Time to ring home on a smartwatch

Fashion brand Guess, in collaboration with Martian Watches, a California based award-winning developer of smartwatches, has come up with a designer timepiece which will keep you connected when you're on the road.

The Guess Connect watch is powered by smartwatch technology and while it may look all style, it does, in fact, have a small strip for LED text on its face where you'll get text messages and weather updates.

The watch will also let you use Siri or Google Now, or respond to text messages with your voice.

You can make and receive phone calls, and can customise vibrations for different kinds of notifications.

The watch uses Bluetooth Low Energy for most of its communications yet switches to standard Bluetooth for voice control. It costs approx. €300.
