Emporio Armani Connected smartwatch brings Android Wear 2.0 and a touch of class

Peter, 20 June 2017

From smartWATCH to SMARTwatch – Emporio Armani, the youth-minded branch of the Armani brand, is back with a new watch, this time with all the smarts of Android Wear 2.0. And today we get a preview of the Emporio Armani Connected touchscreen smartwatch.

The original had no screen or OS. It was more Withings-like - an analog watch with a connected dial that displayed your activity throughout the day (e.g. steps taken).

The upcoming model – set to launch September 24 – maintains the classic look with a round screen, a crown and two side buttons. It will have exchangeable watch straps, metal, leather and fabric.

Further details are scarce. It will work with both Android and iOS, and it will deliver notifications, track activity, control music and everything else you’ve come to expect from Android Wear.

The price is kept under wraps, but the original Emporio Armani Connected watch launched at $300, so this one should cost at least that much. (side note: the brown leather watch is currently $207, if you prefer analog)

Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani are the only ones which Giorgio Armani has a hand in the design. Giorgio has nothing to do with the design under the Armani Exchange brand although the Giorgio Armani company does now fully own the brand.
