His answer? Of course, the new and engaging opportunities provided by wearable tech. On CTV’s Canada AM this morning, Tom demonstrated three pieces of wearable kit – the Athos smart shirt and shorts, SMS Audio’s BioSport biometric earbuds, and Vancouver-based Recon Instruments’ Recon Jet smartglasses – that might appeal to fathers around the country a little more than a new fishing lure.
