It’s official. Despite the hype of the last 5 years, Wearable Tech is a dud. But, there’s hope. Confined basically to the Health Monitoring App niche, most users who’ve tried out wearable tech products were like, “My phone can do this already.” Most of the time, users need a phone for this stuff to work properly! But, there are a few stubborn, unique products worth looking into as Wearable Tech dies a timely death in 2016 with the coming rise of the Virtual Reality (VR) revolution. Here’s a 2015 gift guide that may tip the scales one last time…

The Apple Watch: The top of the line wearable tech product of 2015, the Apple Watch is also the snooty “must-have” gadget for iOS devotees willing to be price gouged for demo-testing the latest version.

Thync: The Thync wearable tech is just plain weird, so it kind of gets honorable mention here. It works by sending tiny electrical impulses into the brain that users report actually give them a buzz and a jolt. It’s kind of like a non-invasive lobotomy.
