Fashion Meets Tech: The New Wave of Wearables

 

With the recent launch of Spectacles by Snap Inc. (formerly Snapchat), wearables may have finally shed the dorky image of the (in)famous Google Glass and become something consumers actually want to wear. Here is a brief list of other stylish wearables you might want to add to your wardrobe. All prices converted to CAD.

Smartwatches and fitness trackers have exploded onto the market in the last few years, but a common complaint is that they’re not pretty enough to wear out. Pebble’s Time Round won’t force you to choose between style and losing your step count.

This one isn’t strictly for humans, but who can resist this cute (and smart) pet collar? Not only does it track your pet’s location using GPS, it monitors activity, temperature, and possible collisions. Best of all, the Nuzzle sends all the information directly to your phone for free.

The Nuzzle is preparing to launch after a successful Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.

Not a fan of wearing a watch? You can wear smart jewelry from Ringly instead. Ringly has a range of rings and bracelets that, in addition to looking good, track your activity and send you important notifications. With a range of semiprecious stones like black onyx, lapis, and labradorite, these pieces are as beautiful as everyday jewelry but do so much more.
