If there’s a run-away trend in gadgets for 2013, it’s wearable technology. While last year people were putting iPod Nanos on wrist straps and calling them smart watches, this year there’s actually legitimate smart watches to choose from. What makes a smart watch, smart? Smart watches connect to your mobile devices (such as your Android phone or iPad) and offer all sorts of great integration perks like SMS updates, appointment reminders, weather, Caller ID, and other notifications. If you have somebody on your holiday shopping list that is always pulling their phone out to see why it’s vibrating, a smart watch will give them a much classier and subtle way to do so.
