As the title says, Martian Watches and GUESS have produced a new smart watch called the GUESS CONNECT. It was introduced at CES 2015, where it was selected as a CES 2015 Innovation Award Honoree in the wearables division. The CONNECT is based on GUESS’ fashionable best-selling RIGOR watch. The watch is “water resistant and 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. The GUESS CONNECT smartwatches will uniquely house a fully-contained Martian module that sports a microphone and clear audio speaker.”
When combined with the free iOS or Android app, you’ll use voice commands to instruct CONNECT to read or send messages, initiate or accept a call, or anything your iOS or Android phone permits through voice command. The small screen at the bottom of the watch face displays information and notifications, and you can set vibrations to alert you to incoming notifications without ever having to glance at the watch face. Availability hasn’t been announced yet, but from March 2-5, 2015, the companies will present their smartwatches at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at #CS124 Congress Square, Wearables Pavilion. Stop by the booth for a hands-on demonstration and a chance to win some of these remarkable watches if you attend these international events.
