A new generation of timepiece blending fashion and technology
GUESS® Watches has revealed its latest wearable tech timepiece, GUESS CONNECT. The new multi-function fashion chic smartwatch line, which is designed for men and women, is a partnered effort with Martian Watches™, a California based award-winning developer of fashionable smartwatches. Fashioned after its global best-selling style - RIGOR, this boldly styled smartwatch is powered by Martian technology that is updateable and replaceable to keep GUESS CONNECT watches fresh and relevant for years to come.
The GUESS CONNECT smartwatches will incorporate Martian's Dual Mode functionality, simultaneously offering voice command functions via Classic Bluetooth while utilizing Bluetooth LE to provide hands-free and eyes-free notifications to the wrist from thousands of popular apps and programs.
By uniquely housing a fully-contained Martian module that sports a microphone and clear audio speaker, the GUESS CONNECT 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. In addition, using the free iOS & Android App, users can customize which notifications are received on the watch, create unique vibration patterns to distinguish between alert types, and recall the most recent notifications with just a tap of the watch glass.
"The GUESS CONNECT Smartwatch, Powered by Martian, has already received rave reviews and our customers are anxious to see the blend of fashion and wearable technology that speaks to both our craving for stylish watches but something that meets our busy lifestyle needs. We are excited to partner with a proven technology innovator like Martian to create smart, GUESS designs," Cindy Livingston, President and CEO of Sequel / GUESS Watches.
The debut of the latest GUESS CONNECT is the perfect marriage of fashion and technology resulting in a stylish, trendsetting timepiece yet provides smart, high-tech value for young, sexy, and adventurous buyers. The GUESS CONNECT may also become the first fashion smartwatch to be distributed through both the worldwide fashion watch channel and the consumer electronic channel.
