Martian Notifier

Apparently, conventional watchmakers couldn't resist the allure of smartwatches for very long. Guess Watches has just unveiled a partnership with Martian Watches to develop style-conscious, voice-guided smart wristwear. Details for the new wearables are scarce right now, but the two brands are promising hardware that doesn't just "try to mimic the smartphone" -- it has to look good on top of being functional. You'll find out more when the first Guess/Martian devices are unveiled in early 2015, but it's safe to presume that Guess will handle most of the external design, while Martian will handle the technology inside.
