Re: Is GoPro wearable device?

@_hm, it's interesting you ask if GoPro is wearable. Of course it is, at least in my book. You wear it, your device comes with wifi and it has software to get connected to your smartphone. On the other hand, I bet you would agree that Google Glass is 'wearable.' So, what's the difference? With Google Glass, you can push and pull information with the cloud. GoPro is designed to push data to the cloud. But my point is, if you are asking people to 'wear' any device, its wearability should come with distinct purpose. Fitbit does. Glucose meter does. GoPro does.

Is GoPro wearable device?

It is little difficult for me to classify GoPro camera as wearable device. Yes, it is an accessories to sprot and very useful at that. But so many other devices are in that category.

It is not very well defined, but wearable devices are little different from that - I guess. Let us wait for Apple to to define it for us. I hope this time they too do not fumble.
