Why should I insure my Smartwatch?
Smartwatches are becoming increasingly popular, with people using mobile apps to track their fitness levels; to access their mobile messages without having to pull out their smartphone; and even to tell the time. But wearable gadgets are even more exposed than those designed to be kept in a bag or pocket. And so if you have an expensive piece of wearable tech strapped to your wrist at all times, it is going to be prone to damage, loss or theft. This is what makes smartwatch insurance from gadgetbuddy.com so appealing. With it, you can protect your device of choice and have it repaired or replaced whenever something disastrous occurs. And because our smartwatch policies are inexpensive, you can secure cover to complement your home insurance, thereby avoiding the need to claim via that route with the associated risk of premium increases.
