Wearable technology is becoming the new trend. If you don’t wear a tech piece of jewelry or accessory yet, I can assure that technology will be added to your wearable collection. Technology trends are changing every few year and change the society. First the internet, then social media, smart phones and tablets, and now smart wearable technology is taking the stage. It is all about making our lives easier, since we all attached to our smart phones, a wearable device is a combination of both.
The new gadgets are popular for the early adopters and are bought in lotteries. The hottest technology wearables in the market are the smart watches. All tech leaders show off with few styles and they are many options in the market. Google Glass is another main actor on that stage, an Android version in a light frame that follows voice commands. While wearing those we can do anything and still be on the Internet, read social media, take pictures and videos, check the weather and use other Google Glass Apps. Those tech toys are not priced cheaply, Google Glass cost $1,500 and available to a number of participants in the Early Explorer Program, while smart watches run from one hundred to one thousand USD.

Smart watches came in many shapes and colors with different features.
