IoT You Can Wear
This year, we learned that the Internet of Things is much more personal than connected homes or smart cities -- consumers can use connected devices straight from their own wrists.
While in the past wearables took the shape of smartwatches, such as the Apple Watch or Samsung Gear S2, this year vendors showed off new functions for connected devices -- including a smart ring and smart helmet.
Now, consumers can use wearables to track their own activity and health, to translate foreign languages while traveling, and to play virtual reality games. Following are some of the coolest wearables CRN has seen so far in 2016.
