Discover smart location technology for wearables

Within the next five years, wearables will play a broader role in the field of connected consumer devices. The latest ABI Report states that in 2021 there will be over 800 million wearables, of which over 150 million will be smart watches. The key trends shaping wearables are lower-cost, miniaturized computational power, low power consumption, smart sensors including location sensors, and connectivity.

HERE technology enables wearables to be location-aware with mapping, routing, geocoding, search, navigation, traffic, or public transit services. HERE technology then provides more accurate and faster positioning of your wearables regardless of whether your device is GNSS-enabled, connected to a cellular network, or able to read surrounding Wi-Fi spots.


Location-aware wearables provide users with quick and deep real-time insights, such as current pace or distance run in fitness wristbands, or real-time location tracking for pet owners.
