A Smart Gift

21st December 2016

img_0064Basic is boring, so today I’m sharing a new twist on a go-to gift.img_0155

The holidays can be a challenging time, it’s tough to figure out what to get for everyone on your list. One go-to gift that is both timeless (excuse the pun) and functional, is a watch. You can pick one up for your brother, father, boyfriend, mother, sister, best friend, mentor, grandparent and pretty much anyone else that you want to gift this holiday season. But now, with a new influx of technology, why not upgrade this go-to gift to something new and noteworthy but still classic and chic.img_0221img_0077

Introducing the new hybrid smartwatches – a twist on a classic accessory that combines fashion with technology.


The What:img_0122
Hybrid smartwatches can do it all, without the touch screen that you’re used to seeing with smartwatches. After you download the app to your smartphone and sync to your watch, you can track your activity (both awake and asleep), set custom goals, take advantage of auto time and the use of a second time zone and utilize filtered notifications with vibration and hand dial animations. Additionally, these watches can not only ring your phone but also track your goals, control your music and even help you take a selfie all while living off a 6 month battery life and being Android®  or iPhone® compatible.img_0184

The How:img_0115
How’s this done? Why magic of course and by magic I mean advanced technology that links to the things you already own – like your smartphone. iPhone and Android users alike can download the apps and take advantage of these features through bluetooth synchronicity and wireless technology. Additionally it seamlessly shares with UA Record, Jawbone® UP, Apple® HealthKit, and Google® Fit.


The Who:
This watch is perfect for anyone on your list, and for those tech-savvy family members who will be impressed by the “the next big thing.” Even the people in your life who aren’t tech savvy will be blown away by how easy they are to set up and use.untitled-2 untitled-12fossil-1

These watches are available in all your favorite watch brands, such as kate spade new york FossilEmporio Armani , Chaps and more. Another bonus? These watches are about the same price as a traditional analog timekeeper. With a hybrid smartwatch, for about the same price you get so much more.img_0066

The Why:
With an overwhelming amount of gift options out there this season, I think it is best to invest in something that they will wear all day, every day and use constantly. Every time they check the time, or maybe even take a selfie, they will think of you and smile for the awesome gift you gave.img_0176

Now, after owning and using one, I can truly say that after you have a hybrid smartwatch, you won’t know how you ever functioned without one – and to me, that’s what makes the perfect holiday gift.img_0089
