Summary:
The top venture capitalists at the digital SXSW conference in Austin, Texas believe wearable technology will see most of its growth in the medical field. While fitness wearables have taken off and thousands have been sold, the medical field has the promise for the most innovation. Investors talked excitedly about devices that warned of impending seizures or technology that measures brain trauma -- even a product that monitors an aging parent has great potential.

Wearable Technology Is Going To The Dogs With Voyce

Wearable Technology Is Going To The Dogs With Voyce

TheStreet (June 25, 2014) — Wearable technology has gone to the dogs. No, really, Voyce has designed a wearable device for dogs that measures a range of key vital signs like heart rate and respiratory rate. The device also tracks the dog's sleeping patterns and activity levels. Voyce's online tool that displays the data also provides a library of information if you have questions about your dog's vital signs. The collar is lightweight and not much heavier or bigger than a normal collar. Unfortunately, it doesn't say what your dog is thinking, but our guess is that he just wants another treat or go for a walk. Video provided by TheStreet
