AB_5 Smart Wearables You Didn’t Know Exist

We’re no strangers to smartwatches and fitness trackers as wearables. As fashion technology continues to advance into the digital age, more and more clothing and accessories are now being turned into wearables that can also be used to improve health, monitor fitness, and enhance performance.

While we can all have our pick of the latest in smartwatches and fitness trackers, most well-known wearables are pretty similar in appearance. If you’re looking to make your closet smarter with the latest in wearable technology, these amazing pieces boast cutting-edge features and distinctive designs that don’t just go on your wrist! Make the most out of your lightning-fast Internet connection from PLDT Home with these smart wearables you didn’t know existed!

Machina Smart Hoodie

From Machina Official Website

This hoodie claims to be the world’s most advanced, having been meticulously engineered with the most recent developments in fashion technology while providing promising stretch and breathability. You can control music and lights or answer phone calls. You can even use it as a panic button with a single tap of Machina’s M.Bot controller, which utilizes Out Of Body Experience (OBE) technology!

Fitbit Luxe Special Edition

When it comes to wearables, it’s not just about the features anymore. While most fitness trackers and smartwatches look pretty much the same, Fitbit takes a different route with the Fitbit Luxe Special Edition. A fashion-forward piece designed to resemble jewelry, it has the same health-monitoring features as Fitbit’s other trackers but with a more elegant design. It can assess users’ stress levels and provide advice on how to deal with them. Plus, it can also monitor sleep and collect data on how to improve it.

Nod Ring

From Wearables Official Website

Although diminutive in size, the Nod Ring is a powerful entry in the wearable technology industry. The ring has the ability to operate home appliances, smartphones, and other connected devices—just like a smart assistant would.

Google Contact Lens

Google Smart Contact Lens

From Google Official Website

This impressively tiny gadget is Google’s attempt at manufacturing wearable technology in 2014. The Google Contact Lens puts a strong emphasis on health as it tracks a wearer’s blood glucose levels through their tears. Although this outstanding addition to wearable technology is still under development, it will definitely make an impact on people with diabetes once released.

PUMA Fit Intelligence

PUMA Fi

From PUMA Official Website

Here’s a wearable straight out of Back to the Future. PUMA introduced Fit Intelligence (Fi), a self-lacing training shoe, in 2019. These shoes have sophisticated sensing technology that can recognize the form of the wearer’s foot, allowing it to adapt the fit to maximize comfort. The PUMI Fi can also be linked to an app, which can monitor, correct, and fine-tune their fit. They can also be managed while in motion using an Apple Watch.
