Smart watches are some of the most advanced pieces of technology you can get right now, so if you're using a portable kit, fashion brands are offering something that costs a little more for an alternative design.
That's what we have with the Emporio Armani Smartwatch 3 and the Diesel On Axial Smartwatch, the newest team of two of the biggest fashion brands.
The two new smart watches have just been presented, available in collections with different designs and colors. . Both are based on previous devices, the Emporio Armani Connected and Diesel On Full Guard 2.5 respectively (no, neither conforms to any type of naming convention), but they bring new features and designs to the table.
The devices are similar in terms of technology, but it is their appearance that distinguishes them.
Both devices will be out in October, so if you're interested, they'll be out just in time to be added to your Christmas list.
Emporio Armani Smartwatch 3
The Emporio Armani Smartwatch 3 works with Google's Wear operating system and works with the Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset, which brings with it better energy savings and the option of a screen always on, although We are not sure if that is going to be enabled.
The Smartwatch 3 has 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage and premium features such as microphone, speaker, accelerator, gyroscope and built-in flashlight.
There are fitness functions like a heart & # 39; improved & # 39; frequency monitor, impermeability and goal tracking, but this portable device is certainly not an exercise tracker in the background.
In fact, the point of sale is the design of the watch. It has a 1.28 inch AMOELD screen, with an elegant stainless steel case. There are few different models, and the only difference between them are the highlights of the case: there are black, silver, gold, green, blue and red. It certainly looks minimalist, but that only leaves more room for the screen.
The Armani Smartwatch 3 will sell for $ 395 (approximately £ 320, AU $ 590), so it is a high-end device, but expect to be given the name in the brand.
Diesel On Axial Smartwatch
The Diesel On Axial has basically the same specifications as the Emporio Armani Smartwatch 3, up to the AMOLED screen of 1.28 inches. It works with Wear OS, works with Snapdragon Wear 3100 and has a range of lifestyle and fitness functions.
The real difference between the two devices is the design, with Diesel with a stainless steel case and ring on top, making it a slightly bulky device, but as a result it seems more resistant.
There are some different finishes for the devices in the Diesel collection, and there are quite a few differences between each other, rather than the Armani device. You can pick it up with some combinations of strap and ring color and material, depending on which device appeals to you most.
Diesel's Axial smart watch is a less expensive touch than Armani's, and will cost you $ 350 (around £ 290, AU $ 520) when available.
Although each of the smart watches certainly looks good, we will wait until we actually use them before we can make a final judgment, so look for our Smartwatch 3 and in the Axial reviews before the products fall , to determine if they are excellent smartwatches or simply pieces of redundant technology of good appearance.
