From Fitness-Tracking Timepieces to Car-Controlled Chronographs

By: Amelia Roblin - Jan 12, 2015
Convenience and the reluctance to part with one's personal devices have lead to a surge in wearable technology. These smartwatches from CES 2015 demonstrate an exciting range of possibilities for wonderfully compact and accessible gadgets that can do absolutely amazing things.

Wristwatches that double as health and fitness trackers are on the rise, and well as those that integrate everything from your text messages and phone calls to your social media apps. A couple of this year's innovations are targeted at drivers, enabling them to drop pins where they park, to unlock their doors, and even to start their engines remotely. As far as appearances are concerned, there are plenty of options. Smooth and fuss-free bands, analog-style timepieces and smartphone-resembling chronometers are all available to consumers.
