Technology trend wearables - the innovations of our time

Wearables, that means "wearable" - and that's a good description. Because the wearables trend is all about portable mini-computers and other gadgets that support athletes during sports. The spectrum ranges from smartwatches and fitness trackers to action cams. In many sports, wearables are now standard. The editorial team keeps an eye on the latest developments and makes recommendations on what is really worthwhile.

Wearables: Technical innovation for recreational sports

Recreational sports are becoming more and more professional, in fitness training as well as in running, in the various action sports and in the entire outdoor sector. One of the reasons for this is that even recreational athletes now have measurement and control values at their disposal that not even professionals had a few years ago. The market is highly innovative, and not only Apple (iOS) and Samsung (Android) are playing along. For creative start-ups, the growing wearables market opens up terrific opportunities.

Wearables conquer the world of sports

Small tracking devices on the wrist or chest strap reliably record the distance run and the route profile while jogging, assign health data such as heart rate or calorie consumption, and calculate the runner's fitness and the optimal training program for the coming day on this basis. The community entry provides feedback from like-minded people, new route recommendations, running advances and, above all, a powerful boost of motivation. One example, because wearables are now available in all sporting areas, even route planning for climbers on the rock will soon be possible.
