Smartwatch / fitness tracker

We are seeing the number of smartwatches and fitness trackers slowly but surely increase. Packed with a growing range of sensors, these devices are effectively merging into a single wrist worn wearable. However as more and more functionality is squeezed into an already small footprint, using the right power efficiency and space-saving packages is vital.
