    These sound pretty sweet!

    - Antimicrobial material for weekly wear
    - Built in WIFI and Bluetooth connectivity
    - 2 week battery life
    - Accurate to a millimeter GPS-based distance tracking
    - Each sock will vibe independently guiding wearer via GPS to walking destination
    - Additional features to be enabled with sister smart tennis shoes, due in 2016

    Sounds pretty sweet. There is talk that the apps, while phone based, will have support for AW watches too.

    This was a live announcement this morning, I will post the link as soon as its available.

    Continuing the theme here...anyone seen the Moto "selfie stick" commercial released this morning? I even received an e-mail from them promoting their new selfie stick. They had me for about 10 seconds until the video started.

    I actually posted it earlier, but decided it didn't merit its own thread and deleted it.

    I get that it's a joke, but it wouldn't have surprised me to be real.
