The Movado Connect 2.0 comes in two sizes; 42mm and 44mm – both are compact and give consumers more options to choose their preferred choices based on size. The case is made of stainless steel, and this extends to the thin bezel. The 20mm straps are available in stainless steel and leather. The mesh designed straps are quite more expensive than the regular style.
AMOLED powers the display of the Connect 2.0, its touchscreen and features 3 physical buttons by the side. One is a rotating button, while the other two are push-in buttons and are programmable.
Following the steps of the Fossil Gen 5, the Connect 2 comes with 1GB RAM and 8GB ROM which is twice that of its predecessor. The 1GB RAM and 3100 chip beings better performance as seen on the Gen 5 and the Ticwatch Pro 4G even though powered by the older and outdated 2100 chip.
So you get to take more of your favorite files along with you on the Connect 2.0.
Rated 1ATM( waterproof up to 10meters), the Connect 2.0 is water-resistant, but I don’t recommend you wear it to the pool or ocean.
With 3100 chip on board, the Connect 2.0 has a longer battery life than its predecessor. It has been tested to last about 24 hours from a single charge on regular usage. Moreover, the 3100 chip brings battery saver modes that’ll see it last a couple of days with battery saver mode activated.
The Connect 2.0 comes with HRM, inbuilt GPS, accelerometer, gyroscope, and altimeter – all under the hood. This enables it’s to track your steps, distance, sleep, heart rate, and outdoor activities such as locations, routes you take and distance. This makes Connect 2.0 a comprehensive activity tracker.
Google Fit is your fitness companion on this device, you also get access to other interesting fitness apps from the Playstore.
The Movado Connect 2.0 is fully equipped to keep you connected to all that matters to you so you never get to miss important updates. It’s compatible with both Android and iOS devices, which upon successful pairing will alert you when there’s a new notification from both native and third-party apps on your phone. You can also control music, find my phone as well as other interesting features.
NFC is also onboard on the Movado Connect 2.0 which enables Google Pay – a non-contactless payment system that allow you make payment on the go directly from this watch, so you don’t need to always carry your wallet with you.
