These are technologies or computers integrated into articles of clothing or accessories that can be worn. Often, the wearable tech is used to quantify a physical process (such as heartbeat monitoring) or to augment human capabilities. Wearables may also be used to control external things, for example, with gestures.

Examples include smartwatches, fitness bands, and Google Glasses.
