The 5 Hottest Things in Wearable Tech

NEW YORK TheStreet

Move over tablets, "wearable tech" is buzzing in the tech world right now. The latest computers don't require you to lift a finger. People are getting tired of looking at their phones countless times a day, so technology is making it so you don't have to. Leave that phone in your bag.

The rise of mobile phones caused many to stop wearing watches. Now "smart watches" are incorporating smartphone features for your wrist.

And then, of course, there are fitness gadgets that help you track activity. The latest devices also monitor sleeping habits and promote healthy eating. It's all about the "quantified self" these days, venture capitalists tell me. At least that's where the money's heading.
