What Is a Wearable Computer?

Wearable technology includes any technology that connects to the internet via a wireless network whilst attached to your body. This could be your wrist, around the neck, on a headband, or any other body part or piece of worn clothing. They were initially manufactured for use in warehouses to give staff members the same freedom as mobile computers but with increased ease.

The features of wearable computers differ from brand to brand, but generally, they are small devices fitted your body or clothing. Usually, they are built to be durable and can be dropped, bashed, or knocked around without causing any damage, which is perfect for a warehouse environment.

Wearable computers are a fantastic choice for people working in warehouses, and GSM Barcoding can provide you with exactly what you need.

The Benefits of Wearable Computers

Wearable computers are advantageous for a variety of reasons, particularly for warehouse staff members. Let’s take a look at a few of their benefits:

  • Increased Productivity. Because of the efficiency offered by wearable technology, productivity in the warehouse is increased. Staff no longer need to stop to pick up and put down their computers while completing their daily tasks, and some wearable computer vendors even claim that they can increase productivity by 30%.
  • Improved Safety. Employees hands are not occupied by holding a device, leaving them free to give the task at hand their full attention. This increases the safety in the warehouse as staff members won’t be trying to carry multiple items alongside their computer – reducing the chances of dropping items or being unable to catch themselves if they fall.
  • Convenience. Overall, wearable computers are much more convenient for warehouse staff due to the reasons discussed, such as carrying multiple items at once without worrying about carrying a device.
  • Cost Reductions. Due to the speed that wearable computers provide, labour costs could be reduced as more work can be completed in a shorter amount of time. Additionally, because of the rugged, durable materials used to make wearable technology, there will be less need to upgrade equipment and pay for damage repairs.
  • Decrease in Human Error. As mentioned, wearable computers allow for staff member’s hands to be free. Because of this, they will be more focused and able to concentrate on each task, leading to the decline of human error.
