The Skagen Hagen Connected is a fine example of a smartwatch that looks just like a standard but comes with smart features to help people deal with their daily activities. It’s a watch that’s perfect for people who wants a classic timepiece on their wrist while being able to do a lot more with it.
The design of the Skagen ‘Hagen Connected’ is inspired from Fossil’s line of smart analogue watches. This is no surprise since the Skagen is owned by Fossil group. The timepiece is a beauty to look at with its stainless steel mesh band which gives it a more premium look. There are also other bands to choose with made from leather or silicone.
The watch has activity tracking on board which counts things like steps and distance traveled. There is a smart vibration feature which will buzz every time you get an email or text. You are free to customize the type of notifications you want to receive via its companion app which is available in iOS and Android versions.
Features like the Skagen’s Link technology is also present here. The feature allows you to capture a photo, control your music, track your daily goals and ring your phone with the use of the physical button on the right side of the watch. Standard watch features like the automatic time and date update which is a great feature especially if you travel a lot to places with different time zones.
The Hagen Connected is powered by a standard cell battery which means you don’t need to charge it. The company says the battery should last for about six month before it needs replacing.
