The body is fairly thin, has a decent amount of weight to it, letting you know that it isn’t just cheap plastic, and generally looks like a real watch, not a piece of technology. Everyone likes watches as a fashion item, so the fact that this watch looks first like a classic watch, then doubles as a smart device.

Whether you choose gold, black, or silver, the case is precision-crafted from aircraft-grade stainless steel. It features exclusive bands in stainless steel and genuine Horween double-wrapped leather design. A new lug design and quick-release bands make it easy to swap your everyday band for something new.
Wrists come in different sizes, so watches should too. Men can choose from two case sizes—a 46mm design or 42mm for a sleeker look. The women’s 42mm case is specifically designed for smaller wrists.
