PROS

  • The Guess Connect features an attractive design and a stylish leather strap.
  • Its battery life is better than that of many smartwatches.
  • It it both a smartwatch and an analog watch.

CONS

  • The display is truly tiny.
  • The Guess Connect does not include any fitness-tracking features.
  • The watch is not water resistant.
If you took a traditional analog watch and added a splash of smartwatch functionality, you might end up with the Guess Connect. It features a traditional watch face with hands and a dial to move them, but it adds a small digital display along the bottom. Here, notifications from a connected Android or iOS smartphone are displayed, including incoming calls and messages. All the notifications are handled by technology licensed from third-party company Martian, which allows you to interact with your phone by voice, using either Apple’s Siri or Google Now. The watch also can control music playback and the camera on your phone.

Combining the Guess style with the Martian Watches tech is a great move and one that seems to work seamlessly. The design of the Guess Connect is one we really got on board with, but seeing what it will be able to do in the flesh has won us over and we can't wait to review it in full. Our first impressions are that the Guess Connect is a stunning smartwatch that is a true leader when it comes to combining fashion and tech.

Guess isn't a tech company. It's a fashion label that has an extensive portfolio of analog watches. In 2015 it announced a partnership with Martian to co-produce a smartwatch, and this is the result: the Guess Connect. And it might be my favorite smartwatch yet.
