The future of wearables

WW-future-hero

So here we are the start of 2015. The wearables market is only just at the beginning of a 10-year boom, which will unsettle business models and organisations in a much more pervasive way than the smartphone boom.

According to Gartner, more than 70 million fitness trackers and health gadgets were sold globally in 2014. The first wave of devices has focussed on wellness, but the future will be driven by harnessing the data to discover completely unexpected products and use cases.

The future of wearables will be less about the plastic on your wrist, and more about making sense of the data these devices generate to do something even more useful for the user.

AotW-anydo-HERO

If you’re like me, you have a never ending list of to-dos, meetings and reminders, and are constantly adding to it throughout the day. Luckily, there are heaps of apps to help you and I remember, prioritise, plan and find time to do stuff.

After a lot of research and trialling some of the apps on offer, I chose Any.Do, one of the heavy hitters alongside Wunderlist (think of them a bit like the TeamEdward/TeamJacob of the To Do App world).

Filed under: ,,,

Weddings – to tech or not to tech? I DO!

I claim to be a stress-free bride, but let me say that no one is immune to bridezilla moments.

Let’s face it: life is crazy, and adding ‘tying the knot’ into the mix sometimes feels like sitting in the centre of a seven lane roundabout. It’s the Arc de Triomphe of life events!

After 18 months of wedding planning (and with just a few weeks to go!) I‘ve learnt that technology is your friend when it comes to getting hitched. Why? ‘Cause it’s the hi-tech bridesmaid you never knew you needed… until now.

So here are my top five wedding apps and tech ideas to help get you through.

Want to get fit? Go to more music festivals

WW-180215-hero

Welcome to our Wearable Wednesdays series, a weekly look at the world of wearables.

When you’re partying at a music festival, probably the last thing on your mind is how much exercise you’re getting.

But when you get home, you feel like you’ve had a serious workout – right? So just how much energy do you really burn?

We asked regular festival-goers, The Au Review’s Johnny Au and Larry Heath to put our theory to the test.  And it seems you’re right to feel exhausted, because spending a day at a festival is pretty much the same as doing a three hour kickboxing class (but with much better music)!
