Making sense of wearables - Telegraph | Fashion Law and Business |
Convincing the world of the viability of a wearable-driven future rests upon wearables freeing themselves from the shackles of their predecessors

This article has been one of the first to show me a new perspective and opinion about wearable technologies. The author, Charlotte Golunski, discusses how wearable technologies are still being improved upon and are currently just pricey gimmicks. 

According to Golunski, "Unless connected to wi-fi, the majority of wearables currently on the market are reliant on being tethered to a smartphone. Interesting content is another issue: most wearables’ apps are an identikit or cut-down version of their smartphone counterpart, with the only real advantage being one of slightly more convenient access." Therefore, the author believes that the wearable technologies are not developed enough, nor obtain enough technology to make the pricy pieces worth buying. 

It was interesting to read a new point of view, because thus far I have only seen positive reviews regarding wearable technologies.
