Published: 26th January 2016

LitePoint technology verifies and calibrates the most commonly used technologies in wearable devices and continues to develop test solutions for new wireless technologies.

The development of wearables

The development of wearable devices is being driven largely by new innovations in wireless technologies.

Wearables began as wrist-worn devices for those interested in tracking their sporting achievements or daily physical activity. Today, wearable technologies have expanded into wirelessly-enabled trainers, Internet-enabled augmented-reality glasses, smart watches and even contact lenses that monitor blood sugar levels to alert people with diabetes when they need a snack, an insulin injection or serious medical attention.

Wireless technologies in wearables today

  • Bluetooth Smart (also known as Bluetooth Low Energy) – Enables small coin-cell batteries that consume power at such low levels to last for months or years, making wearable devices hassle-free in daily life. It also facilitates short-range downloads of data from a wearable device to Internet-based applications.
  • Wi-Fi – Lightning fast data networks make it possible to surf the Internet on your wristwatch powered by small but powerful processors
  • GPS – Tracks your activities from anywhere on Earth through a global satellite network to measure how far you swim, bike or run

Recent advances in wireless technologies are now making wearable devices much more widespread and affordable and the market for wearable devices is set for huge growth in the near future.
