There are plenty of interesting wearable devices scheduled to be released this year, and quite a few are sure to make the headlines.
Let’s take a look at some:
This very interesting smartwatch was the 10th most-funded Kickstarter project last year. It’s compatible with both iOS and Android, and comes with a few useful apps like a heart rate monitor and fingerprint ID. The most impressive part is, there’s going to be a range of modules in the form of watch strap links, which allow you to upgrade the device.
Under Armour wearables
The popular sportswear brand partnered with HTC and Grip last year, and created the largest online fitness community by acquiring three huge platforms: MyFitnessPal, Endomondo, and MapMyFitness.
By utilizing its large online base combined with their lineup of apps, Under Armour is poised to redefine sports wearables this year.
The Chinese wearable brand was very popular last year, and was second only to Fitbit in terms of sales.
This year looks to be a big one for the company, with products like the Mi Band 1S, the Amazefit tracker, and possibly their first ever smartwatch.
Fitbit may have had the biggest-selling wearable in 2015, but they’re facing tougher competition this year, with innovative and more affordable devices from Xiaomi and Moov.
The company announced that their newest products will feature more advanced sensors that can detect things like blood pressure and stress levels. However Fitbit’s new software improvements may be their biggest advantage, with better insights from gathered data and smart coaching advice.
Many people were disappointed at the high $600 price tag of the Oculus Rift, but that won’t stop the rise of VR technology in 2016.
With devices like the PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, Razer OSVR and more, VR is shaping up to be one of the biggest game changers in technology. These new devices are set to revolutionize the way we interact, watch movies, play games, and much more.
