This week in lifelogging: Starting the new year right and achieving your new year resolutions with quantified self 1

Goodbye 2013! Hello 2014!

2013 was a breakthrough year for fans of wearable gadgets and the quantified self movement. We saw increasing focus in the area of wearable technology and observed several important milestones like Android being now Bluetooth Smart ready, Intel unveiling a chip specifically designed for wearable applications, Samsung introducing a smart watch to accompany its phones,  and Sony even launching the 2nd edition of their smartwatch, just to name a few.

While some may argue that the wearable technology industry is getting saturated, we think the wearable technology industry will grow exponentially in 2014, as companies work to refine their products to provide a better user experience.  With Forbes dubbing 2014 “The Year of Wearable Technology” and increasing focus of wearable technology at CES , we are really excited to see how much wearable technology will impact our lives in 2014!

Do you intend to incorporate wearable gadgets into your life this year? If so, what are you looking to buy? Drop us a comment here!
