Tory Burch for Fitbit Collection: The Most Fashionable Wearable Accessories Yet | GlassRoots.in
Designer Tory Burch officially launched her high-end accessory collection for the Fitbit Flex on Tuesday, bringing a stylish refresh to the unattractive fitness tracker design market.

While fitness trackers become increasingly popular, their bands have developed a reputation for having a cheap, rubbery look. To make the technology nighttime ready and more like jewelry than something you’d wear to the gym, Tory Burch worked with the company to develop four accessories that house the Fitbit’s core, which pops out of the wristband. The core is where the device houses its sensors that track activity, sleep cycle and so on.

Despite all the buzz surrounding wearables, it isn’t clear who’s supposed to be buying them. Fewer than half of the respondents to a recent Accenture survey said they would consider buying a smartwatch, and even the most optimistic experts predict only 20 million smartwatch sales this year, a pittance compared with phone and tablet sales. The market’s skepticism might be a function of how early smartwatches fared (few lasted more than a year or two before being pulled from shelves). But more likely is that today’s smartwatches remain mysterious, somewhat redundant gadgets.

The Android Wear Review: Google's Vision Of A Smartwatch Is A Tantalizing Look Into The Future
With the release of the Samsung Gear Live and the LG G Watch, anyone can pick up an Android Wear device and partake in Google’s vision of the future. It is far from complete, but even with this first public iteration, the direction that Google would like wearable computing to evolve is clear.

The vision Google has puts all the services provided by the digital behemoth at the center of your personal universe. Android Wear is an extension of your smartphone (which of course needs to be running a relatively modern version of Android) and you need to be fully connected to the digital world so Android Wear can work its predictive and alerting magic.
