Wearable devices refer to electronic technologies or computers that are incorporated into items of clothing or accessories which can comfortably be worn on the body. Examples of wearable devices include wearable/body worn cameras,watches and bracelets. While the technology is in its infancy stage, analysts at Morgan Stanley project sales of wearable devices will grow at a 154-percent annual compound rate through 2017, where 248 million devices will be sold. The figure will grow even further where sales of wearable technologies will reach one billion in 2020.
Wearable technology has tremendous potential to impact the fields of health and fitness, as well as gaming and entertainment. Augmented reality and wearable technology can combine to create a much more realistic and immersive environment in real time. Wearable cameras are another device category that will enjoy rapid growth and impact our security, police, firefighting, and paramedic communities.
