Why 2017 Is the Year of the Smartwatch

We’d be the first to acknowledge we’d have a true “this is the end” moment of panic without some kind of tech device tethered to our person. After all, our shiny collections of gadgets serve a purpose, and that’s to make life a little more convenient and a touch (or tap) easier to navigate work, play, and everything in between. The ultimate goal, however, is for our devices to enrich our lives and allow us to live them better. And since cold-turkey unplugging isn’t always an option when we’re feeling a bit overloaded, we’re always on the lookout for alternatives that let us wear our tech and live our lives too.
