While smartwatches aren’t exactly a cheap accessory but, just like wristwatches, even they have a luxury tier to them which isn’t easy for everyone to afford. While most smartwatches cost around $200-300, these luxury smartwatch prices can go up to thousands of dollars simply because of the brand name they are associated with. As can be expected, the luxury android watch offerings in our collection of Best Luxury Smartwatches in 2017 are from big wristwatch companies like Breitling and Tag Heuer.
Best Luxury Smartwatches in 2017
At $930, the Montblanc Summit is way above the price of traditional Android smartwatches. The Summit uses Android Wear to provide smartphone notifications, tracking features as well as Bluetooth music controls and voice commands to remotely use your smartphone. This luxury smartwatch comes with the Montblanc signature look around the watch face and has a rubber strap to tighten the elegant steel cased luxury watch around your wrist. While it may not be ideal for rough usage, the Montblanc Summit is still splash-proof so your expensive watch will not be destroyed by a little bit of water hitting the watch face.
Although it lacks a touch screen, the way Vector Luna luxury watch is designed more than makes up for that shortcoming and deserves a spot on our Best Luxury Smartwatches in 2017 list. It has 3 buttons on the side which allow for easy navigation of the Vector Luna’s screens to access features like calendar and alarms. Vector Luna luxury watch also has built-in fitness trackers which displays numbers on your smartphone screen, whether it is iPhone or Android. The watch screen also displays notifications from your phone such as missed calls and messages. Thanks to its low power screen, the Vector Luna’s battery can last weeks on a full charge which is pretty great for the $330 price tag.
Huawei Watch Elegant and Jewel
As we have mentioned in our best Apple Watch alternatives, Huawei Watch are some of the best smartwatches in the market right now and Huawei Watch Elegant and Huawei Watch Jewel are no exceptions to that case. Surprisingly enough, despite being luxury smartwatches, these two Huawei smartwatches aren’t as expensive as other luxury android wear smartwatches even though they certainly look the part. The Huawei Watch Elegant model has a Clous De Paris pattern on the bezel and a gold casing while the Jewel model has bezels that are encrusted with Swarovski Zirconia. Basically, these two are more stylish looking versions of the Huawei Watch smartwatch at $300 price tag making them a luxury smartwatch to own.
The Alpina Horological is an analog luxury watch so while it may not have all the fancy features of typical smartwatches, it does the job of a fitness tracker quite efficiently while looking stylish like a typical Swiss watch. The $500 luxury fitness watch can connect to both iOS and Android devices with Bluetooth and thanks to its minimalistic features, the battery life is rated to last up to 2 years. Alpina Horological also has two dials, one that tell the time and the other that gives fitness information like activity tracking, sleep monitoring and sleep cycle alarms.
Bulgari Diagono Magnesium
Just the first look at this watch spells out luxury as the $3000 Bulgari Diagono Magnesium delivers a style statement like no other and might as well be considered a piece of jewelry rather than a luxury smartwatch. If you aren’t a fan of the style of most smartwatches these days, the Diagono Magnesium is a perfect choice as it has all the features of an amazing wristwatch including self-winding, a sapphire crystal and a ceramic bezel that gives it an expensive and premium look and feel. The Diagono Magnesium can also link up with tablets and smartphones using an app called Bulgari Vault and then uses the NFC chip on the watch to make payments at POS terminals, open doors and carry around electronic documents like word files.
Breitling Exospace B55
With a massive price tag of $7100, the Breitling Exospace B55 is one of the most expensive luxury smartwatches we have ever seen, however, for those who want to make a style statement, the price tag might not be a concern. As is the theme of Breitling watches, wings in their logo and tradition of making watches for aviators, the Exospace B55 ditches the usual smartwatch fitness features. In its place, this luxury Android watch has features like flight-time logs, world time zones, and alarms for those zones as well as countdown timers. To access these functions, you can either use the smartphone app or spin the watch crown. Of course, the Exospace B5 did not ditch the typical titanium casing of the watch that gives their products a premium feel.
Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45
At $1700 the Tag Heuer Connected isn’t the most expensive luxury smartwatch and that price point combined with the features it delivers is what makes it so fantastic and at the top of our Best Luxury Smartwatches in 2017 list. The general design of the watch is similar to most Tag Heuer offerings while the Android Software that makes it a smartwatch offers all the basic functionality like notifications for email, messages, and calls while also letting you use voice commands to control your smartphone. The biggest selling point of the Connected Modular 45 is, however, its modular nature. You can simply swap out the smartwatch module and insert the mechanical one to turn it into a traditional wristwatch. The mechanical module is however sold separately so if you want a watch that suits different styles, be prepared to pay a lot more than $1700. For Tag Heuer enthusiasts, there is also a diamond-studded bezel version available for around $7000.
So there you have it, our list of Best Luxury Smartwatches in 2017 which you can use as Luxury Android wear at parties and not feel bothered by the looks of the typical smartwatches. If however, you think these luxury smartwatches don’t have enough features for you and are out of your budget, check our list of Apple Watch alternative smartwatches that can be used with both iPhone and Android smartphones.
