Costly Mistakes To Avoid When Developing Wearable Tech #WearableWednesday
Wearables are a massively expanding industry. If you are planning on bringing a wearable device to market you would be wise to heed some advice. Forbes has this list from a panel of Technology Experts on what to avoid.
The growth of wearable technology has resulted in an increase in the development of wearable apps. However, developing a wearable app can be a costly undertaking. A wrong turn in development can lead to a subpar user experience, potentially dooming your app before it even gets off the ground.
Here are the all-too-common mistakes that members of Forbes Technology Council urge steering clear of, so leaders can keep their projects on budget and headed for success.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
