Like it or not, there’s no avoiding technology these days.
From the minute we get up in the morning to when we go to bed at night, we’re catching up with friends online, doing our shopping online and tracking our workouts online.
It’s getting easier every day to incorporate technology into your daily activities and wearable devices are one of our favourite developments.
Whether you’re all about the fitness or want to stay on top of your emails at all times, these babies will make your life much easier.
This stunning Apple Watch dispels the myth that wearable technology has to look ugly or bulky – we’d happily wear this without all the great features! You can answer calls, check the weather, monitor your heart rate, reply to texts, make transactions with Apple Pay and loads more.
