Wearable devices shouldn’t be thought of as an extension of one’s smartphone but an extension of oneself, This blending of craftsmanship and technology is a natural evolution of the smartwatch, which is becoming more of a lifestyle accessory than a piece of hardware. We think this is a good direction for wearables and we want to encourage this transformation.Chris Yie, vice president and head of marketing communications for LG Mobile Communications Company
