Italian fashion house Emporio Armani is adding to its smartwatch range with a selection of new touchscreen devices. Already available to preorder, the latest models bring new functionality and go on sale globally from September.
The new set of smartwatches come with 1.19-inch AMOLED touchscreens and are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 SoC. These new models run Google Wear OS and are compatible with iPhone and Android smartphones.
Building on previous Emporio Armani smartwatches, as well as the updated features of Wear OS, the smartwatches bring fresh functionality, such as heart rate tracking, NFC payments and integrated Google Assistant.
They are also water-resistant to 30 metres -- perfect for showering or swimming with the watch – and have an onboard GPS.
For the launch of its latest creations, Emporio Armani has revealed new Autumn/Winter 2018 ads fronted by the brand's global watch ambassador, Shawn Mendes. – AFP Relaxnews
