‘Tis the season! It’s the most wonderful time of the year as the holidays are fast approaching. If you feel like your list to buy for is getting longer and longer, you’re not alone. Holiday shopping can add an extra stressor to the season, but we’re here to help.
A piece of wearable technology makes a great gift for any friend or family member who has you stumped on what to buy this year. Your dad who always claims this is the year he’ll get in shape? Your overly competitive brother-in-law who needs to track his every move? Your best friend who needs the extra motivation to get those steps in? Here are three reasons why everyone on your list will love unwrapping a gift of wearable technology this year.
New year, new them
Shortly after we all indulge in desserts and beverages that naturally come with the holiday season, it’s time to start thinking about New Year’s Resolutions. Consistently, year over year, getting in shape or losing weight ranks as the top resolution for individuals. The new year is a great time to rethink our priorities and put pen to paper with new goals for the new year.
Wearable technology allows users to track what matters to them. Make sure you know what’s important to the person you’re giving to. Is it the amount of steps they take each day? The elevation they’ve hiked? The amount of sleep they get each night? The amount they sweat? Whatever it is, there’s (most likely) a piece of wearable technology for them. These devices help individuals stay more in tune with him or herself which in turn allows them to set goals and stick to them.
The gift that keeps on giving
Sure, a gift card to a restaurant or a new pair of jeans will make a great gift. But once the meal is done or the jeans have faded, there’s not much left to say for them. A piece of wearable technology truly is the gift that keeps on giving as they can wear and use them for years to come. And although it may be a bit pricey our seem out of budget, you truly can’t put a price tag on these devices. An investment in a piece of wearable technology is an investment in better health and more celebrations for years to come.
A step into the future
Already, 57% of consumers use digital apps and wearables to monitor their health, and that number is only expected to rapidly grow. In fact, in August 2022, 10 million more U.S. consumers are using digital tools to maintain their physical and mental health than just nine months prior. People are catching on to the benefits of wearable technology. These devices are allowing them to take control of their own health and become an advocate for themselves. It’s even allowing them to stay more connected with friends and family and stay motivated to continue reaching new goals. Bring your loved ones into this new and rapidly growing space with a gift that will help them stay more in-tune with the digital era.
There’s so many ways to show you care. Investing in a piece of technology that will help them better themselves is one of them. This holiday season, consider giving the gift that keeps on giving through a piece of wearable technology.
If you have an athlete or worker in your life who is constantly active and on the move, they’re probably not completely in tune with their hydration. Sweat ID helps users know when and how to hydrate through a nonwoven fabric sensor that provides users with rehydration strategies based on real-time data generated by identifying the exact amount of sodium in sweat.
