Gaining the edge with wearable technology

Postby koimaster » October 6th 2016, 10:36am

If there’s one thing that fitness bands and smart watches are not, it’s discreet.

When you’re wearing one it’s blindingly obvious – which might have been the point when these devices first came out, and everyone rushed to be an early adopter. But now we’ve kind of gotten over that.

They’re handy, and useful, but have always seemed better paired with gym gear than a business suit. Now that wearable tech devices are evolving from lifestyle enhancer to useful tool, we’re bound to see more of them geared towards the corporate sector.

An obvious market niche lies in the fact that smart watches will never replace a dress watch in the well-groomed executive’s accessory wardrobe. A team of passionate German watch lovers agree, so they’ve come up with a band embedded with smart watch functionality – so you get to keep your favourite wristwatch, and have your health data tracked as well, in the one wearable wrist item. According to its web site, the Wotch e-strap will be launching soon.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
