The 2015 International CES witnessed some of the biggest innovations in different verticals. Wearable technology turned out to be a trend of the event. CES was the place to be, whether you were looking for a VR headset, a fitness tracker or a smartwatch. The gamut of wearable tech products on display, ranged from useful to innovative to even entertaining. Smartwatches that were unveiled at the CES can give a tough competition to the ones which are already in the market.
Here is a quick look at some of the wearables which were showcased at the CES this year.
- Sony Smartwatch 3
The Sony Smartwatch 3 didn’t appeal to many when it released last fall. But this year, it has come with a new edition which has lost the plastic body and has upgraded to a square look. The Sony smartwatch comes with an inbuilt GPS for Sony’s Lifelog fitness software and sports apps. The wearable will also have a set of apps like Golfshot and iFit pre-installed in it.
