Skagen is one of many traditional fashion brands that have tried their hand at combining classic wristwatch designs with modern wearable technology in recent years, but although some of the results are absolute head-turners
, they're not exactly competitively priced against affordable smartwatches from the likes of Samsung
, or even parent company Fossil
On the bright side, if you're only interested in style and affordability and don't mind a wearable device light on features, a bunch of hybrid Skagen smartwatch models are currently on sale at unbeatable prices. Namely, $59.99 apiece after a "regular" $95 discount and a special additional reduction of $40 you can apply to your cart before checkout using the limited-time "HYBRID40" coupon code.
All in all, you're looking at saving a whopping 70 percent or so off the $195 list price of some super-stylish hybrid smartwatches available in two men's designs and four women-friendly combinations of colors and materials. Men can pick up a Holst Titanium model with either a dark gray link bracelet or brown leather band, while the ladies are free to choose their favorite ultra-affordable Signatur T-Bar variant from silk mesh, rose gold-tone steel mesh, blue leather, and steel-mesh options.
The six "hybrid" designs share a pretty basic list of capabilities, connecting to Android handsets and iPhones to push discreet notifications to your wrist when you receive a text, email, or voice call. These wearables don't come with actual displays, though, so they can't show much, but they do track your activity and sleep in the background while also being able to control your music and help locate your misplaced phone. Oh, and you don't have to recharge them, as they run on a standard replaceable coin-cell battery.
