The Kenneth Cole Connect‘s alert features include incoming and missed calls, new email and text message notification, alarms and calendar invite alerts, and “Don’t Leave Me” alerts, which notifies you when you are too far away from a Bluetooth Connection. Other features of the Kenneth Cole Connect includes the capability to take Selfies that are longer than just your arm, and the power to control the music on your Smartphone from your watch. Accompanying the smart watch is the Kenneth Cole Connect app, compatible with both iOS 8+, and Android TO 4.4+, and available for free download from both iTunes and the Google Play store.

“As a designer, I always try to give customers what they want but in a way that they don’t necessarily expect it,” states designer Kenneth Cole. “Wearable technology is one of the fastest growing fashion categories today and I am excited to be on the forefront of embracing this platform.”

What do you think of the designer’s foray into the smart watch world? Will you be wearing a fashion designer made smart watch?
