The Consumer Electronics Show produced a wide new array of technology for the wearable space. Some of these new devices have been updates on older versions, while others are new devices altogether. One of the newest pieces of tech is known as the HTC Vive Pro. This is a wearable VR helmet which will provide an extremely high definition apparatus to the user.
The company stated that “The HTC Vive has quietly been updated a number of times over the past couple of years, with constant refinements and tweaks. All the learnings from the original Vive are embodied here in the Vive Pro, with a headsetthat is now 50 per cent lighter than the original model when it was first launched. In our demo at the company’s press conference at CES 2018, we instantly noticed the difference. The headset isn’t as light as a feather, but it is light enough that you can forget you are wearing it, and it certainly doesn’t suffer from a front-heavy display like the first models that came off the production line.”
The other popular device from the show is the new Garmin Forerunner 645 Music. According to the company “One of the most fitness-centric devices this year at CES was from mainstay Garmin, but it’s the first time the brand has brought music integration to a watch, and the news was very welcome. The Forerunner 645 Music is a fully fledged running watch – something the company specializes in and usually succeeds in making – but this time you’re able to upload tracks and listen to them via a Bluetooth headset, or even stream using Deezer (or iHeart Radio in the US).” This new space will contribute a large amount to the rest of the wearable industry as time goes on.
