NEW GENERATION ACCESSORIES
The developments in the area of mobile network and the expanding use of technology have provided us with the development of wearable technology as well. Bluetooth earpods, smartwatches and smart glasses have enabled mankind to reach data through wireless means. Smartwatches that can function both alone and synchronized with other devices are the greatest examples of wearable technologies. These technologic watches that help us use our smart devices easier can provide processed data related to health, fitness, location, emotions, etc. using their built-in sensors and software.
Last September, many new models of smartwatches have been promoted. We have made a collection of the most outstanding ones.
