A Swarovski smartwatch powered by Android Wear is coming soon

Swarovski at CES 2017 during the Qualcomm press conference teased its own smartwatch, set to be unveiled at Baselworld 2017, the World Watch and Jewelry Show.

Swarovski is calling it the Swarovski Smart Watch for now, though it might get a more conventional name at the Baselworld 2017 convention. A lot of different slogans are being thrown around, with the company in its latest teaser saying, “It is time. To be smart. To be brilliant. To surprise and delight.”

There aren’t any details on the smartwatch yet. All we know right now is that it’ll be a smartwatch “For Her” and that Swarovski is partnering up with Qualcomm and Google to make it.

Swarovski has never actually produced its own smartwatch before. In the past, we’ve always seen Swarovski partner up with different companies for a Swarovski-themed smartwatch. For example, you have the Huawei Watch Jewel made with Swarovski Zirconia jewels.

This time is different, though. This will be a smartwatch directly from Swarovski itself. And, since Swarovski is partnering up with Qualcomm and Google, it’s obviously going to have a Qualcomm processor inside and Android Wear powering the software.

We’ll hear more details in March during Baselworld 2017.
