Tech Chic: 6 Ways to Style Your Smartwatch

As more and more luxury watchmakers add themselves to the ranks of smartwatch producers, you may be wondering how to work smartwatches into your wardrobe.  Fortunately, modern smartwatches have as much style as they do cutting edge tech.  We are sharing 6 ways to style your smartwatch to make sure your connected device suits your outfit.

Choosing the Right Watch

The first step in styling any piece of wearable tech is to choose good-looking tech to begin with.  Today’s smartwatches are not the bulky, futuristic pieces they once were.  Many luxury watchmakers offer stylish smartwatches that look more like traditional wristwatches.  We have already released a guide to seven luxury brands jumping on the smartwatch bandwagon.

Emporio Armani’s dynamic style meets cutting-edge technology with a new collection of touchscreen smartwatches. This model features the brand’s most iconic design plus all the benefits of modern wearable technology.


Emporio Armani’s not-yet-released smartwatch has a touchscreen face.  This allows the wearer to customize the watch face to suit his outfit or his mood.  The Armani touchscreen smartwatch is currently available for preorder at a $395 price point.

Many smartwatches on the market offer similarly customizable dials.  If the watch faces offered by your watch’s brand do not suit your needs, why not create your own?  Download the Facer app to create your own smartphone watch face or select one created by another user.  More than 30,000 watch faces are currently available for download.

Choosing the Right Watch Band

The Michael Kors Access Sofie smartwatch combines modern glamour with next-generation technology.


Most smartwatches offer the option of customizing the watchband of your timepiece as well.  This Michael Kors smartwatch set ($450) comes complete with three interchangeable watchbands to match your look.

If you own an Android Wear watch, changing out the band has never been easier.  Google collaborated with b&nd to create MODE watchbands.  The snap-and-swap leather and silicone bands easily fit into place with the slide of a button.

For Everyday
