Wearable device status and future development trend
The volume of cutting-edge global wearable devices has been reduced to 310 million units, an increase of 16.7% over the previous period, and the market is huge. With consumption upgrades and the continuous expansion of technologies such as AI, VR, and AR, wearable devices have moved from a single function in the past to a multi-function, and at the same time have the characteristics of being more portable and practical. Smart wearable devices have many developable applications in many fields such as healthcare, navigation, social networking, business, and media, and can bring changes to future life through applications in different scenarios.
At present, the main wearable products on the market have different forms, mainly including smart glasses, smart watches, smart bracelets, mind control, health wear, somatosensory control, and item tracking. Among them, medical and health, infotainment, sports, and health are hotspots; in terms of product functions, interconnection (NFC, Wifi, Bluetooth, wireless), man-machine interface (voice, somatosensory), sensing (bone sensing, face recognition, geographic positioning), All kinds of sensors) is an indispensable function of such products.
Smart wearable devices include smart watches, smart bracelets, 3D glasses, etc. Among them, smart watches are digital products that can be heated by the hand. The watch can be built with a smart system, equipped with a smart phone system, and connected to the network to achieve multi-functions. It can synchronize phone calls, text messages, emails, photos, music, etc. The intelligent system is a collection of application intelligence for a certain aspect, which is a collection of modern communication and information technology, computer network technology, industry technology, and intelligent control technology. The demand for wearable devices such as smart watches will increase. Sensors, optical fiber communications, touch panels, and other fields will gain profits, which will also drive the consumption growth of rare metal oxides, germanium, and gallium.
The development of wearable devices has great potential. The replacement of technology and commercial possibilities is beyond people’s imagination. Its functions range from sports monitoring to SMS and phone reminders, from playing games, online education to surfing the Internet, and wearable devices are becoming more and more Wi-Fi, smart Bluetooth, and NFC. With mature technologies such as GPS, the efficient wireless connection design also reduces the processing power and power requirements of wearable devices. Professionals have made predictions on the growth of various wearable devices in recent years. Among them, smart watches, sports bracelets, and wearable medical smart devices cover most of the market share. While smart glasses and smart clothes are also growing.
The purpose of smart wear is to explore a new way of human-computer interaction. And to provide consumers with exclusive and personalized services by wearing smart devices on the human body. Through the development of mobile Internet technology and the maturity of core hardware technologies for wearable devices such as low-power chips and flexible circuit boards. Some wearable devices have gradually moved from conceptualization to commercialization, and new wearable devices have been continuously introduced.
1. Fashion glasses will not only look cool, but they will also become smarter
Sony, Vuzix, and many other manufacturers have launched or are developing smart glasses wearable devices.
Although most of these devices are not very exquisite, smart glasses have begun to be seen as more and more pleasing to the eye. Google glasses are equipped with stylish frames, some of which are from the famous fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg (Diane von Mest smart glasses look like ordinary glasses, but contain a lot of technology. A meme can even monitor your Alertness to prevent you from falling asleep while driving.
2.More and more technology companies will develop smart jewelry
Recently, Intel has also entered the wearable market through its MICA smart bracelet. Its wearable device is equipped with a plethora of functions and a skin of snakeskin material and gem decorations.
Even if they fail to do so, small manufacturers such as Ringly, Mota, and Cuff will push the smart jewelry market to grow further recently.
3.Your clothes will have more sensors built-in
There is no doubt that all, HexoSkin and Sensoria will continue to launch smart sweatshirts, sports underwear, and other smart clothing. While more manufacturers will also enter the field.
3D printed clothing has come out, and many famous fashion brands symbolizing Ralph Lauren’s polo and Victoria’s Secret have displayed their smart clothing in high profile. I have seen built-in LEDs, skirts that can change color through the user’s emotions, clothing made of optical fibers, and clothing that can detect air humidity before it rains.
4.You will know your body better
Early sports wristbands could not accurately record the number of steps, but now most high-end sports wristbands are developing in the direction of excellence. Many athletes participating in the Olympics and their coaches use sports wristbands to improve their performance. This is mainly due to the improvement of the algorithm, the improvement of the sensor, and the addition of heart rate monitoring equipment.
In the future, through the gradual maturity and expansion of technologies such as AI/VR/AR. Wearables will become an important representative of artificial intelligence.
