Anche quest'anno, il Consumer Electronics Show (CES) ha visto oltre 3.900 espositori focalizzati su prodotti e tecnologie all'avanguardia, che incoraggiano l'innovazione sul mercato.

Nello specifico, sono stati premiati tre brand del gruppo: Kate Spade New York, con lo smartwatch Scallop, il suo primo wearable touch screen con Android Wear, Misfit, con il suo Path, terzo modello ibrido della casa dopo Phase e Command, ed infine Skagen, che con Falster, smartwatch con Android Wear, anche in questo caso il primo touch screen per il brand danese.
Vediamo i dettagli:
Skagen Falster Smartwatch
Android Authority - Best of CES 2018
Android Authority, il famosissimo blog monotematico sul sistema Android, molto conosciuto a livello mondiale, e le cui opinioni ed articoli sono tenuti in stretta considerazione dagli addetti del settore, ha premiato (assieme ad altri prodotti) come "BEST OF CES 2018" il primo smartwatch Android di casa Skagen, il Falster, argomentando così la propria scelta:
Skagen’s claim to fame is its super classy analog watches, and now it’s getting into the smartwatch game.
The Skagen Falster is the company’s very first touchscreen smartwatch. It’s powered by Android Wear, features a fully-round display, and also doesn’t look like a smartwatch, which is very important for some people. Its minimalist, modern design makes it look like a piece of high-end jewelry.
It’s missing a few features that other Android Wear devices bring to the table — like a heart rate monitor, built-in GPS, and LTE connectivity — but if you’re looking for a classy smartwatch that won’t stand out like a computer on your wrist, the Skagen Falster might be just the thing for you.
Stuff - CES 2018 Hot Stuff
Stuff.tv, la versione elettronica della rivista Stuff, la più venduta al mondo in tema di gadgets elettronici, ha nominato (assieme ad altri prodotti) come "CES 2018 Hot Stuff" Skagen Falster, descrivendo così la decisione:
Android Wear 2.0 has scads of fashion brands unleashing their own unique smartwatches, and now Danish maker Skagen is getting onboard with the new Falster watch. It's the company's first fully-touchscreen wristwatch, and while the minimal styling might be unique, the interface will be familiar to anyone who's used a Wear watch. It should ship in the coming months at a starting price of £279.
Kate Spade Scallop Smartwatch
Stuff - CES 2018 Hot Stuff
Stuff.tv, ha nominato (assieme al sopra citato Skagen Falster, e ad altri prodotti) Kate Spade Scallop come "CES 2018 Hot Stuff". Queste le argomentazioni a riguardo:
Speaking of high-end fashion brands jumping on the Android Wear bandwagon – Kate Spade New York also announced its first such smartwatch line, with a trio of compact watches featuring scalloped edges and both yellow gold and rose gold hues. It'll have a custom face, but otherwise it's all Android Wear underneath. Expect these in February starting at £299.
Engadget - Best of CES Finalist
Engadget, blog internazionale attivo nel mondo delle nuove tecnologie e dei gadget elettronici dal 2004, ha nominato (assieme ad altri prodotti) Kate Spade Scallop come finalista "Best of CES 2018" nella categoria Wearable:
Smartwatches designed "for women" aren't new. But smartwatches made by businesses built on knowing what women like are rare. The Kate Spade Scallop may lack the colorful patterns we've come to expect from the brand, but it's still an attractive Android Wear device that lives up to women's tastes.
Digital Trends - Best of CES 2018
Digital Trends, blog internazionale attivo nel mondo delle nuove tecnologie e dei gadget elettronici dal 2004, ha designato (assieme ad altri prodotti) Kate Spade Scallop come finalista "Best of CES 2018" nella categoria Wearables:
Last year, we saw a surge in Android Wear smartwatches from fashion brands, and it looks like that trend is not going to slow down in 2018. Under the Fossil Group, Kate Spade has entered into the smartwatch foray with a beautiful Scallop for women.
The Kate Spade Scallop isn’t packed with gemstones or gimmicky features. It has an understated design that’s not flashy, but what we love most are the quirky watch faces that animate when the watch goes into ambient mode. Kate Spade will release an animated watch face every month after the Scallop’s launch. There’s also a simple and easy-to-use micro app that lets women add the colors of their outfit so the watch can automatically create a complementary watch face.
The Scallop is slim, simple, and elegant. From the spade icon on the crown to the scalloped bezels, the beauty is in the details. There aren’t a lot of smartwatches for women that are this well thought out, and that’s why the Scallop is our pick.
PCMag - Best Smartwatch of CES 2018
PCMag, edizione digitale della rivista "PC Magazine" (edita in molte lingue), attivo nel mondo dei PC e delle nuove tecnologie in genere, ha premiato Misfit Path come finalista "Best Smartwatch of CES 2018":
Similar to the Misfit Phase but designed with smaller wrists in mind, the Misfit Path is a beautiful smartwatch that looks more like an analog timepiece. It can track steps, calories burned, distance, and sleep, as well as receive your call, text, and app notifications from your phone. Swimmers will be happy to note it's safe for the pool and shower. It launches this spring, and at $150, the Path is not only stylish but also affordable.
Gear Diary - Best Wearable of CES 2018
Gear Diary, famoso blog che tratta di tutti i device "smart" e "connected", e quindi abbraccia anche il mondo degli smartphone, ha premiato (assieme ad altri prodotti) Misfit Path come finalista "Best of CES 2018 - Best Wearable":
Wearables have been all the rage for the past few years but, most of the time, they looked like… wearables. Misfit is working to change that with their new Path. Coming this spring in Stainless Steel, Rose Tone, Gold Tone, and Stainless Steel with Gold Tone Accent and starting at $149.99, the Misfit Path is Hybrid Smartwatch that looks and feels like a traditional watch.
As Misfit says, "Our newest advanced timepiece that seamlessly blends the sophisticated style of a classic analog watch with the powerful connectivity of a smartwatch.".
The Path tracks activity, lets you set goals, monitors sleep and offers vibration notifications. There’s more. It also lets you create smart alarms and movement reminders and control other connected smart devices. And if you want to go really crazy, you can use it to tell time. The Path doesn’t require charging, has a battery that lasts up to 6 months, and is swim-proof up to 50 meters.
