Fashionable Wearable: HP Partners With Isaac Mizrahi For A Swarovski-Studded Smartwatch
Wearable lovers have a new device they can look forward to – the Swarovski-studded Isaac Mizrahi Smartwatch.
Aiming to redefine fashion, the luxe timepiece is a result of the collaboration between HP and fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi. The Isaac Mizrahi Smartwatch has been engineered by HP with design aesthetics and sensibilities being the handiwork of the notable designer.
"I knew I didn't want this to look like the average smartwatch. It's hard to integrate something so modern and mechanical-looking into a feminine piece, and I wanted the design to be a hidden treasure. The result is beautiful, refined and will be every woman's BEST accessory," says Mizrahi.
The designer also shared the Isaac Mizrahi Smartwatch picture on Twitter, introducing it to the world.

The Isaac Mizrahi Smartwatch features not only Swarovski crystals, but also multi-colored interchangeable leather bands that comes in five colors, including pastel options such as powder blue and pale pink, as well as light gray, white and black. It has a 42-millimeter round dial with big roman numerals. The stainless steel wearable will be available in two hues, which are silver and gold.
The smartwatch enables users to send texts, make calls, check their emails, set meeting notifications and get alerts from social media platforms. It is compatible with both Android and iOS devices. The device also has a pedometer so that you can count the number of steps you have totaled in a day. On top of all that, the smartwatch is also water-resistant and offers Bluetooth.
At first glance, the luxurious-looking smartwatch looks like a traditional timepiece as the integration of technology is pretty subtle. One will only espy the backlight screen flashing when they receive a notification.
The classic-looking smartwatch has been designed for the fashion conscious woman who is on the move. The wearable has been inspired by "menswear-meets-feminine look."
The analog movement of the Isaac Mizrahi Smartwatch is powered traditional watch battery, whereas the smart capabilities' battery life is nearly five days on a single charge (depending on usage).
The smartwatch from HP and Isaac Mizrahi is now available for preorder and is set to start shipping from next week. It will set consumers back by $249.99, which is similar to the price of Samsung's Gear S2 and cheaper than the Apple Watch that starts at $349. The interchangeable leather strap is priced at $39.99.
