Hugo Boss and Tommy Hilfiger are the latest fashion companies to announce their own Android Wear 2.0 watches at Baselworld 2017. They have continued the trend we’ve been seeing of fashion brands stepping up in the smartwatch market.
Hugo Boss’ watch, Touch, looks a bit more formal and appears to have a leather band option. According to Wareable, the Touch will offer NFC but not a heart rate sensor. It has a classy look but it’s probably not the sort of watch you’d wear on a run anyway. The Touch is expected to cost $395 when it hits the market in August.
Tommy Hilfiger’ watch, TH24/7You, is a more casual looking one with a chain link strap. It doesn’t have NFC or the heart monitor making it cheaper than the ‘Touch’. In doing so Tommy Hilfiger has undercut its rival with a $299 price point.
Unfortunately, neither watch has a lot of details right now when it comes to specifications. They both run Android Wear 2.0, but actual information on the hardware have yet to be announced.
