Another proof that we’re already living in the future.
Who says a smartwatch can’t look stylish? If you’re following us on Instagram, then you might know what we’re talking about. GUESS is currently making waves at Baselworld 2015 with its very first smartwatch (which Fashion Editor Andrea got to try on *jelly*)! The wearable tech timepiece, aptly named GUESS Connect, is made in partnership with Martian Watches, a California-based award-winning developer of fashionable smartwatches.
The multi-function yet chic smartwatch is made for both men and women and has also successfully made its debut at the Mobile World Congress 2015 event in Barcelona, Spain earlier this month. And so far, reviews have been raving about it.
With a microphone and a clear audio speaker installed, GUESS Connect allows access to the user’s smartphone’s voice command app, enabling wearers to give voice commands, talk and listen, and respond to texts and emails directly from the watch. Not only that, with the free iOS and Android app, notifications and unique vibration patterns are easily customizable according to personal preferences.
Fashioned after its best-selling style Rigor, GUESS Connect perfectly combines style and innovation in one functional accessory and will be made available in Malaysia by October 2015. More details to come then, so be sure to watch this space, but for now, here’s a quick guide to what you can expect from the fashion brand’s first smartwatch!
