The new trend which is invading the market is that of wearable technology.
In Italy rather than other countries, this phenomenon is found the most . Italy is also the state with the highest rate of growth.
Italy is listed at the 5th place in a rank on the elettronic market. And 12th on a world scale. The forecasts reveal that in 2022 Italy wll reach the podium by placing itself in third place.
Moreover, from 2014, a growth of 108% on sales of wearable technologies was recorded.
This new trend is modelling the technology market offering new opportunities to fashion societies.
Big brands are even more oriented and guided by a “chic over geek” insiration.
Creations must be trendy but, above all,smart.
What can be worn?
Glasses with usb-sticks, bags with powerbank, but especially smartwatches: the new watches with a thousand features.
But we should not think that technology is just fashion, in fact the above mentioned Smartwatch can also be used in health way.
Pedometer, heart rate monitor and barometer are just some of the features for sportsmen and women.
Smartwatches are becoming more and more common to use. Nowadays they are a fashion and technology must.
A smartwatch is a mobile device; it consists of a package, including the computer and the display, attached to a bracelet. While early models can perform basic tasks, such as calculations, digital time telling, translations, and game-playing, 2010s smartwatches are effectively wearable computers. Many run mobile apps, using a mobile operating system and Bluetooth connectivity. Some smartwatches function as portable media players, with FM radio and playback of digital audio and video files via a Bluetooth or USB headset. Some models, called ‘watch phones’ (or vice versa), have complete functionality of a typical smartphone
Now we are going to wait to see if the forecasts on fashion and technology will be truthful, and in the meantime, we only have to adapt.
