Damn GUESS Damn! As someone who has never really been a massive fan of GUESS, (bling bling has never been my thing) you have won me over. I opened up the new GUESS CONNECT watch today and had a little bit of a woah moment. It's sexy hot. Rose Gold and Navy Blue, what can I say it's gorgeous and that's just the start.
This is a watch that I would not wear with Lorna Jane but with Manning Cartel. It's not a fitness tracker it's a life saver. I am guilty of sterotyping the GUESS girl as a leopard print, mirrored sunglass wearer who probally wouldn't know what a smart watch is but she has grown up and I am obscenely wrong. This watch is clever and designed for today's industrious girl, the new GUESS girl. It's where fashion meets lifestyle functionality. As someone who walks around all day with their phone in their hand this watch is perfect for me. It just made my everyday life easier.
If you have an iPhone it works off Siri and if you have an Android Google voice/now or svoice. Press the top button and talk as you would to Siri, e.g. call ????? or text????? and away you go. From my use the voice starts to become unclear when you are more than about three meters away from your phone, but if your phone is in your pocket or bag its perfect. You can also set it up to scroll incoming texts, call alerts, emails, Facebook updates, and anything else that uses push notifications on your phone and then customise the vibration alerts. It is clean and simple to setup and use. It has a camera function, find your phone function and a dual power source. The analogue movement (standard battery life of 2+ years), and a SMART module, which has a battery life of 3-5 days so you will need to charge it a couple of times a week.
It's a big thing for me to gush so much over a GUESS watch of all things but I am sold. The combination of clever and couture has won me over and for once I am happy to be proven wrong.
