S08E04: Wearables

This week the team talk wearables. Apple's Watch (don't call it a 'smart watch') is exciting the press but consumer awareness of fitness trackers is also surprisingly high - even if usage isn't as users abandon them after purchase. Google's Glass product is an attention-grabbing prototype but can other firms such as Sony develop the idea into a consumer product?

We discuss wearable tech from specs to socks (yes, really) and consider the future for this emerging type of device.

What wearable devices do you own or would you buy? Are there better ways to deploy these technologies than for health and fitness?
