Health and fitness-oriented wearable devices that offer biometric measurements such as heart rate, perspiration levels, and even complex measurements like oxygen levels in the bloodstream were widely adopted this past year. Technology advancements in the future may even allow alcohol levels or other similar measurements to be made via a wearable device. The ability to sense, store, and track biometric measurements over time and then analyze the results, is just one interesting possibility. Tracking body temperature, for example, might provide an early indication of whether a cold or the flu is on the way. Look for the health and medical markets to adopt collaborative tools to allow doctors to monitor patients through their wearable devices with a proactive approach to medicine.
