Accessories for Your Favorite Wearable Devices

Accessories for Your Favorite Wearable Devices

If tech companies want women, millennials and teens to don — and stick with — wearable devices, the gadgets need both fashion and function. That’s why, it’s safe to say, we’ve seen a major shift from geek to chic in the wearable tech world — with a focus on fashion-forward devices like never before.

There are smart rings, necklaces and earrings. There’s the rise of smart apparel, from shirts down to socks and shoes. For existing devices, such as the more conventional smart wrist wear, there are now accessories to go with.

These do more than complete your outfit, there are also sneaky abilities hidden inside. Here’s a roundup of some devices to pair with your smartphone and wearables.

Fitbit Skins that Change with the Season.

Custom your wristband with a Fitbit Skin — an adhesive sticker cut to fit your existing Fitbit case. You can choose from existing designs, or print a design or photo of your choosing (even a straight-from-Instagram image). A bonus: Skins are easy to change whenever the mood strikes.

A Purse that Charges your Phone.

Say what!? This clutch looks like just that. But slip your smartphone inside, and you’ll get a zap of power, no outlet needed. The secret: the micro USB and iPhone hookups found inside. (Mighty Purse, $129.95)
