Most smartwatches on the market are chunky, bulky and definitely not feminine. Enter the H.Tang smartwatch, which is currently seeking funding through Pozible.com.

I'm definitely not an athlete, but I still enjoy tracking my steps and other fitness information as a way to monitor how active I am or usually how active I'm not.
