Abstract

Wearable technologies comprise a large variety of electronic devices that are suitable to wear on the human body. These technologies were considered initially as an isolated consumer product but are now more and more designed as a component of a set of systems based on the Internet of Things (IoT) concept, where the design of the user experience based on high connectivity, is so critical. The aim of this paper is to formulate a set of new design principles specifically for highly connected wearables. This research work focuses on the conceptual design phase, specifying a set of activities devoted to new product concepts generation, testing, and selection. An overview of technological challenges in wearables design is first presented. Based on these features and challenges, 9 Design Principles were developed. Practical guidance aimed at providing a fluent human-device interaction are proposed. A methodology, describing the order of application of the Principles is also proposed. An analogy of the given Design Principles with an existing design model for the IoT domain is also presented.
