Overview of the products that draw the silhouette of man connected in 2014, from head to toe.
Connected objects are not separable smartphones, which they hope to marry the growth curve and with which they interact constantly. Like Samsung, Apple, Sony or Motorola, manufacturers see electronics to carry an extension of the scope of the smartphones.
But all of these objects remain intimately linked to this central element which controls through applications and compile all of the data that they collect.
For more than two years now, builders explore the range of possibilities on a market in full quiver which should really take off with the arrival of the Apple Watch early 2015.
Meanwhile, the Motorola Moto 360, Watch R LG, the Samsung Gear S and the Sony SmartWatch 3 monopolise the top of the basket with watches marrying traditional watchmaking codes while incorporating cutting-edge technology in measurement of physical activity and health monitoring, an area where Withings caused a sensation with his disguised Activity activity sensor shows chic.

In the meantime, manufacturers there will of their proposals. Like Sony, which recently unveiled its SmartEyeGlass, the connected glasses that display a lot of information superimposed. The fields of application are numerous: tourism, military, safety, health… An area where the smart glasses could allow surgeons to access the medical data of patients in the future and where some manufacturers are working on models intended to restore sight to the blind through a complex combination of sensors, geolocation and emission of ultrasound system.
