Emporio Armani's first Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch coming on September 14

Emporio Armani has this week unveiled their new Connected Touchscreen Smartwatch which will be launching later this year on September 14th, 2017 and will be powered by Google's Android Wear operating system specifically designed for wearable devices.

Emporio Armani Connected is a Fossil-made smartwatch, so you can expect more-or-less the same support and hardware as what has been done on other Fossil smartwatches. The company's hybrid smartwatches will also be available on the same date. The company - with singer Shawn Mendes as their spokesperson at the event - introduced its first touch-screen smartwatch collection at the Milan Fashion Week recently.

Coming to the specifications of the Connected smartwatch, the device runs Android Wear 2.0. It will have exchangeable watch straps, metal, leather and fabric. The new series is a part of Fossil Group 300 smartwatch models, scheduled to launch later this year. But other than that, we don't have more specific specs on the device.

The watch also offers typical Android Wear 2.0 features like Google Assistant, but also includes a handful of Armani-specific watchfaces. Additionally, you will also be able to control music on your smartphone using your smartwatch. However, we have no idea yet on its price range.

It is expected that the upcoming smart watch from Armani will cost nothing less than $300. There's no word on the resolution but Fossil has told numerous news outlets that it is "high resolution" so users will have to wait until it's available to see what that actually means.
