Wearable technology comes in many different forms whether it's Google Glass or the highly-anticipated Moto 360 smart watch.
What they offer is undeniably attractive; futuristic technologies like augmented reality and near-field communications mean that they'll know where you are and what's around you.
Fitness trackers have come a long way from being humble step counters; able to read your heartbeat, show you your emails and track how you sleep they've become virtual information hubs that sit on your wrist or clip onto your belt.
Through software such as Android Wear we're enabling our wearable technology to become contextually intelligent; knowing when we're having dinner and when we've left work.
