TECH MEETS FASH­ION

THISDAY Style - - STYLE & DESIGN - BY FUNKE BABS-KUFEJI

Gone are the days when tech­nol­ogy was just for a cho­sen few. To­day, ev­ery­one has ac­cess to smart­phones, wire­less head­sets, tablets and so much more. While wear­ables are ar­guably not as stylish as man­u­fac­tur­ers hoped, there have been some ex­cep­tions. Many de­sign­ers have col­lab­o­rated with tech com­pa­nies to come up with prod­ucts that in­cor­po­rate tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vance­ments. And now more and more com­pa­nies have cre­ated their own wear­able tech de­signs that ap­peal to fash­ion girls. Check out some of our favourites tech wear­ables right now.

FNNH KATE SPADE NEW YORK SMART WATCH BELLABEAT: Be­lieve it or not, this pretty pen­dant can ac­tu­ally track your ac­tiv­ity, sleep and even heart rate. It records ev­ery­thing in an app. With no screens or but­tons, this wear­able can pass as a piece of jew­elry. The leaf can be worn as a neck­laces or bracelet. It is also made of hy­poal­ler­genic stain­less steel. GEMIO: This unique ban­gle re­sponds to your ev­ery move thanks to its 24 dif­fer­ent coloured LED lights. Us­ing Blue­tooth, the lights can be synced to mu­sic in a club and pulse to the beat. You can also sync with a friend, tak­ing friend­ship bracelets to a whole new level. FIT­BIT: Is a pop­u­lar work­out tracker, but the Alta HR does more than count your steps. It keeps track of your heart rate, sleep­ing habits and even re­minds you about calls and texts. With its slim de­sign, it doesn’t look like a fit­ness tracker just one of your bracelets. MOTIV: Most fit­ness track­ers are worn like a bracelet or even an arm band. This wear­able is dif­fer­ent be­cause it is worn on your finger. Avail­able in two colours, the ring is de­signed to be worn dis­creetly on your finger so you can per­form ac­tiv­i­ties as usual with­out get­ting dis­tracted by a gad­get on your arm or leg. You’ll prob­a­bly for­get to take it off.
