BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Martian Watches™, a California-based developer of fashionable smartwatches, today announced the European debut of 10 new designs to its award-winning smartwatch portfolio including highlighted flagship watches: Martian Commander and Martian Monarch. Each design delivers its own distinct styling with identical smart functionality to keep wearers current with today’s mobile lifestyles. These new watches will be on display at the Martian Watches stand at Hall Congress Square, Stand CS124 during the Mobile World Congress 2015 event this week in Barcelona, Spain.
While sporting an always-on classic analog timepiece design, these new designs do not sacrifice smartwatch functionality. All provide award-winning technology which enables voice commands from the watch, along with notifications from 1000s of popular apps and programs. Martian Watches are water resistant and compatible with both iOS and Android operating systems.
In each Martian Voice Command smartwatch, the onboard directional speaker and noise-canceling microphone allow wearers to access their smartphone’s voice command functions and receive spoken responses – a feature not found on most smartwatches. The watches allow users to place calls, send voice-to-text SMS and email messages, listen and respond to messages, set calendar notifications, request music selections, search the web, set reminders and all the other voice commands their phones allow. Meanwhile, incoming notifications take on a new sense of meaning with industry-first custom vibration patterns for eyes-free awareness and “quick recall” of the last alert with a simple tap of the watch glass. Other benefits include a Phone Leash feature so you don’t leave your phone behind, a Remote Camera Shutter Mode to enable more selfie action, Music Control (on iOS), Find Phone, Notification History, 2nd Time Zone, Silent Alarms and more.
New, not to be missed, styles include:
- Martian Commander: Available in rugged resin or sleek stainless steel, this is a classic masculine design with round case, black face with raised white bezel numbers and tic marks and a red sweeping second hand that make it both functional and distinguishing. Designed for active individuals who want a stately analog timepiece with high-tech voice command smartwatch performance.
- Martian Monarch: This full-featured voice command smartwatch boasts notice-me, feminine styling. A glamorous smartwatch, the crystal-bordered bezel, polished stainless steel or resin, leather band, and graceful Roman numeral face highlight this dressy watch.
“Martian believes strongly in our mission to make the classic watch smart by taking a fashion-first approach and incorporating our award-winning smart technology with dozens of unique and highly useful features,” said Jeffrey Hsieh, CEO of Martian Watches. “We feel this message will resonate well with a European audience that enjoys some of the most prominent and beautiful watch makers in the world.”
