CES 2014: CES wearable tech includes onesie to track baby's breath

1:50 /

A look at earbuds that detect your heart rate and a headset that listens to your every command. CNET's Sumi Das rounds up wearable devices at CES 2014 in Las Vegas.

-Get ready to clear out a corner of your closet. At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, companies showed off wearable tech for our wrists, our ears, and more. -The Mimo monitor proves you're never too young to start using a wearable device. This onesie incorporates sensors that track a baby's breathing, temperature, and body position. -The sensor here is our new respiration sensor. It actually looks at the rise and fall of the chest. -Thankfully, this tech is not just wearable, but also machine-washable. Of the many wrist-worn gadgets, a couple stood out. -Casio Sports Gear aims to be a more versatile smartwatch. The function of the buttons can be changed depending on what you're doing. Say, you're listening to music. The buttons can be used to skip tracks. And if you're going for a run, the buttons can be used to start or stop your workout. -Another handy feature? This fine button. Press it, and your phone starts chirping. The Razer Nabu is part fitness tracker, part smartwatch. Built-in gesture recognition also means you can follow someone on Twitter by just shaking their hand. Wearable gadgets developed by Intel included these biometric ear buds that use an optical sensor to measure your heart rate, and a smart headset code-named Jarvis. -Jarvis is actually always gonna be listening, and can be set to different modes where it will provide data on the fly or will listen to you. -The great thing about Jarvis is that it kinda takes away that-- the pain of having to take your phone out to talk to Siri or, you know, Google Voice or whatever. Jarvis is a headset. It's always on, it's in your ears, always listening. So, all you have to say is "Hello, Jarvis." And then, you know, follow that with a question. -For more coverage from CES, go to CES.CNET.com. In Las Vegas, I'm Sumi Das, CNET for CBS News.
