The greatest watch and jewellery fair in the world returned for another year. Unsurprising to anyone, electronic giants such as Sony, Asus and Samsung have all refreshed their line-ups with more gadgetries.

The most unusual of all is perhaps the Samsung Pocket Watch concept. Inspired by vintage pocket watches, Samsung stripped the strap off its successful Gear S3 and fused it with a traditional compass attached to the cover.

Fashion brand Diesel also announced a rugged, military-inspired 42mm smartwatch that either you will love it (because you’re a bloke) or hate it (because it’s too in your face). Worth mentioning is that Fossil Group, which is licensed to produce Diesel watches and that of other brands such as Emporio Armani and Michael Kors, will be introducing a total of 300 smart and hybrid watches this year.

The Diesel On runs on the latest Android Wear 2.0 and is equipped with all the customisation options that come with it. So if the green dial doesn’t appeal to you, keep swiping.

US watchmaker Movado unveiled the Movado Connect. We have all come to love the Moto 360’s minimalist and elegant aesthetics, but at the same time, largely let down by its flat-tyre watch face. The Movado Connect is built in a similar mould, minus the flat tyre. The understated elegance of Movado Connect firmly lies in its smooth round dial, bezel-less design and monochrome colour scheme.
