Design agency Fjord helps us wade through the growing marketplace for wearable tech.

If any trend is having a moment right now, it would be wearable tech. The phrase is more than just a buzzword; from Google Glass to Samsung's fitness bands, we have seen a proliferation of hundreds of different devices that track almost every bodily data point possible. Take Chris Dancy, for example, widely considered to be the “most connected man in the world.” He uses between 300-700 different systems every day to capture data on his life (and his pets') in real time, from a Pebble smartwatch to a Memoto camera. However, for us wearable tech novices, it can be overwhelming to try to wade through every new device and every body part that can possibly be tracked.
