Smart Wearable Devices

Wearable electronic devices - smartwatches, smartglasses, headphones or smart textiles - have become a reality and a part of every day life. Wearers of a smartwatch can control many functions on their smartphones from the wrist. No need for them to get their smartphone out of their pocket to answer an incoming call or listen to messages, as voice control allows a number of actions to be performed via the watch. Fitness trackers measure the wearer's pulse, calories burnt and distance covered while he or she exercises, or can give them an impression of their running style. The data gathered allows users to track and develop their training. Smartglasses enable wearers to take photographs, navigate or perform an online search via voice control - provided they are connected to a smartphone. Information appears on a mini display within the line of sight of the wearer.
