The award will be given out during the Mobile World Congress 2016 show in Barcelona, Feb. 22-26, 2016. This chic, but boldy-styled wearable tech timepiece will be on display at the Sequel AG/GUESS Watches booth in Hall Congress Square Stand CS124.

GUESS CONNECT smartwatches simultaneously offer voice command functions while providing hands-free and eyes-free notifications to the wrist from thousands of popular apps and programs. The watches sync to an iOS or Android smartphone with the use of Bluetooth.
GUESS CONNECT smartwatches uniquely house a fully-contained Martian module that sports a microphone and clear audio speaker. This allows users to connect to their smartphone's resident voice command app, so wearers can give voice commands, talk and listen, and respond to texts and emails directly from the watch. Using the free iOS & Android App, users can also customize which notifications are received on the watch, recall the most recent notifications with just a tap of the watch glass and create customizable vibration patterns to distinguish the type of alert that is coming in, making the watch more intuitive and creating another level of efficiency for the user.
Pricing and Availability
GUESS CONNECT watches are available at a retail USD price starting at $379 through GUESS stores and other select retailers worldwide.
