Still looking for the last-minute perfect gift for the holiday season? Here’s a list of some of our favorite wearable tech gadgets we would like to see under our Christmas tree!
With a look that shouts, ‘business casual,’ this one is definitely one of the best-looking fitness activity trackers on the market for daily wear. The Jawbone UP is a stylish activity tracker bracelet that connects to a very well-designed app to share information and graphics about your personal health. The strap is made from a hypoallergenic rubber, which most have deemed to be more comfortable than its competitors and looks good with a wide range of outfits from the gym to the office. There’s no OLED display, but the Jawbone offers a trio of lights to indicate sleep, activity and notifications. Blue lights are used in sleep mode, orange is for activity, and white lights tell you about notifications. (BTW, the UP2 also makes a great gift if you’re looking for something more affordable).
An impressive headset priced at just under $100, the Samsung Gear VR landed just in time for Christmas. The headset allows you to turn your smartphone into an amazing virtual reality device with selected games, so you become immersed at a far deeper level than you’re used to when playing on mobile devices.

This Fossil’s first leap into the wearable fashion market. The Fossil Q collection is a set of Android Wear smartwatches that combine both quality and fashion. These perform everything you’d expect from a smartwatch, including activity and sleep tracking, connecting to your favorite apps, and receiving notifications.

Legendary crystal-maker Swarovski partnered with smartwatch maker MisFit to create a fun, sparkly fitness tracker that will let you shine at the company holiday party. The shine is among the first of its kind to combine the beauty of jewelry with the function of a smartwatch. Simply set the device to your personal fitness goals, and halos of light show your daily progress to let you know where you are at meeting your target. When double-tapped, it becomes a handy watch. The device is also synced to your smartphone.
This is a great gift idea for the golfer in your life. A ‘shot-tracking and distance data that can help you hit smarter shots,’ the Game Golf Live has tiny sensors that attach to the top of your golf club handle, and are simultaneously tapped to a wearable belt sensor before every shot. The live features send data to an app on your smartphone, such as strokes gained, mapping, recommendations, etc, so you can see a full display of information and get real-time snapshots of your data while playing.
This wearable tracker for your is the perfect gift for your pet!

But the most important part about the collar is that you can even set it up to alert you when your pet has stepped out of his boundaries! So you’ll never lose Fido again.
