While the ponder over continues to rage as to whether or not the second instalment of Google Drinking-glass will ever take centre stage in the consumer superstore, the first, primitive offering embodied the issues that be with wearable technology. More specifically, the potential functionality of this instrument could not make up for a visually unappealing design, while the prohibitory price point also caused considerable cause for be about. If wearable technology was ever to become popular, the experts claimed, it thinks fitting need to become decidedly cooler and modern in its design.
If there is one category of wearable technology to help bridge the gap between style and functionality, it is the trenchant watch. Led by the market leading Apple Watch, some of the formative drafts have been sleek, stylish and decidedly versatile across a series of alternate looks. Simplicity underpins this design ethos, with Apple be enduring arguably created an iconic timepiece that uses vibrant disguises and beautifully presented lines to devastating effect. In contrast, the darker and edgier Samsung Chattels Live offers an extremely sleek design that is pointed at male users.
From this perspective, wearable technology has already rather commenced to look cool. In addition to this, its ever-increasing range of functionality expects that it is ideal both as a fitness aid and a recreational tool, signally as these garments can be synchronised to an iOS or Android smartphone. This could be markedly revolutionary for mobile casino gaming in the UK, or even the U.S. if gambling is till the cows come home legalised fully in the states. Such a range of uses but adds to the coolness of wearable technology, and a similarly appealing purpose will help to transform the market.
In many ways, the wearable technology hawk is currently in a state of flux. While the current generation of smart sentries and to a lesser degree fitness bands all boast a semblance of aesthetic petition and design quality, for example, the failure of more complex casts such as Google Glass suggests that there is till a gap to bridge between form and functionality. This means that while not all wearable technology commitments can currently be described as being cool, significant advancements should prefer to been made in the last 12 months and there is quiescent for further development in the future.
Google Glass 2.0 reaffirms this, which for all that still officially in Beta mode suggests that the label have learned from their previously failed labours. Not only will the new hardware be cheaper (assuming that it is sorted available to the public and not solely to enterprises), but the brand are also probed to have joined forces with fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg to distribute the range of frames available. With potentially five graceful frames (including a titanium example targeted at male consumers) and eight smart shades, Google Glass 2.0 may yet become one of the coolest and most la mode examples of wearable technology yet.
