We live in an age when technology is advancing at a mind-blowing pace.

In recent years we’ve seen the development of countless wearable technology devices. With the wearable tech market forecasted to reach a jaw-dropping $34 billion by 2020, we are sure to see many more new devices in the future.

Many people are discovering that wearable tech offers them some remarkable benefits.

Here are 7 ways wearable tech can make your life a little better:

#1 It Can Get You Into Great Shape

Fitness trackers have come more into the mainstream recently. Devices like the ones in Jawbone’s UP line are helping people everywhere to reach their fitness goals.

Fitness trackers help you track your activities and count how many calories you’ve burned. They can even monitor how well you’re sleeping.

You can measure your progress and conquer your fitness goals.

#2 It Can Connect You to Friends and Family

Smartwatches have started to see remarkable acceptance in the marketplace. The Apple Watch in particular has become wildly popular.

You can receive mail or text notifications on your wrist. You can also answer phone calls without pulling your phone out of your pocket.

You will be delighted by the ease with which you can stay connected to friends and family.

#3 It Can Help You to Manage Your Mood

There are some companies that are so innovative they’ve created their own categories of wearable tech products. Thync is one such company.

They have developed a device that you can wear on your head. It signals nerves on your head and neck to create altered mood states.

This amazing technology is helping people to feel enhanced energy so they can conquer their day.

#4 It Can Entertain You in New Ways

Virtual reality gaming has arrived. The Oculus Rift is leading the way.

This spectacular device allows users to not only play video games, but also immerse themselves inside of them. The device is worn on your head and it gives you a 360-degree experience of the game you’re playing.


#5 It Can Keep Your Feet Warm

One of the main reasons people use wearable technology is for tracking. People track their steps and count the calories they are burning.

The Digitsole insoles can do those things. But these shoe inserts also have another function. They keep your feet warm.

Keep your feet happy by monitoring their temperature on your smartphone. Then you can adjust the temperature inside your shoes during those cold winter months.
