Fossil Group-owned watch brand Michele has debuted a hybrid smartwatch, the Michele Connected, designed expressly for women, combining analog time-keeping with smartphone connectivity.
The $495 watch features a gold-plated bezel and keeps time on a traditional watch face. But its connected insides enable fitness, step, and sleep tracking, as well as phone, email, and text notifications (through haptic vibrations).

Through the watch’s companion app, the device can also control your music and camera on a smartphone. The watch’s battery lasts four to six months, so there’s no daily charging required—a trend that’s thankfully catching on in the wearable industry.
The Michele Connected is currently available in the U.S. on the brand’s website; it comes in four colorways.
