So it turns out that there's this big watch convention thing going on in Switzerland (hint: we didn't go), where a lot of smartwatches have debuted. Baselworld 2017 has been a hub of timepiece activity, with us seeing plenty of new entrants into the Android Wear fold. One of these is Hugo Boss with the Touch. At first glance, the Touch looks pretty traditional. Most of the new Wear devices announced lately have been too sporty for my taste, but I like the look of this ...

The minimalist American watchmaker Movado announced a few weeks ago it was going to release an Android Wear watch, but it neglected to offer up any pictures of the device. Now it's officially unveiled. The Movado Connect looks exactly how you'd expect a smartwatch from Movado to look. The announcement was made at Baseworld 2017, but there aren't a lot of details right now. It has an edge-to-edge crystal face with an always-on display (that could mean AMOLED).

Both the Grayson and Sofie are the next step in the luxury brand's attempts at blending design, personal style, and technology. The Grayson looks more like a traditional men's watch and is marketed as such. According to Michael Kors, it is meant to "complement the 24/7 lifestyle of the modern man." Honestly, I can't say that I'd want to wear this watch to the gym ...

Diesel announces the On, its first Android Wear smartwatch, will start at $325

The Fossil Group has just announced a ton of new Android Wear-based smartwatches at the Baselworld 2017 watch show, and the Diesel On is one of them. Although Diesel has made hybrid watches before, the On is Diesel's first Android Wear device. It's a pretty unique-looking one, too. Unfortunately, the press release is incredibly hollow, with little information, only one image, and nonsensical phrases. It's so bad that it's actually kinda hilarious. Read MoreDiesel announces the On, its first Android Wear smartwatch, will start at $325 ...
