I bought my husband this amazing silver pocket watch and chain for our third anniversary. Engraved and everything. It was so stylish. 'So money,' as the kids say'?¦or maybe that'??s what they used to say. I don'??t know.
These days, that pocket watch is so in storage. Sad face. Why, you ask, did I put it into storage? Perhaps it was because I was tired of his having this gorgeous chain draping out of his pants' pocket, but then reaching into the other pocket to take out his stupid iPhone to find out the time. WTH?
So this year, I'??m getting him connected. Z-connected that is. This is not your grandpa'??s pocket watch chain. From Palm to Blackberry and every iPhone in between, it links your phone to your pocket with a trendy chain. It'??s about time that someone added a little chic fashion to phone function. You know, beyond those bedazzled phone cases.

The Z-connector package contains a sleek cell phone case, the connector, a 28-inch designer chain (you can choose in gold, silver, or black in scrolls or links) and two fasteners. If you like the case you already have, get the Direct Z Connect, a 28-inch thin chain connector that adheres to any small electronic device'??s clean, smooth surface, by using a non-permanent adhesive. Sad news...it doesn't work on bedazzled ones.
OK, it looks fab. Well, there's also a little bit of safety to sweeten the deal. Having your phone attached to your clothes means it isn't going to slip secretly from your pocket, landing on the floor of a cab. I won't go so far as to say that this chain is strong enough to stop a running thief from snagging your phone in a mad rush, but it'll certainly take on gravity when it coming to dropping your phone accidentally.
Seems my husband is now adding a little hip to his hip.
The Z-Connector and DzC are available at get-z-connected.com for $28.97 to $37.97.
