Wearable Translator supports real-time speech conversion.

The device is not connected to any type of internet connection so it does not drain the battery and hence has a good battery life.
The primary driver for the wearable translator is the need for real-time translation of one language to other to improve end-user experience. Furthermore, a rapid increase in offline memory development to fulfill escalating customer requirements will also contribute to the growth of wearable Translator market. Some other advantages like good battery life, voice activation, more than 50,000 words and phrases offline recognition, updates on different languages, easy switching of languages and many other make it a market going out for.

The new languages for the devices have to be bought for use.
