The devices resemble traditional analog watches but include a variety of smart features built-in, such as tracking daily activity and alerting you to incoming calls and texts through vibration.
"Today, technology decisively influences our daily lives. There's an app for everything, and I find that in many cases they're inventions that actually improve our lives," fashion powerhouse Giorgio Armani said in a statement. "I'm delighted to present a hybrid smartwatch, which marks the entrance of Emporio Armani -- a brand always at the forefront of innovation -- into the world of connected accessories."
The watches are available in a variety of colors and designs. Each brand's line of hybrid smartwatches is available starting Tuesday on their respective websites. Prices ranging from about $150 to $350.
