I just hope they use AMOLED displays. I already know they are going to use the latest SD Wear 2100 SoC. I am also waiting for someone to use Google's project soli radar in a smart watch. That would be totally awesome to use your fingers in mid air just above the watch.

Wait what? Movado does not own Tommy Hilfiger. TH is a bigger company than Movado I'm pretty sure hugo boss is the same deal

Movado licenses the name from several designers strictly for designing and making watches. They also own licenses for Coach and Lacoste. The same goes for Fossil who actually makes the Michael Kors and Emporio Armani watches.

I hope they do a better job than their analog watches, these two brands use cheap internals in a 'well designed' exterior and only sell because of their brands. But the quality of their watches suck
