Wounds heal faster if there is rapid movement in the patient like exercising as it improves blood circulation in the body. These sensors may also have the ability to detect blood clotting and infections in the wound. Depending on your recovery speed, the doctor will take needed steps to fasten the recovery process and suggest you better treatment. Someone with slow recovery needs to stay home while someone with faster recovery could go out often. Due to continuous movement of information to health care professional the patients will also be conscious about their condition as the band would be connected to their Smartphones. The 5G low-latency will let the patients inform their doctors if there are any health related changes or emergency. To bring down the cost 3D printers at ILS would be used to produce the bandages while experts will be working on nano-technology to develop the tiny sensors.
Apple steals the limelight once again, this time with the Apple Watch. According to latest data released by Strategy Analytics, in the first quarter of 2017 Apple becomes the largest wearable vendor in the world taking over Fitbit’s top position for the first time. Apple holds 16% market share which is the highest off all. The total global wearable shipment in Q1 of 2017 has touched 22 million units.
A couple of days back, I came across this application which scans your face and automatically adds dynamics – it makes you look older, younger, can add or modify your smile and even show how you’d look if you were of the opposite gender. A novelty app at best, FaceApp does bring about the big question: Can AI actually power the next generation of consumer technology?
What makes a good smartphone brand, a great one? Innovation? Definitely. Collaboration with big brands? Works in the longer run. A presence in non-smartphone areas? More fishing rods in the pond, right? It’s quite a given, actually: a smartphone brand cannot be great by following a singular path.
Apple launched its first Watch two years back, which didn’t really focus on fitness and tracking. Then about 6 months back it came out with Apple Watch Series 2 which added lots of new fitness related features. But is it really a Smartwatch for the fitness enthusiast niche?
The Apple Watch Series 2 launched in 2016 with new features like GPS, dual-core processor, water resistance, etc. It was a big update to make the smartwatch useful for runs, swims and independent apps. There are many expectations from the Apple Watch Series 3, especially after the new Android Wear 2 update and independent sim-compatible smartwatches.
With wearables being more connected to us than our smartphones they know so much about us. This makes it vulnerable to security and privacy issues. There might be many risk factors which are general to all such devices. For example they are able to transfer and store personal data, but do not include PIN protection or user authentication features.
Huawei recently climbed up as the world’s third largest smartphone maker in the world. In the US, it may not be so popular yet, but it definitely has taken over the Chinese market steadily over the past few years. Huawei’s major business is still their technology powering mobile networks, but their smartphone business is a rapidly growing one. Thinking about Huawei’s consumer devices from a lifestyle perspective, they have incorporated some really innovative technology in their smartwatch and smartphones.
