What Wearable Technology to Expect in 2017 in IoT world


Undoubtedly, Smart Technology is a major trend that is tightly embraced by tech companies like Samsung and Apple. From smart watches to headphones, the continuous growth of wearable technology is taking our world by storm. On the counter side, consumers are not yet ready to switch towards this growing culture. The lower than expected sales of Apple watch demonstrates the response of consumers towards wearable technology. Despite this, the total amount spent on wearable technology in 2016 alone accounted to $2.63 billion, and the figures are anticipated to rise every year.

According to a Forbes spokesperson – “ One out of six people own a wearable gadget such as a Fitbit tracker, and the number will increase by 35% until 2019.”

Keeping such things in mind, What should we expect from wearable technology? The answer is simple, such devices should encapsulate functions that will help us improve our healthy life, from improving men’s fertility challenges to tracking sleep. This article highlights top three wearable technology that will be available to us. So, without wasting much time let’s see the offerings of wearable technology in 2017.

Sparton Boxer Brief

While most of us are concerned about protecting our skin from UV radiation of the sun, there are much bigger things to worry about. Did you know, our cellular devices can impact our fertility health? According to scientific research, the wireless device radiation can have toxic effects on our genitals and increase the risk of cancer.

The Spartan Boxer Brief is the first undergarment that keeps men’s genital safe from Wi-Fi and cellular radiation. The product is tested in Langevin Institute – a leading science experiment laboratory. The results of the test reveal that these boxers can block over 98% of cellular and Wi-Fi radiation. The Sparton Boxer Brief made their debut earlier this year in London. And within a short span of time, they will be available in clothing stores around your residence.


Fitbit has crossed yet another milestone with the introduction of MYZONE. This unique device tracks every ounce of effort you put in your exercise and shows accurate reports. As mentioned by the experts at FitBits, this device is much reliable compared to other wrist based devices. The chest strap detects every heart beat even in intense exercise sessions, which is a far cry for wrist based devices. Therefore, the data coming from such devices is accurate when swimming, boxing, jumping, and moving in different ways.

Nuyu Sleep System

Nuyu Sleep system is not exactly a wearable. It operates when a body is directly laying on it and adjusts the body temperature to ensure quality sleep. The product retails for $500 and is available in stores located in our neighborhood.  This smart device maintains the natural rhythm of our body and helps us fall and stay asleep for the required period. According to manufacturers, “the device heats and cools the body as required, and                                                          manages the right temperature to help our customers get a sound sleep.”

These are just few examples of what are coming our way. Besides the products mentioned above, we might also see GPS dog collars, Kids Toys, Biometric bras, and more.

Soon the prices of wearable will drastically decrease, and they will become mainstream. I’m sure we will be purchasing one or two of such products. But until then, we can keep a bird’s eye view on our preferred wearable techs.
