Following the debut of Android Wear 2.0 OEMs are coming out left and right to announce their new wearables running the OS. Earlier this month Movado announced that it would be making its first Android Wear smartwatch this year, but didn’t give us any images to go along with it. Now, we’re finally getting a look at that upcoming release…

The best gifts for Android users

Via the official Android Wear account on Twitter, we get our first look at the Movado Connect. This upcoming smartwatch will pack features like NFC for Android Pay, and at a glance the button on this watch looks like it could potentially pack a rotating crown, although that isn’t confirmed as of yet.

The overall design seems very sleek and minimalistic, and personally, I absolutely love it. We’ll hopefully learn more about the Connect as it’s displayed at Baselworld 2017. As for a release date, all we know so far is that Movado is aiming for a launch in Fall 2017. More information is available in our original post.

This fall, Movado will introduce a touchscreen smartwatch that brings midcentury modern design into the new millennium with cutting-edge technology. One of the first watches designed specifically for Android Wear 2.0, this smartwatch features over 100 fascinating dial variations. Each dial explores Movado’s iconic single dot design with brilliant new color, dimension, complication, details and day to night transformation.

Movado Connect offers a modern design aesthetic with smooth edge-to-edge crystal and an ‘always-on’ display. Paired with the latest technology platform, it can access thousands of apps, receive/read push notifications, integrate with Google fit and health app, and is compatible with Google Assistant for performing tasks, getting answers, directions and timely reminders.

This exciting new collection launches this fall with 5 men’s styles presented on strap or bracelet, powered by Android Wear.
