Here is a lineup of sexy and stalwart gift ideas for each of the people in your life, starting with Mom and Dad.
We’re talking Hybrid Smartwatches here, folks – the gift of time laced with a modicum of essential activity and sleep tracking incorporating a minimalist suite of life’s daily alerts. These new breeds of smartwatches deliver filtered notifications that are all slimly frosted atop classic old fashioned analog watch faces.
It all adds up to a most welcome change of pace from the sometimes-heavy duty, non-stop daily data, app slogging and overdose of the touchscreen laden, pure smartwatch world.
Yes, “hybrid smartwatches” are a thing, peeps, ever more so this season, as they are hitting their stride, with many different high fashion watch houses co-marketing and co-opting technologies to pin to their enduring consumer brands.
So if you hit up your nearest ecommerce joint of choice to peruse the smorgasbord of offerings for your family and circle of loved ones, you can be the star of your family’s holiday gift giving bonanza, the envious apple of your BFF’s eye. . . . That is, unless you’re really into giving two dimensional, magnetic stripe laced, stored value cards that you usually pick up next to the candy rack at the cashier’s counter the day before the big event.
