Travel involves lists. Lots and lots of lists. Whether you plan your itinerary in your head, on paper, or on a smart phone or laptop, any well-seasoned traveller knows that when you’re not enjoying the sights and sounds of your latest destination, you will be making a list and checking it twice. Tickets, luggage, hotel bookings, flight times, important phone numbers, trip details … when you commit to travel plans, there’s a list waiting around every corner.
I’ve recently been looking into ways of keeping this information conveniently to hand (without keeping an open laptop strapped to my chest!). I began, as you might expect, by looking into apps. And there are many. But then something struck me. What if I lose my phone or tablet? I would lose everything. Every list. Every important piece of information. All gone. That’s when I discovered smart watches.
A smartwatch straps to your wrist, which makes it hard to lose. The smartwatch can organise all of your travel plans, from boarding passes and flight tracking to hotel bookings and on-the-go currency conversions. All right there on your wrist. Check out this superb guide to smart watches.
