With the Apple Watch launching later this month, other luxury brands are getting in the game to offer something more than just a digital screen you can put on your wrist. Gucci and Will.i.am recently announced at Baselworld that they are forming a partnership to create a smart band that will be an entirely standalone product from the current smart watches on the market. The smart band will be able to make calls, both send and receive texts, check email, display maps, hold music and maintain a calendar, on top of other features such as fitness tracking and a “sophisticated personal assistant” that will be operated via voice command.
