The benefits of wearable technology

The benefits of wearable technology

There's no doubt that we live in a digital age, in which purchases are processed at the touch of a fingerprint, text messages are delivered to our watches, and are home sound-systems are controlled by the sound of our voice. And while much is said about the pitfalls of our growing addiction to all things electronic, there too are a wealth of benefits, particularly when it comes to wearable technology.

The benefits of wearable technology

From smart watches to safety trackers, we look at the advantages of wearable technology, and how we can harness them for our own health and wellbeing.

Convenience

There’s little doubt that with the advancement of technology comes a huge increase in convenience for anyone who opts for wearable technology. While in years gone by popping out of the house to grab a coffee would have involved everything from a fitbit to a phone and wallet, these days you can pay, listen to music and measure your steps all on the same device.

Safety

The safety aspect to wearable technology is an integral benefit of the advancement of electronics, and it’s certainly true that some state-of-the-art wearables are potentially life-saving. Most of them work by sending a notification to your next of kin as soon as you press a button, while some of them can even call the police on your behalf, without you needing to have a phone in your hand.

Health and wellbeing

Few could dispute the fact that wearable technology often inspires a healthier life. Via wearable technology, you can do everything from monitoring your heart rate to keeping track of your menstrual cycle and tracking your step count – all of which give wearers the ability and know-how to increase their levels of health and well-being.

Fitness

A wide variety of wellness apps and mobile health monitors are empowering individuals to monitor and analyze key health indicators like heart rate and activity and stress levels, and by promoting healthier lifestyle options, many are inspired to make healthier lifestyle choices. The innovative way self-tracking devices monitor not only an individual’s fitness journey, but overall health concerns such as sleep and diet are certainly shaking up the healthcare industry and by providing people with a more personal experience in terms of fitness and diet, there’s little question over the fitness benefits of wearable technology.
