Kate Spade smartwatches upgraded to include heart rate monitoring, payments and onboard GPS.


Fossil Group has unveiled a new generation of smartwatches at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas including the Scallop Smartwatch 2, produced under license from Kate Spade New York.

It is the first smartwatch developed since Nicola Glass took over as creative director at the fashion house and includes fresh technical features including heart rate tracking, payment technology, and GPS capabilities.

“We thoughtfully designed our Scallop Smartwatch 2 for the women of today, who want to stay connected to what matters most in a way that’s stylish and authentic to them,” said Ms Glass. “We combined our feminine design details, including our signature spade and scallop detailing, with the latest technology and customization features for her everyday needs. She can track her heart rate and customise the dial to complement what she’s wearing. This smartwatch is a sophisticated blend of style and function. An everyday luxury.”
