The upgraded version of the Google Glass 2 has lots of improved features in it, which could make life easy like hell. The person who will wear Google Glass 2 won’t be any lesser than a spy, featuring in a science fiction movie.

The Sony Corp (ADR) (NYSE:SNE) has its name registered too in the list with its gadget name Sony core, which is also a wrist band. It is pretty similar to that of the LG, but still has lots of difference.
The Core band comes loaded with an android application called Lifelog, which allows the users to scroll their history to and fro on a side timeline. The main motto of the Sony Core band is to keep you informed about your physical actions, activities, life events and lifestyle too.
