IoT Aids

Nothing is more innovative or sophisticated than the products being made by the wearables industry in the "smart" era. Individuals track, analyze, monitor, and transmit personal data using these tangible wearable gadgets. Moreover, the adaptable wearable technology is opening up new horizons with business-focused smartphone apps. However, it is still in its early stages, and according to recent developments in this field, the major players in wearable technology are concentrating on developing products with a focus on business applications.


These intelligent Internet of Things (IoT) devices are now widely employed in a variety of businesses and help detect biometric data such as heart rate and sleep habits, among others. In the coming ten years, wearable IoT technology or devices ought to become an integral part of every individual’s daily life.

Businesses around the world are incorporating the newest technologies into their functioning and are looking at digitally altering their impact in the market. With the majority of people already accustomed to using smartphones, they are now also getting familiar with utilizing wearable technology, such as smartwatches, jewelry, and fitness bands. Therefore, the demand for applications is increasing along with technology as we become more technologically adept.


Rising Wearable Industries


Health and Fitness Wearables

The health, fitness, and fashion industries are closely related to any wearable technology or device. People are now frequently using smartwatches to monitor their heart rate and the number of steps they take when walking or running, which has boosted the industries with this technology. IoT devices include medical sensors to track progress in terms of health. It is possible to determine how healthy a person's lifestyle is by gathering accurate health statistics from these devices. Additionally, it monitors sleeping patterns, enhancing your overall quest for wellness.


Gaming Wearables

Gaming is a significant new market for wearable technology and one which is booming. The most prevalent category of wearables in the market is virtual reality (VR) headsets. With VR devices like the Oculus Rift or Playstation VR, players are immediately immersed in otherworldly experiences. Several kinds of breathtaking experiences are now accessible to players everywhere, thanks to VR wearables.


Connected Cars

Automobiles are steadily gaining traction among IoT devices, but they are still a small market (just 0.05 percent of all connected devices are cars), and Ford and Tesla are vying for the top spot. Ford has dominated the connected car market, with Subaru being the only other manufacturer to see any appreciable growth in new connections since July 2020. In contrast, other producers are fighting for a sizable market share as the potential to grow this segment is highly exponential.


Conclusion

Today, wearable technology is planned, developed, distributed, and used in a variety of consumer and corporate markets. The ways in which these markets overlap and influence one another are constantly changing. IoT will significantly change how businesses engage with customers, streamline their operations, and contribute to the creation of a system that relies on such data.

Who should lead the push for IoT security?

Article | February 10, 2020

The ease with which internet of things devices can be compromised, coupled with the potentially extreme consequences of breaches, have prompted action from legislatures and regulators, but what group is best to decide? Both the makers of IoT devices and governments are aware of the security issues, but so far they haven’t come up with standardized ways to address them. The challenge of this market is that it’s moving so fast that no regulation is going to be able to keep pace with the devices that are being connected,” said Forrester vice president and research director Merritt Maxim. “Regulations that are definitive are easy to enforce and helpful, but they’ll quickly become outdated.”The latest such effort by a governmental body is a proposed regulation in the U.K. that would impose three major mandates on IoT device manufacturers that would address key security concerns.
