Guess launches new Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch

Going for a full circular touchscreen face style compared to the original Connect's hybrid mechanical look, it's powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon Wear 2100 chip.

Ahead of the launch, a lot of information has surfaced about the watch. It's unclear if the smartwatch comes with LTE connectivity, but it should have 3G anyway. The 41mm case size variant is sleeker and would garner female buyers while the 44mm case size is sturdier and hence best suited for male customers. Accompanying the different body styles are more than 100 different watch face and sub-dial combinations, ready to fine tune the Connect's look even further, plus a range of straps.

Swiss luxury watch manufacturer Gc is among those, with an announcement that it will be offering Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches this year. Another nifty feature on the watch would be its ability to send text messages straight from the watch by using keyboard or handwriting recognition. The watches are compatible with Android and iOS smartphones. These apps include fitness apps as well. Google Assistant will also be a part of the package, hopefully.

Guess is the latest to prove that in 2017, it's finally possible to choose a smartwatch made by brand that understands fashion and style, rather than just technology. In the past week, Tag Heuer and Montblanc have both announced Android Wear 2.0-powered smartwatches, and now Guess is looking to get some skin in the game too.

The Guess Connect is the worst offender.
