iWatch is so 2014.

Technology and Fashion have team up again to create a frequency-block pair of trousers. Say what?

Let me explain. Symantec (the one from Norton) has teamed up with San Francisco-based clothing label Betabrand to create a fabric with radio frequency identification-blocking. It is specifically made for the trousers pockets to avoid thieves from stealing information from contactless credit cards. Beware that the pockets also inactivate mobile phones, so no calls while on transit.

The product goes out for sale this February.
