So, we have to admit – fashion tech is here to stay. With the incoming plethora of smart watches, wireless earbuds and bio-tracking fitness gadgets, wearables have finally moved away from their bulky finish, and towards a sleeker variety of sizes, styles and finishes.
Here’s our top five list of existing and upcoming wearables that we can’t wait to get our hands on:
OK, so let us begin to say that we are so excited that FINALLY stylish smart jewellery is entering the market. Ringly makes a semi-precious smart ring for iOS and Android which vibrates and lights up a small LED when you get alerts. Totally customizable in which alerts get sent to you (ahem – you can finally ignore those messages you can’t get away from when on your phone – boys beware), we love how sleek and simple in design these rings are.
If an Apple Watch has been out of your budget, then these super cute smart gadgets certainly provide a refreshing alternative to rummaging around for loose change. Each item contains a small bPay contactless chip that is linked to a secure digital wallet, which can be topped up via a mobile app or automatically when funds fall below a pre-set level. The only catch – the gadgets are currently only available in the UK, but we have our fingers crossed that they’ll make it to Canada soon!
How many times have you awkwardly used your iPhone as a mirror? We definitely have and it’s not always pretty. So, here a gadget that provides a high end solution for impromptu mirror needs. MirraMirra is a slim fit, durable iPhone case with a high-end mirror and backing lights, and can we just say they are actually SO chic – the mirrors come in a nice variety of colours, including our favourite – white marble.
So this blew our minds – Project Jacquard enables technology in a fabric that’s specially woven with conductive thread, which allows it to act as an interactive touchpad. For a better understanding of this, simply watch this video and prepare to be mindblown.
Michael Kors is often known to design watches that appeal to people who like a little more bling, but we can totally get down with these. Kors is the first big fashion name to release a smartwatch collection and we’re impressed. Oh, not to mention the variety sleek designs made for BOTH men and women.
