Following in the footsteps of the Skagen Hagen Connected and Fossil Q54 Pilot smart analogue watches, the Android and iOS watches all offer an automatic time zone mode, the ability to set alarms, notification support, activity and sleep tracking powered by Misfit, the ability to control music playback and wirelessly take photos with your smartphone.

The Connected line all feature 22mm watch cases and are slapped with 3ATM water resistance ratings so they're splash resistant but not primed for the swimming pool. You'll also spot the secondary progress dial to quickly glance your activity tracking. There's a coin cell battery to keep them powered, so you'll get months of power.

The Emporio Armani Connected collection of smartwatches is available now from the Emporio Armani Connected website. Prices start from and go all the way up to for the priciest model if you want to get your hands on one.
