#VZHangout Recap: Our Love of Wearable Tech

Earlier this year, CES set the tone for connected technology, with wearables being a big focus. From smart watches and smart glasses to fitness trackers and even wearables for pets, worldwide spending on wearable technology is forecasted to reach $1.4 billion by 2016.

I recently fell in love with the Gear 2 Neo smart watch from Samsung, and have since had an opportunity to try out some other wearable devices that I can’t get enough of. So, I thought it would be fun to host a Google Hangout on Air with some of my fellow tech enthusiasts to talk about which wearables they were most excited to try.

We talked about everything from the Garmin Vivofit to the Moto 360 and even a smartphone that looks like a pocket watch! Did you know the Garmin Vivofit can hold a charge for up to a year?
