BERLIN—The IFA show floor here was full of wearables, from smartwatches to headphones, glasses, and more.
But with designer brands like Michael Kors and Puma unveiling their first fitness-centric smartwatches, it’s clear athleisure was the trend this year. From the sleek Garmin Venu that tracks metrics like respiration and sweat loss, to the Asus VivoWatch SP, which comes with an ECG and PPG sensor in a more refined, practical form factor, it looks like the days of choosing between accuracy and design are behind us.
And of course, along the way, we also saw wearables that are worn in places other than the wrist—including Adidas’ new over-the-ear headphones and TCL’s wearable display concept. While wading through all the devices was quite the task, we narrowed it down to 12 wearables we thought were the most noteworthy.
