With the emergence of smartwatches and fitness trackers in the last few years, there’s been a shift of what men are wearing on their wrists. Some are looking for more than just the time and date from their watch and the new features and capabilities these digital options offer can be pretty attractive.
What is not so attractive is the way they look. Some harken back to the spirit of the calculator watches that became popular in the early ’80’s. So what’s a man of style to do who is looking for the cool interactive options the smartwatch has to offer but doesn’t want to look like he spends his days programming on a Macintosh? Well some of fashion’s top luxury brands offer smartwatch options that provide more stylish choices.
Michael Kors Grayson Smartwatch
At first glance, if you look at the Grayson Smartwatch by Michael Kors, it looks like another fine timepiece by the popular brand. However, a closer look shows you the digital display that offers a number of interactive capabilities, including social media updates, text and email alerts, app notifications, a fitness tracker and voice activated help from Google. Powered by Android Wear 2.0, this is a more traditional looking watch that offers a whole lot more.
Movado Bold Connected II Smartwatch
Movado is known for creating great watches with a minimalist design. Created with Bluetooth and smartphone compatibility and engineered by HP, the Bold Connected II is a rare mix of style and function. Being Android/iOS compatible means it acts as an extension of your smartphone offering many features on your phone such as phone calls, calendar functions, email, text and your social media messages and alerts. Bold is a very apropos name for this watch.
Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45
Tag Heuer is one of the best known high end watch brands on the planet and the Connected Modular 45 smartwatch is worthy of the Tag name. It begins by allowing you to take advantage of the modular options to customize the watch to your liking, including mixing and matching straps, modules and lugs. With a face displaying 326ppi and compatible with your Android or iOS phone, it offers the same functions as the other smartwatch options but with more options for a look that fits your style.
