Movado's Android Wear device looks like its regular watches

Movado Connect features the brand's single dot watchface design.


Movado has revealed its first Android Wear watch at Baselworld 2017, a few weeks after it announced its first solo foray into smartwatches. The American watchmaker calls its creation Movado Connect, a timepiece with edge-to-edge, always-on display specifically designed for Wear 2.0. It will come loaded with over 100 watchfaces, but they'll all look familiar if you've ever had one of the company's creations: they're all variations of the brand's iconic single dot design. Not surprising really, since even Movado's collaboration with HP also featured a single dot watchface.

Connect also comes with all the features you'd expect from an Android Wear device. You can use it to make purchases with Android Pay, and you can ask it to perform tasks, answer questions and give you directions through Google Assistant. It has access to all Wear 2.0 apps, can integrate with Google Fit and Health apps and receive push notifications. The company will release styles for men this fall with straps and bracelets. Unfortunately, it didn't say whether it plans to release smaller versions for women -- we'll just have to wait for Movado to reveal more info.
