The smartwatch market may be slowing down, but it’s not going to stop fashion brands from jumping into the trend. Luxury Italian fashion brand, Emporio Armani, recently launched a new line of hybrid smartwatches called the Emporio Armani Connected.
The Emporio Armani Connected may look like a typical analogue smartwatch, but it can be connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth to give you all the basic features a smart wearable provides – sleep tracking, notifications and such. Its companion app for iOS and Android devices allow wearers to track their activities and sleep, control music, schedule alerts, receive discreet notifications, and more.
- Time keeping perfection: ensure maximum precision, automatically changing time zones and date while you’re traveling
- Second time zone: accurately convert the hour with ease
- Discreet notifications: can be set to subtly notify you of calls, messages, or other important notifications
- Activity tracking: automatically track and monitor your daily activities
- No charging: the quartz batteries allow for prolonged use without the need to recharge
- Control your music: allow for easy access to your phone’s music playlist to start, stop, skip, or go back
- Sleep tracking: to automatically monitor sleep patterns
- Alarm: for scheduled alerts from your timepiece
- Camera: wirelessly take photos on your smartphone
- Find your lost device: to quickly locate your misplaced smartphone
The Emporio Armani Connected is available on www.emporioarmaniconnected.com, in selected boutiques and wholesale accounts worldwide, with a price ranging from US$250 to US$400, depending on the model you select. It is available in rose cold-tone, black, gunmental, and stainless steel, with three-piece link or leather strap.
Emporio Armani isn’t the only brand under Fossil to launch a hybrid smartwatch. According to Ars Technica, almost all Fossil brands now have smartwatches, including Michael Kors, Chaps, Diesel, and Kate Spade.
