5 Most Exciting Wearable Tech Devices and Apps of 2017

by 24th July, 2017

The mobile technological world is more exciting than ever, with companies inventing mobile, internet-connected devices that are improving lives in a myriad of ways. One realm that has taken off is the wearable tech world. There are countless wearable tech devices today that are paired with mobile apps that make life easier, more comfortable and more fun. Here are five of the most exciting wearable tech devices that are available this year.

Myontec Mbody Connected Shorts

For runners who always thought they’d have to wear a heart rate monitor on their wrist, something exciting has arrived. Myontec, a wearable tech company, has created smart shorts, which can track electrical signals from your leg muscles as you move. The Myontec shorts can also track heart rate and cadence and, via an app, provide insight into how each muscle is performing on each leg. Athletes can use the smart shorts to analyse and then improve performance.

Ringly Smart Ring

This year, Ringly, a smart jewelry company, has made their smart ring available. The ring, which is stylish and looks like a regular piece of jewellery, tracks activity and records it via an app. The ring counts steps, measures distance moved and tells how many calories a person has burned. The ring also alerts people to when they are getting a phone call or message, and it is water-resistant so it can be worn all day.

Fitbit Alta HR

The Fitbit fitness tracker has been around for quite some time. However, this year, the company is coming out with an even more exciting product: the Fitbit Alta HR – a fitness tracker that is designed to do more than just track things like steps taken and distance moved. People can use Alta HR to track and improve their sleep habits. The device was created in conjunction with sleep experts at Johns Hopkins University, and it can detect what stage of sleep a person is in (and for how long). The Alta HR, in addition to doing all of the other normal fitness tracker things, can tell wearers how long they were in deep sleep and REM sleep through the night. The app can also offer helpful advice via the app so that a user can try to improve their sleep.

NFC Ring

The NFC Ring is a wearable tech device that people can wear on their finger, then use for payments. The NFC ring uses Near Field Communication to power devices that also have NFC technology. Rather than take out their credit card, ring wearers can simply tap an NFC device to pay. They can also use the ring to lock and unlock doors, access apps on their phone, and more. The NFC ring is water resistant, and its matching app securely stores personal and payment info for convenience.

LVL

LVL is a wearable hydration monitor that can help people ensure that they’re drinking enough water. People wear LVL on their wrist and the device measures their hydration, heart rate and activity. The device can prompt wearers in real-time to drink more fluid, and it keeps records of people’s activity and health in a paired app. By inputting their moods into LVL’s app, LVL can also learn to predict how well a person will sleep and how their hydration levels will affect future moods.
