As wearable technologies like smart headphones and watches are gaining popularity, around 82 per cent adults in India have started using them for work-related activities, says a PTI report, citing a recent Kronos 'Wearables at Work' study.
As per the study, a whopping 82 per cent of adults in India have worn technologies such as headsets, smart badges and bar-code scanners for work-related activities.
Joyce Maroney, Director, The Workforce Institute, Kronos told PTI: "There's a strong belief that wearable technology will take off in the workplace before the home because devices such as smart watches, intelligent ID badges, and fitness and health monitors can provide organisations with uncharted data collection points to greatly improve safety, productivity, collaboration, and overall workplace effectiveness."
Maroney further told PTI that while more and more types of wearable technologies have hit the market, the concept of wearables at work is not new.
