I love it when the technology and fashion worlds collide and today, I’m delighted to share something quite special with you. Have you heard all the buzz around wearable technology? I’ve been lucky enough to collaborate with Motorola and experience their brand new Moto 360 watch… and let me tell you, it’s simply amazing!
I’m sure you’ll agree when I say how hectic daily life can be (and this time of year is even crazier!). Going from one thing to the next, work meetings, assignment deadlines, flights, ensuring you catch up with family and friends, important birthdays and special occasions… it’s all too much to remember off the top of your head! I rely so heavily on my diary (yes, I can be a little old fashioned) and my computer calendar has saved me from many a missed meeting… but the diary can be cumbersome in my handbag and you certainly can’t carry a laptop with you everywhere. Enter the Moto 360! Well my friends, this isn’t just a watch – far from it, this little baby can do everything!
Between running Style Elixir and Bloggers Closet, keeping me on track and where I need to be at the right time is beyond important. I’ve quickly become obsessed with the notification and update functionality this watch has including text messages, calendar notifications, emails and the blogger holy-grail… social media alerts! Yes, seriously.
I can also use voice control to do things like send text messages, Google whatever question is on my mind and check local weather for the day… yes, I talk to my Moto 360! I’ve never felt more in the space-age.
As some of you know, I have also been working out and focusing on my health and fitness a lot more recently… #FitForThirty. So I’ve had fun using the built-in Moto Body health tracker, which records my distance covered, number of steps taken, heart rate, calories burned and even keeps me on track with goal targets I’ve set.
Oh and for fellow app lovers, there’s a number you can add on to your Moto 360! You can do everything from WhatsApp (I use this aaall the time!), Pinterest, Facebook and Lyft to name just a few.
We’re all so connected these days and having emails, apps and technology at our fingertips is a given (it makes me laugh / cringe how dependent on internet access I’ve become… whaaaat there’s no wifi on this flight?!). So I’ve loved experiencing the Moto 360 – it honors the timeless tradition of wearing a classic watch, but has everything we need (and more!) for our modern lives.
