Over the last 10 to 20 years, technology has etched its way into every aspect of our lives. There was once a time when a computer was a huge contraption that required a lot of space and power to work, but now, that same technology can be condensed down into a tiny square that you can wear on your wrist.

Wearable technology is still in its relative infancy, but there are a number of pieces that are becoming more and more popular as time goes on. Love it or hate it, technology fashion is here to stay, and it’s likely it will only get more and more prevalent as technology as a whole continues to become even more of an integrated life necessity.

If you’ve not yet ventured into fashion technology, or if you’re looking for the next best thing to add to your collection, here are a few of the must-have pieces currently on the market.

Smart Watch

You might think that Apple invented the smartwatch, but it was actually quite late to the party. Hamilton Watch Company invented the first smartwatch back in 1972. Called the Pulsar, the watch had the capacity to store up to 24 digits. Nowadays, smartwatches are a lot more advanced and have a much greater capacity.

They can do everything, from making calls and sending messages to playing games and even monitoring your heart rate, there’s not much you can’t do on a smartwatch. They really are mini-computers on your wrist, and they’re slowly beginning to overtake regular watches in popularity. Most people have a smartwatch of some kind, so if you haven’t, you could be the odd one out!

A lot of people don’t like the look of smartwatches, but there are lots that mirror the look of real watches in terms of shape and size. You can also usually swap out watch straps for something a bit more to your taste.

With so much functionality and convenience, smartwatches are undoubtedly a must-have piece of fashion technology.

Smart Bra

There’s no denying that lots of things in the world weren’t designed for women, such as seatbelts. Luckily, things seem to be moving in the right direction, with lots of advancement in making technology more accessible to women.

A big part of wearable technology is based around health, especially cardio health. It can be a bit harder for women to monitor their cardio with a device because of their breasts, and trying to fit a piece of technology around a bra can be a struggle.

If you have heart problems, or if you want to monitor your heart health in general, a smart bra is a solution. The technology is integrated into the bra, making it more comfortable for women to wear every day. For the comfort level and thoughtful design alone, this is a must-have for the cardio conscious.

Novelty Jewelry

Not all wearable technology has to be purposeful – it can be worn for the sole purpose of looking good and being an interesting piece! For example, luxury cufflinks that turn at the touch of a fingertip make for a good talking point on your outfit and can add a unique element that no one else will have.

Everyone needs a talking point fashion piece, so novelty wearable technology is a must-have for everyone.
