The disclosed techniques enable automatic configuration of a wearable computing device, e.g., a smartwatch, to match style and/or functionality to fashion product or accessories. With user permission, the smartwatch obtains information about the fashion product via short-range communication technology, e.g., by reading a near field communication (NFC) tag in fashion products, e.g., jackets, handbags, shoes, etc. Information from the tag is used to identify characteristics of the fashion product such as function, brand, color, style, etc. The smartwatch is automatically configured to update style and/or function to match the identified characteristics.
