Smart home technology (such as smart heating, LED smart bulbs and video entry systems) and wearable tech (smartwatches such as the Apple Watch, fitness bands, VR headsets and smart glasses) are expected to be two of the biggest things in tech this year. But which would actually benefit your digital life the most, and which are you most likely to buy this year? Place your vote in our poll and please provide your thoughts below.

"and video entry systems look through the windows before opening the door"

We seem to be hearing about a new smart device just almost every day at the moment.

I'm very concerned that someone is going to come up with a smart Forum Editor soon, and I'll be out of a job.

I have to admit that I find it very difficult to imagine the length of Payback, on a Smart House, unless you are comparing it to time spent with all heaters going full blast.

*smart heating, thats what a thermostat's for

LED smart bulbs - use the switch on the wall or a timer

and video entry systems look through the windows before opening the door

I want a smart house that tells me - where I've left my glasses, what i came upstairs for, and reminds me to check the zip before I walk out the door.

I'm an old codger. I spent good money converting to Long-life Lamps. I shall wait another 10 years before the next step!

LED smart bulbs, when the price comes down will probably find their way into our home and, eventually perhaps, smart heating but, not a video entry system.

As for wearables, I can see VR headsets taking off with gamers but, the other things will be flashes in the pan that disappear with the coming of the next fashionable items.

The former, since I sigh every time the latter is mentioned.

I shall be buying neither this year, though, if ever.
