Wearable technology represents a monumental shift of business practices and even new business models for device manufacturers, content and application providers, and service providers. Wearable technology today represents an array of products including watches, wristbands, and various clothing items. While there is not yet a clear winner in terms of product or even product category, what is clear is that the future of wearable technology in terms of implementation and operations will be completely different than today.
