BIG DATA IS WATCHING YOU: Nine percent of respondents said they would wear a Google Glass headset on the first date.

Newly released survey results say US Millennials are open to incorporating wearable technology in their lives, with nine percent of respondents saying they would wear a Google Glass headset on the first date.

When it comes to dating and mating, 12% of men and 9% of women said they would use wearable technology if it made them look more attractive to the opposite sex. 

If using wearables could make them appear smarter, 12% of men and 8% of women said they would do so. 

As for the general, social acceptability of wearable trackers, 16% of men said it was important to them that the device be acceptable, while only 9% of women responded the same way. 

One in four even showed willingness to wear such devices during sex.

Conducted over the Internet, the survey involved 1,007 US respondents in the "Millennial" generation, which is classified in this case as representing individuals born between 1977 and 1995. 

The research is a joint effort between the Centre for Generational Kinetics and Wearables.com. — AFP/Relaxnews 2014
