Lumoid's home try-on box lets you test wearables as you'd actually use them

Andrew Hayward | March 4, 2015
Run, sleep, and live with them: we check out Lumoid's wearable home trial and speak with the company's founder.

Smartwatches are currently absent--actually, the standard Pebble is available if you search for the device, but it's not listed on the wearables selection page. But you won't find any Android Wear watches amidst the pack. Lumoid says it's considering such options, although it's unclear if those watches would be available as part of the home try-on or rented separately like the site's pricier gadgets and gear. 

At least the Apple Watch is destined to appear on Lumoid. The company has already established a wait list for the smartwatch, and says it "will have limited units for you to try before you decide to buy one." If the idea of spending $350 on a wearable hasn't quite clicked, then Lumoid may have one heck of an offer for you come April.
