CES 2016, the massive tech trade show in Las Vegas with more than 170,000 attendees, wraps up on Saturday. The show featured gadgets of all kinds, but wearable technology was definitely a major trend. Here's a look at seven interesting wearable devices on display at CES this year.
MOTA showed off its DOI SmartRing, which allows the user to check notifications with one hand by swiping its tiny touchscreen with your thumb. The company was showing off a working prototype, but they expect the product to launch sometime later this year.
Sensoria showed off its updated multi-garment smart clothing system, targeted at runners. The company sells smart sports bras, socks and T-shirts that can work together to collect data, including stride length and foot impact, to help runners improve their performance.
SleepPhones are soft, padded Bluetooth speakers, embedded into a comfy headband, perfect for tuning out and relaxing as you fall asleep. This year, the company is debuting SleepPhones Harmony, which includes built-in sensors to detect and analyze users head movement during sleep. The device will adjust volume, sounds and beats based on the data to help improve sleep quality.
The Smartshoe from Digitsole includes a warming system to keep toes cozy, sensors to measure activity levels and shock absorption, and an opening and closing system controlled from the wearer's smart phone.
Canhegat's new product, the Canhe-Fit, is a wearable for your cat or dog. It allows pet owners to track their pet's food intake and activity level and shares that data with their veterinarian. The device also functions as a GPS for missing pets.
The Uno Noteband uses Spritz speed-reading technology to allow users to get all the notifications they need quickly without having to access a smartphone. It also is equipped with a tiny accelerometer for fitness tracking.
These prototype smartglasses from Mirama enable hands-free workers to access important information. Users can manipulate the augmented reality display through hand and finger gestures - essentially "swiping" and "clicking" the air.
