Watch brand Gc will use the forthcoming BaselWorld exhibition to debut its first ever smartwatch, the Gc Connect.
Available in both male and female models, the watch is powered by Android Wear, Google’s latest update to its smartwatch platform.
The technology incorporated into the Gc Connect enables the user to use a wide range of new touch screen functions thanks to the system-on-a-chip (SoC) interactive touch screen experience.
These functions include everything from advanced fitness tracking, downloading the favourite apps directly from the on-watch Google Play™ Store, to improved messaging with updated input methods (handwriting recognition, keyboard, Smart Reply) powered by Google’s machine learning technology.

In addition, users can reply to a message, set a reminder, or ask for directions by holding the power button or saying “Ok Google”.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, which is built into the watch, has been especially designed to support new and enhanced wearable experiences for consumers and includes an always-on connectivity with low power usage for a long battery life.
Both the men’s and the women’s models are based on Gc’s existing Structura watch design with four models available for men and three for women.
