Fitness bands and devices are massively popular (I am a major offender), but that may come under pressure from other wearable tech soon (translation: smart watches). Perhaps one of those little devices will turn up as a gift for you around this time of year.
I just noticed this Fitbit gamification badge pop up in my email. Very nice to be encouraged sure, but I am not so sure that this really reflects what Africa is about. You may have a view about this. Find the comments, if so.
Perhaps, the topic of wearable technology and the localization of its various components and methods will be one for 2015’s conferences, blogs, articles, and so on.
