Abstract: Wearable computing is considered the next big thing. The market represents billions of dollars of investments. Samsung, Google, and other companies aggregate part of this market with the release of new gadgets such as smartwatches and smartglasses. Other startups emerged in the last years and made available devices such as Fitbit and ReconJet. On the other hand, users are losing the interest on wearable devices due to the low quality of applications and the restricted value o ered by them. We did a study about the role of wearable devices and its integration. In our ndings, the dependency and low processing capabilities of the devices contribute to the scenario. The goal of this work is to introduce a new way to build and design wearable devices and systems. We propose the de nition of the terms \Wearable Accessory" and \Smart Wearable" as a new classi cation of wearable devices, systems, and applications. Our characterization was done by the development of two smart wearable devices. In our methodology, we demonstrate the design until the user experience evaluation to build these devices. Our ndings consider some current limitation of these devices and users expectations. Two applications addressed to the ecological scenarios are the secondary contribution of this work. Also, challenges and future work to improve the proposed concept and user experience with wearable devices are discussed.
