Currently, more smartphones are sold than conventional phones. In their years of existence, they have multiplied their possibilities, created new industries, and led advances in consumer electronics. They have also become the center of communication and personal leisure.
Now, a new generation of devices: glasses, watches, bracelets, or rings, all labeled as smart, aim to take advantage of these capabilities and take them one step further. They call them "wearable technologies," technologies that are worn, like a garment or an accessory. The truth is that this new wave of devices seeks to change the consumer market and the business one.
Although this technology seems inaccessible and not very applicable to companies, free wearables are freely programmable for companies to work on the properties and objectives they want to generate.
Still, the big business of wearables is data. Although these data belong to the users, certain information, not sensitive and with the consent of the person, is read by companies to generate efficient decision-making, understand the user, and improve products:
The main characteristics of these wearable devices are:
Here are some of the services that Hyperlink InfoSystem provides that have to do with wearable devices. Contact us today, and we will help you out.
We carry out a usability study for the design and development of your mobile application so that the user experience is much more practical and intuitive. UX (User Experience) + UI (User Interface) Design.
We have a team of experts in Native and Hybrid development, using languages such as swift, Kotlin, PhoneGap, Ionic, Xamarin, and so on to give mobile applications the best performance in their different variants such as iOS and Android.
After the development and production of your app, new needs may arise that are accompanied by your company's growth. We are always available to implement the necessary updates.
If you have a successful app, periodic maintenance is necessary to debug that data saturation that takes away mobile devices' performance.
Through a rigorous analysis of your company's needs, we develop tools in your mobile application to save time and money in all processes.
To begin with, the development itself is carried out in the same environment and the same language as the development of an application for the other OS devices. But the toolkit has its own characteristics. 90% of these differences boil down to simplification: the tools are much smaller and more limited in functionality. First, you need to decide on the operating system on which the application will run. The choice will depend on the functions included in the application. So, Apple watches work well with Internet requests. And in the case of Android Wear, it is sometimes easier to turn to a smartphone to fulfill such a request.
But this does not mean that any developer can start creating a smartwatch application without preparation. Provided that the same environment and language are used, the toolkit and the approach to design (Guidelines) and UX are different.
Hyperlink InfoSystem is a leading wearable app development agency in the UK. With the development of tons of wearable apps with functionality ranging from simple to complex, we are best suited to develop apps for your company. We have experts in different aspects of wearable app development. Our attention to detail ensures that we excel in all our projects and have excellent customers' ratings. We are always evolving, and we use the best technologies for every project.
The best-known wearable is the smartwatch, which is placed on the wrist like any watch, and with which you can download and use applications, receive emails, notifications, listen to music, answer voice messages and have a GPS.
There are wearables or bracelets exclusively intended to record the health of those who wear it. It is possible to different measurements with them such as the heart rate, perform electrocardiograms, record the temperature, glucose level, oxygen in the blood, among other things.
There are also wearables for athletes –in the form of bracelets or added to clothing or footwear– that measure the steps taken, pulse, sleep, which collect statistics on the exercises performed, among other functions; Glasses are another wearable option that can take pictures, record videos, receive and send voice messages, and serve as assisted reality for the blind.
In the industrial sector, wearables are used by employees to receive and send information to a control center or automated program from their work area. The intention of the industrial use of wearables is to have connected employees, that is, to create a structure where objects and workforce at all levels are linked by a connectivity that allows everything to flow back and forth. This improves the general operation of the company.
The goal of wearables in an industry is to create direct and effective communication between executives and employees. It is possible to send instructions, notify work orders, generate security alarms, exchange information about jobs and processes that are being carried out and supervise projects through them. All these can be done without the need for employees and managers to have to meet physically. Our developers at Hyperlink InfoSystem can help you with wearable app development.
