Take a closer look at your wrist, and if you don't exactly recognize what you're looking at, you're not alone.
That's because the watch on that very wrist has undergone a dramatic makeover, a transformation that has infused technology and taken a device that simply told time and reinvented its usefulness to the consumer.
Today's version of the watch goes far beyond telling time, and makes the once forward thinking Casio calculator watch of the 1980s about as relevant as a VCR. Your modern day timepiece isn't interested so much in letting you know the time of day but rather sports some serious features, like communicating with your smart phone or acting as a personal assistant that sits safely on your wrist.
The former probably gained most of its fame and lure thanks to Samsung, which brought to prominence the Smart Watch era with its "Gear" product. The second version of the Samsung Gear, the aptly titled Gear 2, allows you to take and make calls in addition to allowing you to listen to music. There's also a fitness element that's been added to the Gear 2, just in case your watch needs to fill in admirably for your personal trainer at a moment's notice.
Closely behind the Samsung Smart Watch is Sony, which has its own laundry list of benefits, including dabbling in all your favorite apps right from the comfort of your own wrist.
