Hands on: The Skagen Falster brings minimalistic Danish design to Android Wear

"In terms of hardware, the Kate Spade NY watch comes in a stainless steel case that's 42mm in diameter with a 1.19" fully round 390×390 resolution AMOLED display, surrounded by a rotating bezel with a distinctive scallop design embedded.

Pictures don't quite convey how this watch looks in real life - the case isn't as chunky as it appears.

The watch is now available to order in the USA for $295, though no worldwide announcements have been made about availability at this stage - but rest assured we'll be following up here. A spade logo is etched onto the knob on the right of the case. It's the narrow 16mm band and relatively small face that make it more suited for petite wrists. But instead of picking the colors of the dials, hands and numbers, the Kate Spade "Choose your look" app asks questions about your outfit, jewelry colors and the time of day to generate a face that will "perfectly complement" what you're wearing. The watch is compatible with Android 4.4 and up or iOS 9 and up. You can also long press the knob to summon Google Assistant and stream music over Bluetooth to your headphones. The watch will be able to run the assortment of apps and watchfaces available to any Android Wear watch through the included Google Play Store.

Fossil produces all Kate Spade watches under license for the American fashion brand.

The Falster will be available in four different colorways, two of which have mesh bracelets (the others have black or brown leather straps). They join a range of hybrid connected Kate Spade watches that launched in 2017. The company has just taken the wraps off its very first touchscreen smartwatch, the Skagen Falster. It is created to appeal to either men or women, but it will probably be a little large on smaller wrists.

Fossil Group has used the world's biggest consumer electronics exhibition CES to unveil touchscreen smartwatches from Kate Spade.
