With Christmas just around the corner, I can’t help but turn my attention to 2017 and the year ahead.
Many of you will know I love fashion and tech in equal measure and only now are we seeing the two combined in a socially acceptable way.
So, let’s look at who is doing it right with my top three fashion/tech mash ups expected in 2017!
The phrase ‘Handcrafted in ‘Italy’ is synonymous with leather belts, wallets and suits. Now you can add PRYMA headphones to this list.
PRYMA have teamed up with Italian giants, Canali, to perfectly mash fashion and tech in these absolutely stunning headphones.
Not run of the mill, nor overtly in your face, the subtle stylish headphones offer exceptional audio quality and contemporary style.
Vue Everyday Smart Glasses
Vue Smart Glasses are not only stylish (just look at them!), they’re also set to be jammed packed with various features, from listening to music (through bone conduction audio), making calls, navigation, reporting time and gesture control amongst a few things.
They’re not available just yet, the glasses from Vue are due to be launched in 2017, with a Kickstarter program receiving over $2.2 million at the time of writing.
Available in prescription reading or sunglasses, these glasses look to be an actual game changer in the world of wearable, fashionable tech.
Okay, so this isn’t 100% confirmed yet but leaks have suggested two new products coming from Google in the form of the Pixel Smartwatch.
Suspected images of the two versions look great but what’s more is that the the Pixel Smartwatch will be full of independent features with the forthcoming wearable update, Android Wear 2.0.
Android Wear 2.0 will include enhanced features for notifications, messaging and fitness but also have a standalone ‘Play Store’ (the wearable version for the mobile and tablet version).
Finally, there will be a smartwatch worthy of sitting on my wrist with actual purpose.
So, looking towards 2017!
We’re set to see giant steps in the right direction for fashionable tech, with just three examples mentioned above.
In the next decade we’re going to see tech truly define fashion and vise versa, a prospect I’m truly looking forward to!
