It's sleek and small and elegant. It's not explicitly designed for women, but its unisex appeal makes it a strong contender regardless. A reminder, there is a Skagen Falster 2 incoming if you want more a feature-packed model. Sure, it's not the small 39mm version that Tag Heuer promised, but the latest Tag Heuer Connected Modular is still good enough and small enough for women's wrists.
It helps that Tag Heuer went ahead and fixed some of the problems with its larger brethren. It now sports a gorgeous new 1. And of course, you get all the customisation you'd want from a Connected Modular. Tag Heuer Connected Modular 41 review. The LG Watch Style isn't first on our list, but it keeps things simple, in both design and features. This is essentially alerts and activity tracking wristwear but what it has going for it is that it's considerably smaller than its sibling, the Watch Sport and most other smartwatches.
It's very light - lighter than it looks - and fairly slim and compact too at Packing Wear OS with nifty new watch faces but sadly no NFC for contactless payments - to keep the thickness trim, it's a inoffensive choice if not the most exciting. Plus that price is mid-range, so if you want lots of features and sensors, you're out of luck with this one.
If you want a smartwatch that looks like a watch and adds a bit of connectivity to your wrist, you're all set. Choose from three muted models of rose gold, titanium and silver finishes. LG Watch Style review. Slightly more classic looking and masculine than the Michael Kors option - the clue's in the name - are these two Hugo Boss Smart Classic hybrid smartwatches. There's a small digital display, fitness tracking and smartphone alert handling onboard.
In stainless steel or rose gold finishes, there's croc leather straps and a dedicated companion Hugo Boss Smart Watch app. Hugo Boss Smart Classic review. Misfit Phase was the company's first dip into the hybrid scene, but it's followed up with the similar-but-not-completely-identical Misfit Path. While the Path shares the same DNA as the Phase, there are a few notable differences, including the round markers around the face and the 36mm size - for comparison, the Phase is 41mm.
The Path will alert you to notifications, but unlike the Phase it doesn't use the colour wheel to signify what they're for. Instead, it just uses hand movements and vibrations to give you alerts, which can be customized in the app settings. One of the side buttons can also be dedicated to a special smart feature of your choosing, like remotely controlling your phone's camera. The watch is waterproof to 50 meters too, with a six-month battery life to boot.
As rightly pointed out by Wareable readers, the now pretty old Gear S2, and particularly the Classic, is still a good option for women. It's smaller, lighter and more stylish than the Gear S3 and still has Tizen's beginner-friendly operating system and intuitive rotating bezel. Also available in rose gold and platinum styles pictured. It's still not the best choice for apps, though the big names are pretty much all there.
But if you're not convinced by Wear OS, you might find you can pick up a bargain with this one especially if you don't need a standalone watch - it has even been treated to some S3 features via updates. More importantly, it's one of the only Samsung smartwatches the women of Wareable would actually wear outside the house. Samsung Gear S2 review. That's all i really need to jump in eagerly to this tech.
Can't wear those clunky watches that are as big as my wrist: I think for women -- fashion is a major factor. Practicality and functionality are certainly key -- but not at the sacrifice of fashion. Know too many women who hate the look of all smartwatches. Keep the interface simple - limit the text keep the colors and watchfaces.
For many it's enough to have a notifications and fit tracking. I have one and it's plenty big enough for what you need to interact with I guess the benefit is that smaller wrists generally mean smaller fingers!! Is it possible for all these big brands to make standalone smarwatches equipped with a SIM card slot?
What is the technical difficulty or commercial incovenience in doing this? For example, a watch with a slightly bigger face, but a simple band can make a great accessory addition. Another thing to consider is the material of the watch. Your watch should be some sort of metal silver, gold, platinum , but the metal color should go with the other metal pieces in your outfit.
For example, if your shoes and purse have gold detailing, avoid wearing a silver colored watch. A colorful or unique purse can act as a statement piece to a calmer, more conservative outfit. Conversely, a stylish and simple bag can elevate a more casual outfit. Your purse does not have to match your outfit, but if you already have a color piece in your ensemble top, blazer, shoes, etc. Any purse that you use should be sleek and fashionable, no matter which way your outfit is leaning toward.
For example, if you purse if smaller, it could be a bit more playful and flashy when paired with a casual outfit. Consider wearing a scarf. A scarf can serve as a simple accessory that can add a little variety to your outfit.
A scarf can always add a bit of color to your outfit, while sometimes lending a more fashionable feel, depending on the print and fabric. If your outfit consists of mainly dark colors, consider pairing it with a graphic scarf.
Wear your favorite print or color. For business suits, the classic attire can be rather boring. Consider switching up your business look by wearing a blouse that is your favorite print of color. Adding in this variety can keep your outfit looking appropriate and smart, while also letting your personal fashion sense shine through. Soften your look with a sweater. Blazers are a great way to embellish a smart casual outfit, but if you want to go for a softer look, consider wearing a colorful cardigan or wrap sweater.
If you are always chilly, a turtleneck is also a viable option for a smart casual sweater look. Renovate your work basics. In many business settings, pantsuits are a norm.
Switch up the norm by updating your normal pantsuits for ones with slimmer silhouettes. Slimmer silhouettes can flatter your figure while staying modest, and you can mix and match your pantsuit combinations. Always wear at least one statement piece. Dressing stylish everyday might be exhausting, but when in doubt and running low on work appropriate outfits always wear at least one statement piece.
Your statement piece could be colorful, or printed, or embellished. Many department stores offer a variety of clothing options that can create smart casual outfits. Fashion stores can also have pieces that can create a smart casual outfit, but you will have to use your best judgement. Store employee can always help you shop for specific styles.
