Smartwatches are the latest trend for your wrists, with all the technology of a smartphone packed inside a timepiece.
But, for the more old-school watch-wearers among us, the transition into the future has created fears that the classical, smart look of some of the finest watches could be lost in favour of technology. Fortunately, some watch brands have got you covered.
Apple and Samsung aren't the only brands who are putting out smartwatches as brands with more tradition and heritage in the watchmaking game are putting out these futuristic timepieces, too. The likes of Giorgio Armani, Michael Kors and Fossil can be found at Gassan, the iconic Amsterdam jeweller that, as shown by collections such as their range of smartwatches, is way more than a jeweller these days.
Their range of super smart smartwatches don't sacrifice their classical look touchscreen watchfaces and the ability to phonecall your friends. Armani's ART5002 keeps a typically, ultra-classy strap from the Italian brand, combined with the ability to connect the watch to your smartphone.
Likewise, Fossil retains their classic leather look with a gorgeous strap on their FTW smartphone range, another worth checking out at Gassan. As for Michael Kors, all the glamour of their consistently eye-catching watches is encaptured in the likes of the MKT5036 that boasts not just a striking look, but amazing tech, too.
So there is still hope for the old-school timepiece rockers among us!
