Guess launches new Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch

Guess Connect smartwatch gets an Android Wear 2.0 makeover

The Guess Connect and Gc Connect (above) will both run Android Wear 2.0 and will be powered by a Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, which is fine.

Ahead of the launch, a lot of information has surfaced about the watch.

Guess will also be releasing a consumer-branded Connect watch in 44mm and 41mm cases, with the ladies mode available in silver, gold, and rose gold, and adorned with clear crystals around the bezel. It's unclear if the smartwatch comes with LTE connectivity, but it should have 3G anyway. 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. 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 report tells us the Quartz doesn't come with NFC onboard, which means no Android Pay functionality just like in the case of the LG Watch Style.

Guess wants you to buy its smartwatches.

Android Wear has struggled with mass adoption, but manufacturers aren't giving up hope just yet.

No word as yet on how much the new Guess Connect smartwatch is going to cost and when customers who are looking to pick one up will be able to buy it. This time, Guess is working with Google and Qualcomm, and the result looks considerably smarter. Guess Connect Android Wear is expected to go on sale sometime later this year - in Fall / Winter 2017.
