10 Wearable Devices at CES 2017
Wearable devices stole the show at CES 2017 — but the products vendors are showcasing this year are much different than the traditional, fitness tracking smartwatches consumers have seen in the past.
The definition of a “wearable” connected device is extending far beyond just a wristwatch. At this year’s CES, attendees saw connected shirts and headsets. In addition, wearable devices are functioning as more than fitness trackers—they now are pairing as blood pressure monitors or anti-nausea connected devices.
From the Casio WSD-F20 Smartwatch to the BACTrack Mobile, here are the 10 coolest wearables we saw at this year’s CES.
Imagine the ability to track your motions and activities without any hefty wearables or headsets — just through a shirt. This is the goal behind Tokyo-based Xenoma’s e-skin, a lightweight shirt that tracks motion through a “human-friendly” interface.
The machine-washable, durable e-skin can be used for gaming and VR experiences, fitness and health care. Xenoma e-skin, which will launch in February for an undisclosed price, includes the e-skin shirt, one e-skin hub and an SDK interface unity platform.
Quell is a wearable device that helps those who suffer from chronic pain by using electrical stimulation to trigger a response in the brain, ultimately blocking pain signals. The device, worn on the upper calf, is ultimately 5X more powerful than other over-the-counter pain relief devices, according to its developer, Waltham, Mass.-based NeuroMetrix.
The Massachusetts-based company launched the second generation of the FDA-cleared device at CES, and it’s available for $249.
