Ever wished there was a technology that you could just carry with you? Well, your wish has been granted. Wearable electronic devices are the next big thing in the electronics world. Wearable gadgets refer to electronic equipment that can be worn by a user. More generally, these refer to smart watches.

These devices provide plethora of functions from being a GPS smart watch to a heart rate monitor to a smart eye wear. With a good wearable device, you can watch videos and browse through pictures as well as read text messages and emails. What's more, if you’re smart watch is cool enough, you can even respond to voice commands, browse the web and much more. For businesses, these are a boon since many business operations can be made convenient.

However, today you will see smart watches being the most popular wearable device. The reason is simple. Smart watches offer a lot more than just watching time. You can play games, browse pictures and do a lot more with your smart watch. In fact, companies like Samsung have already come out with their own smart watch while companies like Apple are thought to launch their smart watch soon too.

What once seemed like a dream is becoming reality with plenty of these miracle devices in the pipeline and waiting to be launched. For example, investigators have it that Apple iWatch has already gone into production and will release later this year. Google is all set to take the market by storm with its launch of Google Glass. Bluetooth rings heart rate monitors etc. are all in the list of wearable electronic devices.

The most unique feature of these devices is the amount of time we'll spend with them. Since they are to be worn, they are going to be indispensable. However, this doesn't render the smart phones any less useful. In fact, the smart gear complements the functions of smart phones. But yes, the ability of taking pictures and videos will definitely let them be in our hands more than our phones.

However, wearable devices would only go main stream once companies like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon and Facebook make more serious investment in the application of what this technology can do. We need good operating systems for the smart watches too or else there will never be many buyers for these wearable devices. In fact, this is why companies like Google are constantly trying to improve the operating system for smart watches.
