Now, the watch is making a comeback to the wrist as the clever, networked smartwatch. The Stiftung Warentest has tested five different smartwatches. Paul-Christian Britz on test results, tech gadgets and the dangers of increasing interconnection.

“Wenn Sie die Uhrzeit wissen wollen, schauen Sie auf ihr Handgelenk oder auf ihr Telefon?
Wer sein Handy sowieso immer bei sich hat, verzichtet oft auf die Uhr am Arm. Doch je größer moderne Smartphones werden, umso unhandlicher sind sie. Nun will die Uhr als clevere, vernetzte Smartwatch zurück ans Handgelenk. Die Stiftung Warentest hat fünf Smartwatches getestet. Paul-Christian Britz über Testergebnisse, technische Spielereien und die Gefahren zunehmender Vernetzung.

I produced this podcast during my training at the PR department of Stiftung Warentest, which is part of my traineeship
