2022’s 7 Best Wearable Electronics.
Wearable technology continues to develop new devices that are designed to simplify your daily activities. Wearable electronics are no longer just smartwatches and fitness trackers that can measure heart rate. The latest wearable technology goes as far as giving users health advice, advanced step-by-step instructions, and detecting the intensity of UV rays when you’re sunbathing.
2022’s 7 Best Wearable Electronics
Wondering which wearables you need to watch out for in 2022? Here are some of the best wearables you can get right now. You can already order most of the devices mentioned in this list from Amazon.
1. Smart Rings
One of the simplest yet most useful smart wearables you can get next year is the smart ring. If you spend a lot of time in work meetings or in class and don’t want to look at your phone screen every time you get a notification, this is the perfect little device for you.
With a smart ring, you can receive alerts without drawing attention to yourself. You can also use the smart ring for contactless payments and even to open or lock your front door or car. Also, you don’t have to worry about constantly charging your smart ring as these devices have a long battery life.
You can find many smart rings in the market. Below are the smart rings that we found particularly impressive.
The NFC OPN ring is waterproof and can control your smartphone apps (works with both iOS and Android), lock and unlock doors, transfer data, and even take care of your contactless payments. They’re not quite as smart as the Apple Watch yet, but they’re much cheaper and don’t require recharging. You can buy it for less than $20 on the official website.
If you want a chic ring with a whimsical design, check out the Oura ring. It comes with real-time heart rate monitoring, temperature sensors, sleep detection, and activity analysis. The Oura smart ring is compatible with Apple Health and Google Fit, so if you’ve been wanting to ditch your smartwatch for something lighter and more stylish, now is the time. Since Oura is a premium smart ring, it is not as cheap as the alternatives. The Next Generation Oura Ring 3 is available for $299.
2. Smart Glasses
Did you grow up watching and reading science fiction where the main character puts on glasses and sees a display with detailed information about the world around them? Then smart glasses are your indispensable accessory.
Smart glasses come with small computers that process information and display results in real-time. They do it in such a way that only you – the owner – can see this information. Most smart glasses can connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth, display incoming calls, provide GPS navigation, and the like. While other glasses can greatly enhance your life with their AR or virtual reality capabilities.
Ray-Ban Stories is a collaboration between Ray-Ban and Meta (formerly known as Facebook). These are smart glasses that allow you to capture everything around in a photo or video. Ray-Ban Stories does not support VR but instead comes with a set of cameras, speakers, and a touchscreen. You can use these glasses to shoot short video clips of up to 30 seconds, take photos, make calls, and even play music. And all this in the iconic Ray-Ban style.
However, if you look at this gadget from a different angle, these smart glasses become a pair of creepy spy glasses that allow Facebook to collect even more data. If that doesn’t bother you, you can purchase a pair of Ray-Ban Stories for $299 from the official store.
3. Smart Clothing with Sensors
A recent addition to the family of smart wearables is smart clothing. These clothes are equipped with sensors that measure various indicators of your body and send you notifications if something is wrong or out of the norm.
At first glance, this looks like a standard Levi’s Trucker jacket, but it’s actually a new wearable gadget. With Google integration, you can use this jacket with your smartphone to control your music, phone calls, or even get directions while you’re on the road.
The jacket connects to your phone via Bluetooth and can be paired with Android and iOS. According to Levi’s, this wearable is waterproof. Plus, it comes with a battery life of up to 14 days of active use.
Another good example of smart clothing is swimwear from Swim.com. They offer swimwear, swim caps, and swim goggles that come with swim trackers that can replace your Fitbit and do pool fitness tracking.
This smart wearable is apparently water-resistant, requires no charging, and allows you to track your swimming activities hands-free. You don’t need to activate or start your swim tracker; this will happen automatically as soon as you start swimming. Because you won’t be wearing any additional wristbands, bonded swimwear will reduce drag and optimize water flow around your body.
4. Smart Earphones
Smart wearables are not just activity trackers. Some of them are aimed at reducing daily stress levels and improving sleep. If you’re having trouble sleeping, get yourself a headset that doubles as your regular earbuds and headphones.
Bose’s Sleepbuds II isn’t really headphones, as they won’t play your favorite Spotify tracks. Instead, they play relaxing sounds and instrumental tunes to help you fall asleep faster and sleep better through the night. You can use the default sound set or download additional sounds from the Bose Sleep sound library.
Bose claims that their sleep technology is clinically proven to improve your sleep. You can use a fitness tracker or a sleep-tracking smartwatch to see if this is true.
5. Medical Wearables
Smart medical wearables are currently a popular type of wearable electronics. While a Fitbit is enough for some people to reach their fitness or lifestyle goals, even the best smartwatches can’t track blood oxygen levels, blood pressure, or hydration levels. Medical wearables are still in the early stages of development, but it is already clear that they can simplify the daily lives of many people and have many applications in the healthcare industry.
Headphones that can improve hearing are a great gift for a hearing-impaired techie. Nuheara’s IQbuds is one of the world’s most famous headphones that combine hearing aids and entertainment features.
IQbuds let you customize how you hear the world around you with active noise cancellation and high-quality audio. You can optimize your headphones and create your own hearing profile with the Nuheara IQbuds app, available for both iPhone and Android smartphones.
6. Smart Helmets
Whether you are a professional athlete or a cycling (or skiing) enthusiast, wearing a good quality helmet can guarantee you a certain level of safety (of course, you can never be completely safe when doing extreme sports). A smart helmet can enhance your driving experience and make your trip not only safer but also more comfortable.
Faro is a smart helmet that helps you stay visible on the road. This helmet features powerful front and rear lights that you can personalize and add animations to make you more visible while riding. The Faro helmet can also react to ambient light, detect different weather conditions, and automatically adjust lighting for better visibility.
This wearable device can also turn your turn signals and brake lights on and off automatically, as well as track your rides. The Faro Smart Helmet is fully waterproof and has an important fall detection feature. If the helmet sensors detect a fall, they use the Bluetooth connection with your smartphone to activate the alarm. If you don’t answer within a certain period of time, it notifies your emergency contacts with a link to your location. Some other wearable devices with the same feature are Apple Watch SE, Apple Watch Series 4, and later.
Biosensors are arguably the most disruptive technology in the field of wearable electronics. The number of possible applications for them is not limited, but they are mainly used today for personalized health monitoring. Biosensors are portable electronic devices that integrate sensors into your body so you can record, collect and calculate data using mobile and handheld devices.
Biosensors can be very useful when it comes to patient monitoring (or self-monitoring) as they can automatically and continuously measure a patient’s vital signs, body position, step count, fall detection, and more.
QuardioCore is a wearable electrocardiogram that can easily help you monitor your heart health. This ECG records your heart rate and sends it to your cardiologist. In addition to helping you manage your heart condition, this ECG can be used to improve cardio training.
