We’re proud to announce that we have been publishing Wristworthy for a whole year and what a year it has been! In June 2018 we published our first article and since that article first hit the press we have been bowled over by the response from our readers. In our first year, our articles were read more than 15,000 times by more than 8000 people from 127 countries! To say this has blown us away is an understatement!

So please do get in…
