Sharjah24 – Reuters: From preventing accidents at work to improving your golf swing, advances in wearable technology were on display at the Wearable Technology Show in London.
Visitors of the show all agree that wearable technology is always evolving, and some of the very latest ideas have been on display at this recent tech show in London that included everything from a device to help prevent accidents at work, to this garment for golfers to improve their swing.

"You might be asking yourself 'why does anybody need to know that much information about their swing?' But when you are operating at the professional or the elite athlete levels, even the most marginal gains could have the biggest benefit. It could make the difference between winning and losing a tournament," said Trine Hindklev, chiefe marketing officer of Guided Knowledge.

She showed the device that includes 18 sensors that are worn on the garment under the golfer's clothing and they monitor the swing motion. The sensors connect to an app which generates a 3D avatar of the player and their performance.

Around 300 exhibitors where showcased at the recent Wearable Technology show, now in its sixth year.
