It's our mission at Wareable to be the authority on wearable technology on the web. Either that or our Twitter bio is telling porkies. But the thing about the internet that makes it so unfuckwithable is that we don't just want to keep you on the site 24/7. There are plenty of other good places for you to get your wearable tech fix on top of your daily/hourly/minutely check-ins with us.

So as well as keeping you up to speed in our daily news stories, The week in wearable tech, Field of view and And finally regulars, we thought we'd share some of our in-the-know social feeds. We've skipped the big tech sites because they go without saying. As for this little lot, follow, subscribe and bookmark away.



Basil at BTEKT makes awesome videos about all kinds of tech and is our video partner for big shows like CES. Subscribe for super slick hands-ons that go live the nanosecond new gadgets are announced.

How we test


Sophie was Wareable's associate editor. She joined the team from Stuff magazine where she was an in-house reviewer. For three and a half years, she tested every smartphone, tablet, and robot vacuum that mattered. 

A fan of thoughtful design, innovative apps, and that Spike Jonze film, she is currently wondering how many fitness tracker reviews it will take to get her fit. Current bet: 19.

Sophie has also written for a host of sites, including Metro, the Evening Standard, the Times, the Telegraph, Little White Lies, the Press Association and the Debrief.

She now works for Wired.
