How Smart Wearables Can Improve Your Health and Lifestyle

Posted by in Tip of the week

The world of smart wearable tech is still in its bourgeoning phase and the possibilities are endless. Understanding the different artificial intelligence makes in wearables is the key to understanding its potential.

Why wearable?

A wearable is more than a device; it works like a part of the wearer. It shouldn’t impose any additional social, psychological, or ergonomic burden on the user. In today’s hectic world, a person could easily lose or leave a personal electronic device behind one, but is unlikely to walk out of the house without clothes.

It’s customizable

Wearable technology with artificial intelligence has the ability to learn the wearer’s unique characteristics and customize how it interacts with them.

For instance, Belty Good Vibes learns your pace and rhythm so that when you’re walking a little slow, it knows to remind you to increase your pace. Furthermore, if you’re more sedentary than usual, Belty will encourage you to get up and move. On a fashionable note, Belty has customizable straps so you will never have to worry about your belt going out of style.

Improving your health

A key way in which wearable technology can improve health is by helping users create new good habits. Manufacturers of fitness trackers have learned that passively tracking what users do throughout the day is not very strong motivation to improve healthy habits. It puts all of the responsibility on the individual to take action. Alternatively, smart wearable devices, like Belty learn your habits and give guidance and suggested goals. You can set goals you’d like to work on, such as stress management or physical activity, for your wearable to help you achieve.
