Kate Spade New York introduces its first sport smartwatch
Kate Spade New York’s newest touchscreen smartwatch is not only functional, it’s stylish.
The Sport Smartwatch is dressed in three color combinations – black and lilac, pink and red and evergreen and black. It’s powered with OS by Google and the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 platform.
Designed to keep women connected during all facets of their lives, new elements include silicone straps with eye-catching plunge detailing – a nod to the plunge seen in the shape of a spade – along with a glass fiber reinforced resin color-pop case, a lightweight aluminum top ring with scallop edging, and a signature pink enamel pusher. This pusher activates the fan favorite "choose your look" micro app, which allows users to select a dial customized according to her outfit.
Kate Spade New York smartwatches are known for their playful and whimsical digital dials, and a new "spades" dial features floating spades that move when she does.
“Our customer is adventurous — she loves all kinds of activities and is always looking for accessories that fit into her everyday life. The new Sport Smartwatch does exactly that,” said Nicola Glass, creative director, Kate Spade New York. “We've incorporated some of our most iconic design elements, including the spade and scallop detailing, to give the watch a distinct Kate Spade New York look and feel while the silicone strap and light weight design gives her the functionality she needs without sacrificing style."
The Sport Smartwatch uses Google Fit to track activities. While in workout mode, Google Fit can continuously track heart rate and steps and notifies users on goal progress and completion.
Other functions include untethered GPS, proactive help form the Google Assistant, ability to connect and control Spotify from your wrist, make purchases via your NFC-enabled smartwatch using Google Play, weather updates and water resistant.
The smartwatch is in Kate Spade stores and online at katespade.com. Cost is $275.
