Introduced by musician and entrepreneur will.i.am, PULS is a smartband that marries technology and fashion. PULS offers cool social media features with a GPS system, pedometer and accelerometer.
Samsung’s stylish smartwatch offers a full set of communication features, a fitness monitor and the ability to load third party apps for even more fun.

Hexoskin’s sensor-packed shirt monitors cardiac, respiratory and activity data, making it easier for people to monitor their fitness on the go. Though fitness trackers dominated the wearable tech market in 2014, we expect sensor-embedded clothing to become much more popular in the coming year.
Continuing the trend of merging wearables with fashion, Fit Bit teamed up with Tory Burch to create a chic fitness tracking pendant necklace that even fashionistas will want to wear.
