Little did I know that I was joining the wearable tech revolution that would shape a $70 billion (Dr Peter Harrop, 2014) market in 2024. From on-body and ingested devices that can track your every movement to Google Glass, which allows you to take pictures with a blink, it seems like wearable tech will soon become an integral part of our lives.

The following examples will give you some for food for thought to apply this trend in your own industry:
At this moment, most companies are monetizing wearable tech through selling devices and services. As wearable tech gets ready for prime time, it’ll offer a lot of opportunities for marketers. The devices and apps will provide personalized data about consumer preferences, allowing us to target consumers with targeted content.
