It’s actually a really sexy piece of technology. GUESS is known for its bags and shoes, but has been producing watches for more than 30 years. First announced at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (and being distinguished as a CES 2015 Innovation Award Honoree), the uber stylish GUESS Connect smartwatch is finally out in stores. Based on their global best-selling silhouette, RIGOR, the smartwatch adopts the same technology that award-winning smartwatch brand Martian Watches uses, which means that the software is updatable and replaceable to keep the GUESS Connect smartwatch evergreen, fresh and relevant for many, many years. The GUESS Connect smartwatches will house a fully-contained Martian module that has a microphone and clear audio speaker to offer voice command functions and notifications from a variety of apps. Best thing about it is that it’s friendly for both iOS and Android operating systems, which means that you’ll be able to customise what notifications you’ll be receiving, recall the most recent ones with a simple tap of the watch glass and create customisable vibration patterns so you’ll know exactly what type of alert it is; no matter what phone you’re using. The watch will be available in 41mm and 45mm size options, with four different styles.

GUESS Connect, $559. Available at GUESS retail and major department stores.
