Marc Jacobs has launched their first Wear OS smartwatch and wearable tech user will be pleased with the design. Unlike the square dialed Apple watch, Marc Jacobs’ Riley Touchscreen features a traditional round case and dial with a 1.19-inch AMOLED display. On the side of the case is a button (in place of a crown) which can be used to control the watch if you would rather avoid the touch display.
The device features the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100, although the RAM and internal memory are undisclosed. This smartwatch has a 24 hour battery life and can be charged wirelessly. As with other smartwatches, you can keep track of calls, texts and other notifications as well as access Google Assistant.
You can choose from three variants, an all-black watch, a gold watch with a white strap, and a rose gold watch with a grey strap. The straps are all silicone, not as attractive as a fabric strap or a faux leather strap would have been but perhaps more suited to the younger customers that the brand is wooing with these products.
You can buy the Riley smartwatches from Marc Jacobs for $295 from next month.
