Smarter By The Minute!

Here at Very, we love keeping up with the latest tech trends, and obviously we also love to keep you up to date with these trends too, so now that wearable tech is becoming a major player, its only right that we give you the inside scoop on the best choices out there.

Smart Watches are a great call if you want full functionality to go with your phone. With everything from taking calls (bringing memories of wanting to be a Power Ranger and talking to your watch!) and checking our Twitter and Google+ pages to tracking your sleep patterns and even taking notes of your mood, these are great accompaniments to your phone. Most Smart Watches are Android only at the minute, so any iPhone owners might need to wait a little longer!

The Galaxy Gear (available in a range of colours here) is great if you own a Samsung Galaxy phone, with dedicated apps and even a camera on the strap – great for quick snaps! This watch even has 4GB of storage so if you have Bluetooth headphones, you’ll be able to listen to all your music directly from the watch.

If you really want to turn some heads though, the Gear Fit, with its curved AMOLED screen is perfect for you! This one doesn’t have the camera, or the music storage capacity of the Gear, but is a fantastic lifestyle companion. After adding a few details, like your height and weight, and it’ll soon be tracking your heart rate during exercise, steps taken and even your sleep patterns! Both this and the Galaxy Gear are only compatible with Samsung phones however, but luckily we have you covered with our next choice.

The Sony Smart Watch SW2. Like the Galaxy Gear, it has a touch screen and a lot of apps for full connectivity. The battery on this one lasts longer though, so if you’re forgetful when it comes to charging then you can go 3-4 days without charging (5-6 with light use) compared to the Galaxy’s 1-2.

It’s not just Smart Watches we cater for. We also have a range of fitness bands, so if you’re not looking for a watch then the Sony Core Smart Band SWR10 is a great choice that looks after most aspects of your life. It knows if you’re walking, cycling or even travelling by train! This band is even customisable with a range of different coloured bands (available in Small and Large) so you can switch it out every day to meet your clothes or mood.
