Emporio Armani Connected now available for purchase

Emporio Armani Connected hybrid connected watch starts at $245 USD
Emporio Armani Connected
This first connected luxury watch by Emporio Armani is the result of a partnership with Fossil and comes with basic features, but promises to offer an impressive battery life of no less than six months, all for a price tag starting below $250 USD.

Emporio Armani is well known for its luxury products, but the new Connected lineup of smart wearables is a first. Born as the result of a collaboration between the iconic fashion brand and well-known watchmaker Fossil, the Emporio Armani Connected watch looks like a classic timepiece but offers a few connected features and promises to deliver an impressive autonomy.

Emporio Armani Connected has no rotating bezels or multitouch support. However, it comes with a rather long list of connected features (it obviously needs a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone companion and the right apps to work properly):

  • activity tracking
  • music control (start/stop/skip commands for the music app running on the smartphone companion)
  • sleep tracking
  • smartphone camera control
  • finding a lost smartphone
  • alarm
  • discreet notifications for calls, messages, and so on
  • automatic time zone adjustment

This new connected watch is available with a leather strap or a three-piece link, the color choices available including black, gunmetal, stainless steel, or rose gold. It can be purchased in select boutiques and wholesale accounts, as well as online, directly from Emporio Armani. Prices start at $250 USD.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
