Continuing the momentum of Android Wearlast year, these models seem to promise extra style on the new feature.
The Kate Spade New York Slacklop Android Wear watch has "customizable animated dials that will delight you as you go about your day." Winking eyes, daisy petals falling and zooming New York City taxis keep the fun going With each step, the exciting effects of climate on the globe allow the user to verify if the weather is sunny, rainy or cloudy at their location. " The watch design has a scalloped bezel. It is a 42 mm stainless steel watch larger, with metal or leather bands of 16 mm, water resistant but without heart rate.
The Skagen Falster smart watch has an extreme minimalist look that looks quite sharp, and is in keeping with other Skagen watches. The same story: a 42mm stainless steel case, with 20mm leather straps ($ 275) or metal mesh ($ 299), no heart rate.
