After recently contemplating about the luxury of privacy and what it means in this day and age of ‘reality’ when we so freely abandon it for social media leaving us belonging to the public rather than to ourselves, I’ve come to realise it’s more important now than ever to have a connection. Privacy, often seen as a negative word, is in my opinion actually a beautiful notion. Just think about it, we cut off others and the rest of the world except for those few chosen people we wish to be connected with. Whether we are next to them or on the opposite of the world we can stay in sync with them regardless of location thanks to technology. Even more beautiful might be the advancements in technology being able to speak to each other which brings me to the point and why I’m really excited about this post.
As someone who lives with their phone on silent and no vibrate – I’m always missing calls and texts for the simple fact I hate being available 24/7. I love not being discoverable which I’m sure you would never guess form someone who documents their life across social media but I post when I want to post, I call when I want to call and I text when I want to text. But in doing so I can easily lose a connection. But not anymore thanks to the most amazing watch from Skagen. A smart watch that maintains a classic sense and style all while the design syncs to your phone and not only tracks your physical movements (another obsession of mine – 10,000 steps a day is my minimum), it acts as a remote to take pictures through your phone, play and pause songs on your device, and automatically adjusts to a new time zone but more importantly it allows you to select 6 contracts to link up with the watch which will notify you with a gentle vibrate and clock hand movement when one of the chosen either texts, calls or emails you – the perfect system for someone like who me never really has their phone in their hand but wants to stay connected whether in the office or in the middle of the wilderness like where I recently found myself. It’s nice to go somewhere remote and switch off from the world by not being glued to a phone but still be reachable by your chosen 6 friends or family thanks to the Skagen Connected. Now you have no excuses for missed connections.
