The question about wearable technology isn’t about when it will become part of our lives, but how.

I say, ‘might,’ because no one will force you to use these products. And as we’ve pointed out before, wearable technology raises many questions, just as implantable technology does.

And considering that a $5 Casio watch is just as much a technological device as an iWatch, being against wearable technology for the sake of it being wearable technology is a weak argument.
The real question, I see, is seeing what we do with the technology that is important.
