Nex Evolution Is Disrupting The Wearables Space By Bringing Technology To GenZ

Small, sleek, and adjustable, the Nex band invites you to hack the world around you. 

Generation Z, is the forgotten the generation when it comes to wearables, and you can quote me on that! Linked to technology from day one, I find it quite interesting that tech companies and innovative startups have not found relevance in focusing a little bit of attention on a generation that is growing up with social media, smart phones and apps. “Millennials brought technology into the cultural focus and have pushed other generations to use technology.  However, there are Millennials that can remember using dial up or even a life before social media“, said Meagan Johnson, a generational expert, speaker and author of From Boomers to Linksters: Managing the Friction Between Generations at Work. This is why we think Mighty Cast, the creators of Nex, might just be onto something.

Wearables

Nex is the brainchild of CEO of Mighty Cast, Adam Adelman. It is a smart band that launched last month. Hackable and customizable, it is a Wearable Tech bracelet that has been designed to compliment the GenZ and Millennial demographic. Described as “gaming and social platform that pushes up against the wearable space”, Nex has 5 programmable buttons that users can “hack” to create new smart band experiences every day, hour, or minute. “Whether it be double tapping to open your garage, turning your band into a spotify controller, dropping a pin to mark your location, DJing a party, or lighting up in celebration every time your team scores a run, it only takes a second or two to program, or hack, your band”, Adelman told FashNerd.
Wearable Tech

When it comes to connectivity, Nex is compatible with iOS and Android smart phones. To connect via Bluetooth 4.0 you need to download the app. The Nex App provides an interface that breaks down the barrier between you and technology by becoming the experience that you want it to be, every day, every hour, whenever you want.

Generation Z

The sensors and components of the Nex band include haptic feedback, for discreet notifications and an Axis Accelerometer that will track your steps, calories, or distance to that next gaming hotspot. Nex also brags multi-colored LEDs designed to light up your day with over 50 animated light patterns. The great thing is that you can create your own patterns through Nex’s Light Pattern Editor and share emoji light patterns that express how you are feeling.

Made of high-performance polycarbonate the durable and waterproof- water resistant up to 3ATM- the device will definitely attract the attention of both the Millennial Generation and Generation Z. Priced a kind of affordable $79.99, the Nex has a battery life that lasts up to 3 days and a charge time of 2 to 3 hours.  With great things being said about this latest wearables, we look forward to reviewing this device soon. Watch this space! If you cannot wait, you can Shop Nex Band (Evolution) now.
