Each dial traverses through Movado’s iconic single dot design. It also includes brilliant new color, dimension, complication, details and day to night transformation.

The Movado Connect is the flagship device. Movado is the fifth largest watch brand in the world. Movado launched another smartwatch last year with HP. This year it is back at Baselworld 2017 with a complete Android Wear 2.0 collection. Movado is taking its ambitions to the next level with the launch of Movado Connect.

This thrilling new collection is coming this year in fall. It comes with 5 men’s styles presented on strap or bracelet, powered by Android Wear.
Android Wear 2.0.
The Movado Connect comes with multiple design and strap options. This watch delivers style better than others. The gold-lugged and gunmetal Movados look excellent. But there is a standard black stainless steel with the black rubber strap looks a bit techy. The colours on the Movado Connect are vibrant. The blacks were very black and the visuals were crisp. The Movado sports a single button at 3 o’clock. This brings the apps menu and sends you back to the home screen. But overall it’s a pretty simple Android Wear 2.0 experience. NFC has been built-in for Android Pay.
Movado’s iconic dot dominates the Movado logo. There is a particular watch face that uses the circle at 12 o’clock. It changes colour – from dawn to dusk. It shows a visual representation of the time of day. Movado Connect has a decent materials and a bold design. Not everybody would like this design. Those looking for a traditional wrist watch can look elsewhere. But if you are one those shout loud about their smartwatch, and don’t want to compromise on the design, should definitely go for the Movado Connect.
