The Guess Connect watches feature Snapdragon Wear 2100 processors, and because they run Android Wear 2.0, they include features like handwriting and a keyboard for text replies.

Ahead of the launch, a lot of information has surfaced about the watch.

Guess is the latest to prove that in 2017, it's finally possible to choose a smartwatch made by brand that understands fashion and style, rather than just technology.

It's been common knowledge for a while that ZTE is preparing to release its first Android Wear-powered smartwatch, the Quartz.

While we haven't seen too much in the way of must-have Android Wear 2.0 wearables from traditional tech companies like LG or Google, fashion watch makers are fully embracing Google's new mobile OS.

The company is going to sell its new smartwatch in navy blue and several blinged out metallic finishes in rose gold, gold, and silver colors.

What do you think of the Guess Connect? The report tells us the Quartz doesn't come with NFC onboard, which means no Android Pay functionality just like in the case of the LG Watch Style. It's also good to see Guess offering a smaller size for ladies, which is something we don't often see from Android Wear device makers.

To recap, Guess's first stint with smartwatches was in collaboration with Martian. This time around, Guess seems to be more focused on its target consumer base and by the looks of it (pictures), the new version looks trendier.
