“The world today does not stop for a second, and technology must adapt to new needs – hyper connectivity rules our day to day, and a more “smart” lifestyle us now within reach of our wrist,” the Spanish business adds.


Festina SmarTime watches come in three female stainless steel models, one with zircons on the bezel, and another one with a rosé PVD finish with and without zircons on the bezel.

They come with fashion-forward interchangeable straps in denim, padded leather in red and black.

Their sapphire touch screens provide access to functions such as activity monitoring for sports such as cycling and running including tracking of steps, distance covered and calories burned.
