EZIO: Refined Techwear

This is the revolution I’ve been hoping for: wearable tech that’s primary design aesthetic is jewelry, not tech. Although this jewelry is still too large and gaudy for my taste, I know that it’s a style that some women wear already, and that’s a huge step forward.

This collection of watches and jewelry pendants can be programmed to blink or vibrate to alert the wearer to text messages, phone calls, or social network updates.

InvenSense: Activity Recognition Wearable

One of the biggest complaints about current activity monitors is that you get unfair credit for activities like biking, skiing or other sports.

This company has a solution: The user calibrates the sensor when doing these activities, and it learns what say, biking, feels like. Then it predicts the activity and awards the appropriate “points.”
