Wearable Product Development Challenges

Applied Tech Review | Wednesday, January 04, 2023

Wearable devices are changing the way consumers communicate, monitor, and share information, experiences, and information. Wearables include smartwatches, fitness trackers, VR headsets, smart jewelry, and smart glasses.

Fremont, CA: It is becoming easier and more convenient to use these devices as they become smarter, lighter, and smaller. As brands have become more focused on niches and features that work, their devices have become more relevant.

Wearable technology will continue to disrupt and personalize our everyday lives and harness the power of these trends and innovations to take wearable technology mainstream.

Wearable technology has been slow to gain traction among consumers, despite its continued growth. Below are some challenges in developing wearable devices and ensuring they are adopted by the public besides the cost of the device itself.

Battery Life: Wearable technology faces a number of challenges when it comes to battery life. A limited battery space makes it necessary for wearable devices to manage power effectively. For the devices to last a reasonable amount of time, it is essential to utilize the battery life efficiently.

Ergonomics: When it comes to wearable devices that are intended to be worn for long periods of time, ergonomics and comfort are of paramount importance. An ideal comfort level is one that does not constantly remind the user that something is strapped to them.

Providing value and differentiating yourself: A product's success depends on getting people to wear it. In addition to wearing a limited number of devices, several competing products are in the market.

People buy a product in addition to its value in order to relate to it and express themselves through it. Therefore, wearable products require a design that is both aesthetically pleasing and marketable to appeal to consumers emotionally.

Sealing: We'll briefly mention waterproofing in this overview since it's another challenging area for wearables.

Water and sweat are present on wearable products several times - for example, while showering, washing hands, or participating in sports activities. Therefore, it is essential that the device is protected against water entry in all of these situations.

Integration and miniaturization: As a result, integrating radios and antennas into mobile devices like laptops and smartphones is somewhat challenging. Due to their small form factors, wearable devices face even greater challenges. Integrating multiple antennas at this small size and maintaining reasonable signal strength is impossible.
