Guess Launches Its Own Android Wear Smartwatch

Guess Launches Its Own Android Wear Smartwatch

The Guess Connect watches feature Snapdragon Wear 2100 processors, and because they run Android Wear 2.0, they include features like handwriting and a keyboard for text replies.

As the Android Wear 2.0 roll out begins in earnest, the Baselworld 2017 watch show is playing host to a raft of new smartwatches bearing Google's revised wearable OS. Guess has taken a stab at smartwatches before, when the company teamed up with Martian for a range of hybrid watches.

Guess Connect smartwatch is available in 44mm and 41 case sizes so they're aimed at both men and women. The 41mm Connect will come in shades of silver, gold, or rose gold, and have clear crystals around the case.

There will be five different styles for men, with rose gold, polished steel, black silicone strap, crocodile leather patterned strap and bronze case, or a steel version with a grey embossed silicone strap. The men's model is somewhat more traditional, with a "variety of dress and sport styles for the man who wants versatility in his watch accessory". The new version of the Connect smartwatch will be available in two variants, based on the gender. Sadly, there's no word on pricing or availability, but it we think it's safe to assume that it'll cost somewhere in the region of $120-160.

Swatch has announced that it will also be joining the smartwatch trend, putting it in direct competition with Android Wear and the Apple Watch.
