Kate Spade Smartwatch. KS New York is taking on the fashiontech landscape at CES 2018 with its new Scallop Touchscreen Smartwatch. If you’re a fan of the playful, cute, and ultra-feminine fashion styles you should start paying attention to Kate Spade’s line of smartwatches. The collection is expanding with a new line called New York Scallop.
Debuting at CES 2018 amongst a whole Spring 2018 Fossil Group line-up, the new Kate Spade smartwatch features a circular 1.19-inch AMOLED display with a respectable 390 x 390 resolution. Style-wise, as the name suggests, Kate Spade smartwatch features a scallop-like design around the bezel and on the crown.
The 42mm diameter makes it a rather large smartwatch for a woman’s wrist. The case is made from stainless steel with a 16mm lug width. The smartwatch comes in three styles as in gold-tone finish with black leather strap, rose gold-tone with a rose gold-tone steel bracelet, and rose gold-tone with a ‘vachetta’ leather strap.
One of the more interesting aspects of this watch is the ‘Choose Your Look’ feature. CYL is, in fact, an app which allows the wearer to select a matching colour profile for the watch face, based on the outfit you wear that day. As such, you can change the look and style of your Scallop Kate Spade smartwatch to match your outfit by answering a few basic questions through the app. Then, the app finds the most suitable watch face based on your time of the day, type of jewellery worn, general colour of clothing and other accessories. More software tweaks include customisable dials and weather effects based on your current weather conditions.
Specs wise, the Scallop smartwatch matches the current range of Android smartwatches available on the market as it runs Android Wear 2.0, powered by a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor. The watch is waterproof up to 1 ATM and lasts up to 24 hours on a single charge, helped out by an ambient light sensor that controls the display. The Kate Spade smartwatch can connect to both Android and iPhone and smartphones via Bluetooth 4.1. It runs on Android Wear and can deliver notifications, third-party apps, fitness tracking, music with 4GB of storage, Google Assistant voice controls, and so much more.
The Kate Spade New York Scallop smartwatch collection is expected to go on sale online and in stores next month in February 2018. However, you can pre-order it right now on the official website, from the link below.
