More and more traditional smartwatch makers enter the smartwatch market, introducing some pretty cool Android Wear 2.0-powered devices, perfect for those who are looking for models that don’t actually look like a smartwatch!
To be more specific, we’re talking about Diesel, Hugo Boss and Tommy Hilfiger, which announced three new models this week, at BaselWorld. However, the bad part is that, except a couple of images with the actual smartwatches and the fact that they will be powered by Google’s latest iteration of Android Wear, nothing about the specs was revealed.
First of all, we have the Diesel On, a smartwatch with a rugged look and, apparently, powered by a Snapdragon Wear 2100 chip. It will cost $325 and nothing else about the display size or connectivity options is known.
Next, we have Hugo Boss Touch, the manufacturer’s first Android Wear smartwatch, made of carbon black IP stainless steel, with interchangeable straps. We do know that it has NFC, but no heart rate sensor, while the price will be $395, when it will be released, in August.
Finally, let’s not forget about the Tommy Hilfiger TH24, with the same Snapdragon Wear 2100 chip under the hood, but no NFC or heart rate sensor. It will retail for $299, later this year.
We must admit that these new models are a great addition for the smartphone market, since there are a lot of potential buyers out here who were looking forward to buy a wearable, but they weren’t fancying the sporty look, in some way or another, of most models!
