Regular watches getting smarter seems to be a mini-trend at this year's CES: first the, and now Martian's updated lineup of watches. The launched last year, and now there's four new watches plus the special Guess Connect, a Guess-designed variant on Martian's technology.
Some are glitzy, others pretty elegant; all of them incorporate voice command like the original Martian Passport. And none of them look like smartwatches.
The Guess Connect looks like most high-end, but there are also four other designs: the Martian Aviator, Martian Commander, Martian Electra and Martian Monarch.
They all basically work the same: charging via USB, several days of battery life, a small OLED banner display on the bottom for messages. Vibrations can be customized in a ton of ways for various different types of phone notifications. A built-in microphone can work with voice commands, both on Google Voice and Siri.
Martian's latest watches will be available by summer, and work with both iOS and Android.
