Here’s our round-up of some of the most interesting wearables from CES Unveiled.
CES Unveiled Wearables Roundup
If you haven’t heard of InBody yet, you will. InBody has spent years focusing on body composition analyzers and has introduced at CES wearable technology that does just that and more. Fashionable and stylish, the InBody Band can track your body fat, muscle mass and measure your body fat percentage.
It utilizes four sensors that allow you to combine data to get the results. While Jawbone’s UP3 seeks to introduce similar technology whenever they get around to releasing it, InBody has the advantage with the technology behind their band that’s been the forefront of their mission for over two decades.

The Zensorium Being, paired with an app, can track your mood. Yes, it’s a wearable that doubles as a mood ring on your wrist. It’s a mood watch. The Being is sleek, comes in two colors (gold and gunmetal) and will retail for $199 at full price. While you may be wondering why you’d spend $200 on a mood watch, tracking your moods throughout the day can be a great way to monitor other aspects of your life, such as stress levels.
The Being monitors your heart rate and blood pressure, alerting you to periods of high stress and elevation. Zensorium reps explained that they’ve worked with neuroscientists to get accurate results when the Being is worn in contact with your skin, so it’ll be interesting to see if this has any practical use in the wearables market.

On first glance, the Logbar Ring looks like an engagement ring gone wrong. It’s large, bulky and has a bit of bling but otherwise, it leaves you wondering what you are looking at. However, the Ring is a different kind of wearable. With gestures, while wearing it, you can control everything from your smart TV to Google Glass.
This Kickstarter-funded product can text for you, learning how you write letters with your fingers for accurate results. Its like a magic ring on your finger that understands your commands and makes various gadget do stuff for you.

Polar is confident that athletes will find the V800 intriguing and have staged a Las Vegas-style iron triathlon featuring Tim Don. While the V800 might not be the wearable the average consumer invests in, for athletes or those who like to push themselves to the limit, this is one to watch.
