One (Seriously) Simple Tech Update for a Less Hectic New Year

Tech advancements have become our greatest champion on being regularly and constantly informed. We don’t have to physically stay at the office to pathologically check emails throughout the night, nor must we look further than our fitness trackers to get a sense of how active (or not) we’ve been on any given day. We have devices to track our sleep, tablets to keep us entertained on the go, and there’s no way we’re going anywhere without our smartphones.

We’re clearly more efficient and connected than we’ve ever been before—but now we’re literally weighed down by having to lug around so many devices. Which is why the rise of smartwatches feels like such a good thing: Fossil’s chic Fossil Q smartwatch, for one, gives us the ability to listen to music, track our activity, take photos, and stay connected to emails without feeling so tethered to a bag full of screens (not to mention a tangle of chargers).

Got a few spare minutes? Keep reading to learn why you need to invest in your first smartwatch (or pick up a new one, if you’re already on board).
