Wearable technology integrates electronics, sensors and processors into our clothing and accessories. Today, we can increasingly put smaller and less obvious electronics into everyday objects such as sunglasses, watches and other wearable items.
Wearable technologies will often have sensors which collect useful data such as heart rate, GPS coordinates, sound recordings, video and other information. They will also often have Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and can connect to other devices, apps and social media on the internet.
