The previous smartwatch from the Connected series featured smartphone connectivity option. The buttons on the watch could be used for several smartphone shortcuts such as changing music tracks on smartphone. The hybrid watch also had vibration notification.
The upcoming watch will deliver a full fledged smart device to consumers which would also be a self sufficient smart device in itself unlike the previous model. It will also not compromise on the style front which is Armani's founding stone. It will come with changeable straps similar to it predecessor.
It is expected that the upcoming smart watch from Armani will cost nothing less than $300. Armani is not the first luxury brand to switch to smart device manufacturing. Brands like Fossil have already adopted themselves to the transition and with Armani making a debut in the domain we can expect it todownsize Apple and Samsung's market to an extent.
