If you were holding out hope for a Pixel Watch this year, it's pretty evident that you can give up on that. However, that doesn't mean we don't have some smartwatches to get excited about.
Yesterday, we saw the launch of Huawei's latest Watch GT 2, and today, Movado is joining the fray with its new Connect 2.0.
The Movado Connect 2.0 is the first smartwatch from the company since 2017, and as such, it comes packing some major technical upgrades. The Connect 2.0 runs the latest Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of Storage.
It also offers two different sizes to choose from, either 40mm or 42mm, and features an AMOLED display. Of course, it wouldn't be a Movado watch if it didn't exude style with a modern design.
The new Connect 2.0 comes in a variety of finishes, including Black, Gold, and Rose Gold, while also offering a selection of interchangeable bands to choose from made of leather, fabric, or metal.
As for any additional features and sensors, the Movado Connect 2.0 includes GPS, a heart rate monitor, microphone, rotating crown, two programmable buttons, ambient light sensor, gyroscope, and even an altimeter. Unfortunately, there is no mention of a speaker, if that's something you were looking for.
The Movado Connect 2.0 is available for pre-order starting today with styles starting at $495 with orders expecting to ship by October 14. It might not be the most affordable smartwatch around, but who said style comes cheap?
Style meets smart.
The Movado Connect 2.0 is the latest smartwatch from the fashion watch brand running a Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. It has all the sensors and features you'd expect from a modern Wear OS watch, minus the speaker.

Beautiful design but too steep for my blood.
I have the older Movado and I like it a lot. I'm sure that it has a microphone because I can answer calls. But perhaps it's using the microphone on my phone in my pocket. My only complaint is that the battery seems to be dying and there's no way to replace it.
Beautiful watch and I'd have no issues spending the money if it had: 1)An updated processor with Bluetooth 5 2) Being able to squeeze two days
Will you guys be reviewing this? I currently have it but my battery life is STRUGGLING. 12 Hours Max. Wanted to see what others are getting
