Smart jewelry is a subcategory of wearable devices. Compared with conventional jewelry, smart jewelry has advantages such as beautified appearance, wearability, and practicability. As an emerging category, smart jewelry has attracted much attention from developers and consumers, but it is still at an initial stage of development and is faced with arduous difficulties and challenges. This paper analyzes the consumption characteristics and market performance of smart jewelry products and focuses on the innovation strategies of smart jewelry products in the future. How can developers diversify the functions of jewelry with wearable computing technology and actively seek for difference and change under existing conditions? The innovation of smart jewelry products shall center on the users and the new thought of future development shall be explored starting from cross thinking, scene innovation, and blur boundary so as to find out the new relationship between smart jewelry and humans and provide the reference for developers. With the development of science and technology in the future, miniaturization and diversity will make the boundary between smart jewelry and conventional jewelry increasingly indistinct, and wearable computing will enrich the interaction mode between humans and jewelry. The developers shall have more open attitudes and take “innovation” as the core driving force of product development so as to reconstruct the aesthetics and connotation of jewelry and bring more possibilities for jewelry.
