It seems that tech gadgets evolve at the speed of light. Every year, the latest and greatest are captured and showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Here are the 3 top tech trends from CES 2014 that were the buzz at SXSW Interactive 2014.

1. Wearable technology. Exercise trackers for health and fitness—from wristbands to apparel—are everywhere.

2. Home automation. Companies like Nest have created “smart” thermostats that are able to learn user behavior to help save energy lowering heating and cooling bills.

3. Ultra HD. With sharper video and 4 times the resolution of current HDTVs, these HDs are pushing the limits of picture quality.

What do these trends mean for the world of wellness? Devices that help us learn about our own behavior will ultimately help us pursue new approaches in education and support for both healthcare professionals and patients.
