This is a sampling of the strap and case options available in the Movado Connect 2.0, the second iteration of the company’s smartwatch. Movado designed the watch in the style of its Museum dial, with the dot at 12 o’clock.
New York—Movado is launching the second iteration of Connect, the Google-powered, Museum dial-inspired smartwatch that came out two years ago.

In launching the Movado Connect 2.0, the watch company is casting a wider net. It’s introduced more feminine styles and added a smaller size.

When Movado Connect came out in 2017, all the watches were 42 mm and available in five versions labeled as “men’s styles.”

The 2.0 version includes a thinner, 40 mm option in addition to the 42 mm version, as well as styles with crystals set into the hands and the Museum dial’s signature dot at 12 o’clock.

It also has a heart rate sensor, a feature the first version did not.

Other features of the Connect 2.0 include:
Interchangeable straps (fabric for sport use or leather) and metal bracelets (traditional or mesh);
Customizable dials;
Programmable pushers;
A microphone;
GPS; and
Music control and storage.

Movado started taking pre-orders for the Connect 2.0 today. The watch will be available on and in Movado retailers worldwide in October.

Retail prices range from $495 to $750.
