Online and Offline on your wrist
Okay, a year ago I was thrilled by the new announcement of the TAG Heuer connected watch, after the Apple’s success story , I could not help myself wonder if I would one day have an electronic watch. I haven’t gotten a beautiful Swiss-made and traditional one, (yet – hopefully this will come with the years..haha) I did get some lovely ones and very practical but to be honest I am craving for the one watch to keep with me forever and never get tired of it. This one may cost a lot, so I’ll figure out about that one later on ;). For now, I am too curious to set up with one watch. I like to think of watches as accessories.
I recently discovered Fossil’s smartwatch, as you have probably seen on my insta-, snapchat stories, a cutie, rose gold please, connected to my phone. I never thought I would be so into it. I like to see myself disconnected and capable of turning my phone and any other electronic gadgets off, but I have to admit that I got pretty excited about it. I am not gonna lie, I am not that crazy about how many steps I walk each day, but I got to play with it since it’s a touch screen. The watch is connected to my phone via Bluetooth and I must have the app on my phone, both Apple IOS and Android are compatible. Then, I can start to discover it. I get notifications from the different apps that I have given access to, such as Whatsapp, Instagram, and so on, basically all my social media platforms on which I am active (in the settings), including calendar and Facebook notifs. I have access to the weather forecast, Google Maps, control the music I am playing on, e-mails and calls. Hopefully I can turn on the flight mode and don’t get distrub by anything on my wrist.
If you take care of a more traditional dial, you can change and choose one out of a bunch. I chose a digital one with pinkish and purplish colors, to contrast and match with the connectivity. I like it, and by doing so, I can definitely change the look and feel of the watch. Also, I chose a rose gold stainless bracelet, but I can easily change it to a leather one if I want to. I like to have all those options, to modify the aspect of my watch, and use it as an accessory to my everyday look.
