Every year technology makes some great advances with new devices coming to the market that can possibly help make our lives easier. Laptops, smartphones and tablets have opened the doors to everything mobile and now we have new aged "wearable tech" that can allow us to do even more. 

We all know what a blue tooth headset does, it allows us to be safe and hands free while chatting on our smartphones but what exactly is this new aged wearable tech and what does it do? 

Wearable tech is exactly that - Technology you wear! From smart watches that keep you in the know on the go and fitness bands that monitor your body to dog training collars for Fido and even soothing stress calming devices that work with your brain waves, there is a wearable gadget for just about everyone.

Best Buy Canada has teamed up with Canadian Comedienne Debra DiGiovanni (who is also a self proclaimed technophobe) to introduce you to the world of wearable tech in a series called "What the heck is wearable tech?!". 


In this fun video and blog series, you can find out first hand how these gadgets work. In her first video, Debra demonstrates the Muse head band gadget. It looks like it would take some getting used to. The second video focuses on the fitness wearable tech - the Fitbit Charge fitness tracker. I have heard of FitBit before but I have not personally tried the bands out myself. Debra gives us a hilarious outtake of what one could expect while using this gadget. Take a look at this video: 

If you're planning on getting that special someone new wearable tech like the Fitbit Charge this holiday season Best Buy Canada is the place to go. There are hundreds of different things to choose from at prices you can afford plus if your a self proclaimed technophobe yourself, the Geek Squad is always there to lend a helping hand.

  53. I learned that it counts calories based on movement. Even lack of movement. And if you see how much you benefit from calories burned while stationary, you may be encouraged to move to see how much more you can benefit from getting active.
