Review: A former Apple engineer showed me the future of wearables

Wearable devices comprise the next exciting frontier for consumer electronics. Or so we’ve been told. The sad truth is that wearables have been around for years already and we have yet to see anything truly exciting hit the market. Tech giants like Sony, Samsung and soon Apple are aggressively moving into wearables now that growth in the smartphone and tablet markets is slowing, but the pitch for these new devices — you won’t have to take your phone out of your pocket as often — isn’t exactly resonating with the general public quite yet.

Former Apple engineer pushes wearables to the next level with Moov

The Jawbone UP24 is the best fitness tracker on the market right now, hands down. The design is great, it’s accurate, the accompanying software is terrific and so far the battery hasn’t gone bad. What the UP24 is not, however, is a game-changer that shows us the future of wearables and fitness tracking. UP24, like most competing solutions, is passive. It tracks your movements and then shows you historical data. But what if there was a solution that doesn’t just show you what you have done, but also tells you what you should do.

Moov looks to become the first device to do that effectively, and it gives us a glimpse of the exciting things to come from the wearables market. More →
