Movado Group has officially announced its jump into the Android Wear game. The American company has announced the Movado Connect collection, which will launch in the fall of 2017 in five men's styles. No mention of anything for women yet.
We've already published our first look Movado Connect review so head there for our early impressions. ButMovado says the watches will support Android Pay and come with five specially designed, customisable watch faces based on Movado watches. Those watch faces will take inspiration from Movado's classic museum dial design, which was originally made for New York City's Museum of Modern Art. And of course, it will come running Android Wear 2.0.
The watchmaker is currently showing off the Connect at Baselworld 2017, and we'll bring you more information when we get our hands on one. Prices for Movado's Connect watches will start at $495, and they'll be available in the US, UK, Canada and Caribbean.
This technically isn't the first smartwatch from Movado, which teamed up with HP for a smart analogue watch called the Movado Bold Motion back in 2015. Like Fossil, Movado licences a number of other brands too including Tommy Hilfiger and Hugo Boss, both of which will also be launching Android Wear watches this fall, Movado confirmed - and showing them off at Baselworld.
