This all about style. Coming in three distinct designs, the watch offers adorable novelty and classic 41mm display dials to fit your look. Notifications and social media updates feature some pretty nifty animations. You can even see the weather on the 1.2-inch AMOLED display.

In terms of other specs, you get some fitness tracking basics but no heart rate tracking. Battery life is around 24 hours. With shipping expected for February 1, the smartwatch can be pre-ordered on Kate Spade‘s website.

More of the same with the Falster smartwatch. This one comes in a modern, minimalist design with a 42mm stainless steel case that is in keeping with other Skagen watches. This is the Dutch company’s first Android Wear device.

Starting at $275, the Falster touchscreen smartwatch will be available from January 25th. It comes in four colorways: black leather, silver mesh, gold mesh and brown leather, all with a black digital touchscreen.

There is nothing particularly new about either of these two products. Its all about the design and brand.
