The GUESS CONNECT watch was just named a 2016 nominee in the Global Mobile Awards 'Best Mobile Handsets and Devices Category: Best Wearable Mobile Technology' which will be given out at the show on Tuesday, Feb. 23.
In November 2015, GUESS Watches announced the availability of the GUESS CONNECT in two sizes; a 45mm case and 41mm case, in a variety of colors including blue and rose gold, brown, black and gold, and rose gold and white with crystal bezel. This spring, GUESS CONNECT will debut two additional styles for men and women.
For ladies, a 41mm case will be available in a striking combination of silver and sky blue. The top ring is adorned with light blue crystals and sits on top of a silver case with a textured genuine leather sky blue band. For men, the 45mm case will be available in a sophisticated, yet sporty, black and silver silhouette with silicone strap and pop of color with a red second hand.
GUESS CONNECT smartwatches simultaneously offer voice command functions while providing hands-free and eyes-free notifications to the wrist from thousands of popular apps and programs. GUESS CONNECT watches sync to an iOS or Android smartphone with the use of Bluetooth.
GUESS CONNECT smartwatches uniquely house a fully-contained Martian module that sports a microphone and clear audio speaker. This allows users to connect to their smartphone's resident voice command app, so wearers can give voice commands, talk and listen, and respond to texts and emails directly from the watch. Using the free iOS & Android App, users can also customize which notifications are received on the watch, recall the most recent notifications with just a tap of the watch glass and create customizable vibration patterns to distinguish the type of alert that is coming in, making the watch more intuitive and creating another level of efficiency for the user.
"GUESS is always at the forefront of fashion and with these new colors and styles we are offering our customers the latest in fashion and function for the spring season," said Cindy Livingston, President and CEO of Sequel/GUESS Watches.
Pricing and Availability
The new color variations of GUESS CONNECT will be available in April 2016 at a retail USD price starting at $379 and are available at GUESS stores and other select retailers worldwide.
