Disillusioned by all the large, masculine smartwatches on the market? Fret not, for Danish accessories brand Skagen has launched a device just for you. The new Skagen Signatur T-Bar Hybrid Smartwatch is a slenderer take on the smartwatch, with a 36mm case and a 16mm strap. Those dimensions make the Signatur T-Bar one of the bonniest and chicest smartwatches on the market today.
Skagen is marketing the Signatur T-Bar Hybrid Smartwatch as a device for ladies, and it’s certainly feminine enough to warrant that. It is available in four different finishes: Rose gold, stainless steel, grey and gold. These models come on either a leather or mesh strap. Here’s what you need to know about it:
The Skagen Signatur T-Bar Hybrid Smartwatch
Being a hybrid smartwatch, the Signatur T-Bar has an analogue dial and is powered by a user replaceable coin-cell battery. The battery life is rated for over four months, and once connected to a smartphone, the Signatur T-Bar kicks into action and automatically adjusts to the correct time by itself, thus ensuring a slick, hassle-free setup process.
Once setup, the Signatur T-Bar Hybrid Smartwatch will track your daily activity, including the number of steps you take and the distance you travel. It will then calculate this data to provide a calorie burn readout, which you can access through the smartphone app.
The Signatur T-Bar Hybrid Smartwatch can be setup to alert you when you receive a smartphone notification. Skagen calls these ‘discreet notifications’, which basically means that the watch vibrates to give you a notification. Notification alerts can be setup for phone calls, text messages and emails, so that you never miss a thing. Compatible with iPhone and Android devices, the Signatur T-Bar Hybrid Smartwatch takes just a few minutes to setup and offers the luxury of never having to charge it, unlike some of the more bonified smartwatches on the market. If this appeals to you, and you have been after a sleek, discreet smartwatch, the Skagen Signatur T-Bar Hybrid Smartwatch is for you.
Pricing and availability
The Skagen Signatur T-Bar Hybrid Smartwatch is priced from $195.00, and is available through the Skagen website directly. Skagen watches are also available through resellers, and devices sometimes pop-up on Amazon.
