Emporio Armani Connected smartwatch brings Android Wear 2.0 and a touch of class

From smartWATCH to SMARTwatch Emporio Armani, the youth-minded branch of the Armani brand, is back with a new watch, this time with all the smarts of Android Wear 2.0. And today we get a preview of the Emporio Armani Connected touchscreen smartwatch.

The original had no screen or OS. It was more Withings-like – an analog watch with a connected dial that displayed your activity throughout the day (e.g. steps taken).

The upcoming model set to launch September 24 maintains the classic look with a round screen, a crown and two side buttons. It will have exchangeable watch straps, metal, leather and fabric.
