Get that chunky smart watch


The smart phone is no longer just a trend; it is now part of life.

For a gadget to have your music, pictures, calendar, periods tracker and all your appointments, it is definitely part of you.

As trends evolve, so have the gadgets and their accessories.

The latest being the Smart Watch.

This accessory helps to connect directly to the phone. Big brands including Apple, Samsung, Huawei and LG have developed smart watches for their devices. Is it a fashion statement? Yes. That is why they come in different colours and sizes.

If you look closely you will realise that the smart watch has become more like a guys’ thing. Years since the first one was made, they are still big and masculine. The search for that feminine Smart Watch is still on.

But there is absolutely nothing wrong with rocking the Samsung Gear or the Apple Watch, set to hit stores next month.Get ready to part with $ 24,000 for the 18 carat gold edition, ladies.


But all hope is not lost. With the likes of Gucci and Tag Heuer also jumping into the smart watch business, it could be a matter of time before we see a luxury smart watch made especially for women.

As we wait for female-specific options, it looks like you may have to invest in a couple of watches.

The Samsung Gear comes in gold, black and white. If your phone runs on Android OS, you even have options from less-known brands including Pebble Steel, Neptune or Motorola’s stylish Moto 360.

In the meantime, know that you cannot wear your masculine Samsung Gear to every occasion. It will do justice to your casual look, but not that evening gown.
