When you were a kid, keeping tabs on how much exercise you got that day meant noting the time you started jogging around the neighborhood as well as when you returned home. If you wanted to check your heart rate, you had to stand still and put your fingers on your carotid artery, and calling your friends meant using the rotary phone that hung on the kitchen wall.
Now, thanks to the proliferation of wearable technology, or just “wearables,” we are able to do a number of amazing things right from our wrists or other parts of our body; this includes keeping tabs on the number of steps we took that day, checking texts, making payments and more.
But while wearables can do some pretty amazing things, we don’t always want to announce to the world, “Hey, I’m trying to monitor my fitness level.” Fortunately, there are a number of wearables that are relatively inconspicuous and can blend in with what you are wearing.
For example, check out the following designs:
While the Apple Smartwatch is capable of doing a bunch of really cool things like making and accepting phone calls, texting and more, its iconic square look makes it stand out on your wrist. If you are in the market for a smartwatch that looks more like a classic timepiece, consider the ZTE Quartz or the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier watches from T-Mobile. Both feature a traditional circular design and plenty of cool features that strike a balance between fashionable and functional. For example, the ZTE Quartz watch makes crystal clear phone calls, allows for hands-free messaging, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity and more. The Samsung Gear S3 is 4G LTE connected, which means you can receive texts, reply to emails and track your activity from your wrist. The watch’s rotating bezel and attractive design looks amazing and will complement just about any outfit.
