Hybrid smartwatches have become a lot popular these days. These are devices that are one step away from becoming a full smartwatch. One of the interesting hybrid smartwatches that has been getting a lot of attention is the Emporio Armani Connected Hybrid Smartwatch. This is Emporio Armani’s first entry into the wearable tech industry. It is important to note that Emporio Armani is first and foremost a fashion company, so it should be interesting to see what they can bring to the table when it comes to wearable tech.
The Emporio Armani Connected Hybrid Smartwatch is essentially an Emporio Armani product, through and through. Its design and style is reminiscent of other Emporio Armani watches. The Emporio Armani Connected Hybrid Smartwatch looks like an ordinary analog watch but it does come with Bluetooth Smart for syncing with your smartphone. It is currently offered in full stainless steel or with leather straps.
What I like the most about this hybrid smartwatch is its design. It’s hard not to appreciate the look and style of the watch. And while it does look really good, the watch also doesn’t miss out on its functionalities. It has a couple of smartwatch functions that includes smart notifications, all day activity tracking, alarms, vibration alerts and music and camera control. Daily activity tracking works really well and you can see all your tracked stats on the Emporio Armani Connected mobile app.

Full touchscreen smartwatch may not be enjoying good sales right now but hybrid smartwatches, on the other hand, continues to see an increase in demand. This is because hybrid smartwatches like the Emporio Armani Connected Hybrid Smartwatch, in particular, offers a good combination of modern style of classic watches that comes plenty of connected features.
A beautiful hybrid smartwatch that should appeal to anyone looking for a dress watch with connected features.
