At the same time, with the continuous development of technology, consumers are paying more and more attention to a healthy lifestyle. The demand for functional and intelligent wearable devices is also increasing. 


With the continuous development of science and technology, the technology of wearable devices is also constantly improving, such as smart chips, sensors and other technologies, making wearable devices more practical and multi-functional. 


With the development of the smart home industry, the integration of wearable devices and smart homes is also increasing. For example, smart watches can be used in conjunction with smart home devices, further expanding the market demand for wearable devices. 


On the technology front, China’s wearable device technology continues to improve.  Functions of smart bracelets have become more advanced including step counting, sleep monitoring, heart rate monitoring and other functions, as well as more smart home control functions. Moreover, the popularization of 5G networks promises accelerated data transmission speeds and heightened connectivity, further propelling the adoption of wearable devices across China. 


Wearable smart devices generally have the characteristics of low power consumption, lightweight, hands-free, timely reminder, intelligent perception, etc., and provide consumers with exclusive and personalized services. With the development of the Internet of Things and 5G, wearable smart devices will rapidly become popular and will become a new hotspot for mobile application terminals and an important entrance to the Internet of Things industry.
