Movado Group – guardians of a number of fashion watch brands such as Tommy Hilfiger and Hugo Boss – has confirmed that it will be launching a family of Android Wear 2.0 watches.

There will be five styles of men’s watches unveiled by Movado at Baselworld 2017 in the Movado Connect portfolio. They will come with five customisable watch faces, with options for complications, to get unique and informative dial.

Android Wear 2.0 is finally here, and that means apps can now be directly installed on your watch and run without your phone.

You will longer need your phone nearby to use apps on your Android Wear device, because instead of requiring a tethered connection to your phone, it will communicate through Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or cellular network. In the older version of Android Wear, you could still use apps when out of range of your phone, as long as that phone was connected to a network — now your phone doesn’t need to be turned on at all.

Besides the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge duo, which definitely stole the show, Samsung also brought a slew of additional accessories and gadgets to show off at MWC 2016. In our extensive hands-on coverage, we made sure to give them all their fair share of attention.
