We're literally getting more attached to our gadgets. Smartwatches took center stage as tech giant Samsung introduced the watch-as-phone Galaxy Gear in September. The Kickstarter born-and-bred Pebble smartwatch also hit the big time, with units now sold at Best Buy to help meet demand. At IFA Berlin, Sony unveiled its second-generation "phone remote," the Smartwatch 2, which the maker claims has the longest lasting battery at seven days of low usage and three to four days for normal usage.
While there are many smartwatches competing in the space, a frontrunner is not yet clear. Perhaps next year will see the release of rumored wrist tech from Apple and Google?
