds and capture vital moments, which previously would not have been possible.
The only limitation that wearable technology has when it comes to improvement of everyday lives is simply the creativity of the manufacturer. There are also long-term impacts, which can only be beneficial for users.
For example, a wearable technology which is integrated for health reasons, such as vital trackers may soon lead to you paying less for that heavy insurance bill each month. The reason behind this is due to the array of information, which insurers will be able to access, which can be used to better determine the risk that you as an individual pose.
The impact of wearable technology on our personal lives is instrumental. However, this is not where this technology is halted. Rather this is just the beginning of a revolution, which can instrumentally play a role in the improvement of modern society.
The impact that wearable technology can have on your business
Now, this is where people often tend to get speculative. After all, how can a fitness tracker change the entire way in which your business is run? Well, the simple answer is that it cannot. However, what people don’t realize is that wearable technology is not limited to merely being vital readers.
Wearable devices, which can extend to smart watches, glasses and a few other useful tools can be implemented into company’s production lines and even into administration work. A recent survey in U.K illustrated that employees who were being monitored through wearable tech were 8.5 percent more productive.
This may seem to be a small number. Although, when you think of it imagine the difference that 8.5 % can have on the infrastructure of a business, of the economy, and of course, on the world as a whole.
The only obstacles that businesses face are learning how to properly implement this technology into the everyday lives of their employees. Although this technology is still under heavy development, it is impossible not to be excited over what potential benefits may be unlocked.
