From Smartphone-Inspired Watches to Page-Flipping Eyewear

 - Oct 25, 2013
Wearable tech is made with consumer convenience in mind. While it's easy to check your smartphone for new emails and texts as well as browsing the web, companies are creating ways for technology to literally be a part of you.

Instead of taking the time to find your phone in your purse or pocket, there are now tech gadgets that double as fashion pieces. For example, if you're someone who loves Instagram but doesn't have your phone out during a picture perfect moment, you should definitely get Instaglasses. These glasses provide people with the ability to switch on a camera on their glasses with a button on the side of the frame.

Further, for people on the go, smart watches will definitely make lives easier. Smart watches are being designed by a variety of companies such as Google, Apple and Samsung, and wearers can actually get notifications of texts and emails right to their watch.

While wearable tech is offering simplicity to consumers, it's also opening doors for new innovations within tech and fashion companies, as well as creating a bridge between the two.
