Opinion

Is being part cyborg the new tomorrow? Wearable technology: is it going to be the downfall of the human race or the next step to advancement? The controversy of all technology is that it is ruining the personalness of community among people. We live in a world today where one chemical weapon could take out an entire country, people can not leave their house without at least one piece of technology, and kids are becoming more tech savvy than adults. I will evaluate the pros and cons to wearable technology and then my personal opinion.

My personal opinion of wearable technology is skeptical but also encouraging. I feel that there could be radiation from the technology as well as long term effects such as skin problems from wearing the watch or the glasses. I also believe that there is always room for improvements. It just needs people to invest into it. Hands-free is going to be the future and these watches and glasses are what is the first step forward.

Cons

Cons to wearable technology include data accuracy, usability barriers, and charging. First, the accuracy of wearable technology especially watches is not always accurate. The information they collect is still in a developing phase where they can only get around what is true. Secondly, there are still many aspects that need to be improved to the wearable technology category such as design, functionality, bugs, and defects. All of these improvements can ruin the market for these items and they could fail.

Pros

The first pro to wearable technology is the immediate nature of it. This generation is used to instant gratification. It is the older generation that has to accept that fact and move on about it. There needs to be adaptation to life. Wearable technology is intended to replace phones. Yes, you are glancing down at a watch every once in a while, but it is easier and faster to respond on a watch and continue on with whatever it was you were doing. Also, it is more discreet than pulling out a phone from your pocket. A meeting or discussion is meant to be uninterrupted and a watch is discreet and doesn’t interrupt what’s going on.
