The humble watch used to be a tool to tell the time, but over the years, it has ended up as a fashion statement, one that could even cost more than an entire house if it is studded with jewels and other kinds of precious gems. Well, the watch was said to die a slow death with the introduction of smartwatches, but such a prediction has proven to be otherwise. The luxury line of watches continue to sell well regardless of the economic climate among the well-heeled and famous, while the regular watch maintains its market share as smartwatches struggle to break into the mainstream consciousness and being a “must have” item on everyone’s wrists. Casio forges on with its very first connected watches for men, the G-Shock G-Steel line.

The Opter Pose prides itself in being a fashionable alternative to the basic plastic wristband, so much so that Forbes has even deemed it to be “the new must-have in wearable tech.”

There was once a time when Bluetooth headsets were all the rage — and that was close to two decades ago. Phones were just that, phones, and there was no such thing as a modern day smartphone with a full touchscreen display, although it well on its way to the existing smartphone design with the advent of the Palm treo and its ilk.
