If you ask someone what they think about smartwatches, you’re likely to get one of two answers: Either they’re the next big thing in consumer tech, or they’re a ridiculous ploy by big tech companies to “connect” yet another analog holdout.
Smartwatches are exactly what they sound like: wristwatches with enhanced, connected functionality. You can browse notifications, receive e-mails or even talk on the phone. Basically, it’s a Dick Tracy watch.
But unlike smartphones or tablets, smartwatches are “wearable tech,” meaning they must aspire to a degree of style and comfort not required of other gadgets.
