Martian Watches Is Making Big Smartwatch Moves in 2015

Judie and I have been covering Martian Watches since they first debuted a few years ago. While smartwatches are still trying to find the sweet spot of form and functionality Martian Watches has stuck with its winning formula that leverages the capabilities already present in today’s smartphones and allowing access to them from your wrist.


As the company explains,

Martian’s smartwatches allow you to stay connected with hands-free convenience via voice command control and customized vibration patterns that let you know what type of notification is coming in without even looking.

Now the company is looking to highlight what they are calling a “true crossroads of fashion and functionality.”


The new 2015 line of Martian Smartwatches include the new Martian Commander and Martian Monarch. These are just two of the new lines that will be highlighted at MWC this year. Judie met with the company at CES 2015 and was impressed with what she saw.

The video is just a glimpse of what Martian is up to.


These will have a more elegant and feminine design that is sized accordingly. Mixed in with these are other designs that offer a more rugged style and still others are all business.


At MWC Martian will also be showing off the new GUESS CONNECT smartwatch. This watch is “powered by Martian” and is the first GUESS/Martian watch to be publicly displayed. It was named a 2015 CES Innovation Award Honoree.

We’re hoping to get out hands on one so we can do a full review!!
