This blog post was originally written for Tobias & Tobias. I went to a meetup about wearables and wrote a summary on the night. I wrote an article about the disruption with watches on this blog a few months ago.
At Tobias & Tobias, some of our staff wear Pebble watches, Fitbit trackers and tinker with kits to create connected devices. Some of us attended the IxDA MeetUp on wearables last week and were keen to see how the space is developing.
Wearables are electronic devices that create reports or recommendations based on physical activity, when worn by the user. We listened to several talks by artists and technologists making waves in the art, fashion and tech worlds about how wearables will become as ubiquitous as smartphones.
