Wearable Technology has come to stay and there is no more going back. Their presence in luxury and digital media is similar to the arrival of the internet. The future digital landscape is dotted with wearable technology devices and luxury brands cannot escape this phenomenon.
Wearable technology are devices designed to expand or enhance a wearer's experience not only with other people but with the brand. Once luxury brands understand this, they will see all the opportunities that wearable tech can offer.
Wearable Technology mediates the interaction between users and their immediate environments. This means being hyper-connected digitally on a permanent basis. They amplify the lives of users and help them do things faster, quicker and easier.
The shift in wearable devices is from single function to cross function. The scope of application of the device has been enhanced
Wearables are causing a re-thinking of the boundaries of the body, material science and digital technology; and creating new forms of interpersonal as well as brand to consumers interactions.
Wearables started as far back as 1975 with the calculator wrist watches by HP, Pulsar & Casio. Today this technology is being pushed forward by the likes of Nike, Samsung and Google.
In the near future, 1 in 20 smartphones will be connected to a smart watch. The global annual wearable device unit shipments will surpass 100 million in 2014, and reach 300 million units in 5 years.
