The Apple Watch will probably be the most talked about smartwatch of 2015, but it certainly won't be the most stylish. The latest and best smartwatches have started to move away from their bulky, digitized roots, packaging cutting edge connected features inside classically contoured cases. Here are five stylish smartwatches that successfully pull off both sleek looks and functional connectivity.
Look quickly and you might mistake the all-new Martian GUESS Connect for one of the latest affordable-but-stylish GUESS watches tucked behind Macy's watch display glass. However, this isn't your average GUESS. The smartwatch innovators at Martian Watches teamed up with the fashion brand to create a low-profile smartwatch with familiar style borrowed from GUESS' Rigor watch.
The two brands intend to release a variety of men's and women's styles, injecting traditional timepiece design with technology that is updatable and replaceable. While specifics like pricing and release date have yet to be announced, the parties say that the watches will include features like Siri and Android voice commands, smartphone notifications, vibration alerts, and control of smartphone devices like cameras and music players. Expect to see the CES 2015 Innovation Award-honoree watches showing up at both fashion and consumer electronics retailers in the near future.
