There’s no time quite like the New Year to wonder about what is in store for you. A new love? Promotion? Travel? Conquering your fitness goals? Whether it’s a case of achieving personal pursuits or professional success, explore this carefully selected edit of smartwatches that will celebrate the next chapter of your story.

Make your mark with Michael Kors

This is your year to get noticed. Whether you hope to assert your authority at the workplace or at social gatherings, it’s essential that you look and feel the part. One of the world's most famous and respected fashion designers, Michael Kors has mastered the fine art of style and substance, so you can too.

The Access Gen 6 Bradshaw smartwatch blends timeless sophistication with modern-day demands. Less of an accessory and more of an assistant, the 30m water-resistant design offers functions such as a light-up touchscreen display that features a heart rate monitor, SPO2 sensor to track your breathing and sleep readings, and a built-in fitness tracker.

The perfect companion for the high-flying woman, this model is ideal for staying up to date on social media, text and email alerts on-the-go, while allowing you to balance and schedule your business plans alongside your personal.

Presented in four colourways, each model is aesthetically striking as demonstrated by this rose gold-tone model studded with stones, and this two-tone silver and gold iteration complete with an engraved bezel that quite simply exudes eye-catching appeal.

Keep one step ahead with the Citizen CZ Smart

Who said you can’t have the best of both worlds? Citizen certainly didn’t. A great way to kickstart your 2022 into action, the CZ Smart Hybrid delivers iconic Citizen design with the functionality of a smartwatch. Offering a seamless transition from the office to the great outdoors, the model boasts an impressive 15-day battery that will keep up with the many people and pastures new you’ll encounter this year. Made to meet your needs, this powerful smartwatch works in sync with the Citizen Connected app, which lets you manage notifications and see your fitness stats with ease. You can also choose dials to suit your style and customise the display to include steps and heart rate to make sure you’re on track with your exercise targets. Reiterating Citizen’s commitment to strength and comfort, the smartwatch features a robust stainless steel bezel, along with an integrated silicone strap that not only emphasises the contemporary design but fits perfectly on your wrist .

Tissot’s technology for today

Bridging an illustrious past with an exciting present, Tissot’s new T-Touch Connect Solar is quite simply unforgettable – from the moment you first touch it. Continuing to follow in the ground-breaking footsteps of the T-Touch launched in 1999 that revolutionised the watch industry thanks to its integrated touchscreen crystal, T-Touch Connect Solar is updated for the new age, balancing contemporary design with coveted status.

While the T-Touch has always included time, navigation and meteorological information, this model brings forth the innovative connectivity of today. A tactile interface beneath the sapphire crystal allows you to touch certain areas on the glass to display functions such as activity tracking, app updates and notifications from your smartphone.

Empowered with an Sw-ALPS operating system and data storage from Switzerland, the T-Touch Connect Solar pays homage to the Swiss mastery of horology. Whether you prefer the modern appeal of a rubber strap or the classic refinement of a stainless steel bracelet, there is no questioning the superb craftsmanship of this smartwatch.
