Most of the current state-of-the-art wearable technology is just waiting for the Apple Watch to be diminished. There is though already a new generation of startups working on wearable technology innovations that go beyond the Apple Watch and currently available wearable gadgets.

Wearable Technology is at a watershed moment. The release of the Apple Watch will change everything. What Samsung, LG and Google could not do for wearable technology, Apple is very likely to do. Apple has proven this in the past with the introduction of the iPod, the iPhone and the iPad. For good omen, maybe Apple should have kept the iWatch name.
