I’ve always loved following tech. The emergence of the wearables market has been a fascinating one: a convergence of small form factor, low power, and high performance electronics. In particular, this market really couldn’t have happened without the smartphone industry blazing the trail, since wearables leverage multiple technologies like touch screens, accelerometers, compasses, and wireless interfaces.
And yet, I’ve been pretty reluctant to actually buy a wearable. I’m a late adopter. I’m also fairly inundated with enough tech already. So having another device to sync, charge, socially link, and generally pay attention to, wasn’t a prospect I was eager to jump into.
