Factor Magazine Issue 11: Wearable Technology

Issue 11 of Factor magazine out now for iPad and online – free as always – and this month we’re turning our attention to wearable technology.

With many false starts and solutions search for a problem, wearable technology is still finding its feet. We look at the technologies and trends that are shaping the future of wearables, and the potential impact the devices could have.

We speak to Misfit CEO about “Wearables 2.0”, look at how they are being used in professional sports and consider the dangers of ever-present self-monitoring. We also look at the new breed of wearables hidden in plain sight and find out what’s stopping fashion and wearables from becoming friends.
