Guess Watches has launched a wearable tech timepiece, Guess Connect with Martian Watches—a California-based developer of fashionable smart watches. Based on its global best-selling style called Rigor, the bold smartwatch is powered by Martian technology to keep Guess Connect watches fresh and relevant for years to come.
The watches are 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. Available for men and women, the Guess Connect collection houses a fully-contained Martian module that sports a microphone and clear audio speaker. It allows users to connect to their smartphone’s resident voice command app, and wearers can give voice commands, talk and listen, and respond to texts directly from the watch. In addition, using the free iOS and Android App, users can customize notifications to received on the watch, create unique vibration patterns to distinguish between alert types, and recall the most recent notifications with just a tap of the watch glass.
Cindy Livingston, President and CEO of Sequel / GUESS Watches said, “The Guess Connect Smartwatch, Powered by Martian, represents one of the first true marriages of a fashion watch powerhouse and a wireless technology innovator. We are thrilled to move in this direction with a proven technology innovator to create smart, Guess designs.”
