Fitbits and Apple watches are a common sight, but today’s wearables are expected to look quite different in the future.¬†This interesting information came from eWeek in their article, “Wearables Hype Fading, Future Devices to Take New Forms: Report.”

Wearables, such as smartwatches and fitness trackers, have been very popular in the last two years with consumers, but their popularity is waning and the technologies that drive them are in high demand, which will likely inspire changes and evolution in the devices themselves.

Wearables started with Google Glass in 2012 and, as trends tend to do, the hype has shifted to more specific tasks using more sophisticated technology with each generation of product. Virtual reality wearable products will have a brighter future than just digital based products. At least until the next new technology comes along.
