Wearable technologies are becoming increasingly popular as advancements in technology mean we humans are now always connected to the digital world. This has led to a rise in demand for products such as smart watches, as consumers demand both style and functionality from their products.
Now, as more men than ever take increasing pride in their style, there has been a rise in the number of watch suppliers offering fantastic models to the men’s watches market.
Style is and will always be subjective to an individual, and a watch can say a lot about its wearer. With so many watch designers and manufacturers on the market, there is an array of traditional, digital and smart watches to peruse.
From gummy watches for $5, to 24K solid gold watches from, there will always be a style that suits you or your child. As a generalisation smart watches tend to be more focused on replicating their counterpart the smartphone, with clean sleek lines, metals and simple colours abound. They also tend to feature a touch screen, giving them both a modern look and feel.
There are many people who would prefer the intricacy of a moving timepiece and who appreciate the beauty in the mechanics of the watch. They like an understated, silver or gold watch with a leather strap that offers a classic and simple aesthetic that isn’t too ‘out there’.
One major advantage that smart watches possess over traditional timepieces, is the ability to link to your smartphone. This means with most models that you can answer calls, receive email and text updates, check the weather and even take. Most of these things can be done on your smartphone, but on a watch they have the accessibility and convenience of being wrist based and compact! For parents this connectivity can help relieve the stress and worries that every parent has, and should help to alleviate problems such as getting in contact with your child.
While these advancements in technology are great, they’re not for everyone. Many people prefer function to be as simple as possible, and would be far happier having a watch that does what it’s supposed to do and simply tells you the time and date! Who would’ve thought it?
Of course, time-keeping aficionados will want to own several watches of each style. Maybe try wearing a smart watch for school/ work, making your family’s hectic life simpler. For important meetings or evenings out, you can slip on a leather strapped, classic model.
