Wearables like the Apple smartwatch, which recently released the series 3, blur the line between fashion and tech, but hybrid smartwatches are blending them! The concept of a hybrid watch is exactly like what it sounds like—classic analog designs built with digital screen displays and hi-tech features like fitness tracking, notifications, electronic payments, voice control, and geolocation services. And to make sure it doesn’t go the way of the Google Glass and lives up to its purpose of being wearable, brands are paying more attention to design. Meaning these modern watches have stylish, interchangeable bands, customizable faces and versatile colors to match your wardrobe or your personality.
