Wearable technology is now the heart of each discussion related to the Internet of Things (IoT), and the complete array of new competencies ubiquitous connectivity can fetch. We have been closely watching the products such as Apple Watch, Google Daydream etc hitting the headlines almost every day. The conclusion is pretty evident, this sector is going to get bigger and is going to transform the entire marketplace.
- Disturbing Heating Issues
Wearables are minor and mobile and henceforth they require mini yet efficient batteries to operate. The relative challenge is heat. As these devices consume power and exhibit heat, there are a lot of chances for them to have heating issues. Use of cooling fibers could be one of the methods to solve this problem to some extent, though.
- Organization and MNC Insecurities
One of the major concerns for any consumer is privacy. These wearables have the ability to collect data extending from the user’s location to other important details, which can be offensive for any organization and lead you to the court with a lawsuit. One cannot ignore the instances where these devices transmitted industry secrets in the trade market or other companies. Such incidents eventually leave users unsure. Each tech establishment needs to undertake stringent methods and processes to keep the trust of customers intact in their products.
- Privacy Concerns
Government and internet officials are already laying the regulations on the use and storage of personal data, which means we are still unsure of our personal information spreading like wildfire. Privacy encroaches in two ways; your data can either be used by the wearable device founders or by others through audio and video recording etc. The crucial part is security on this front is still evolving.
- Adoption at Workplace
Many companies do not allow camera-equipped phones due to safety issues but one needs to grow with time to keep an edge over others. Henceforth, companies must transform their policies to (Bring Your Own Device) BYOD. Adoption of such a futuristic technology can be a bit difficult but none can escape it.
- Access to availability
Due to restricted interface preferences, meeting availability options is a challenge. Visual interfaces are complex because of several lighting conditions. Although audio features can help in solving this issue but fail due to the different accent, language, and broken speech.
The market is flooding with wearables but I haven’t come across a single one, which doesn’t have any of these issues. We have a moment of ease for fitness lovers, runners and sportsmen as Boltt with its well-researched product have overshadowed all these drawbacks and come up with a new wearable ecosystem. It tied up with Garmin only to bring an impeccable device powered by a virtual coach that will not only keep your data and personal information safe but will be easy to use.
