SKAGEN launches its first ever touchscreen smartwatch

Wearable brand Skagen has launched its first ever touchscreen smartwatch named Falster. The smartwatch powered by Android Wear 2.0 is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100. The smartwatch will be available in two variants- SKT5000 and SKT5001.


The Falster features a full-round touchscreen that allows for expanded capabilities while maintaining an understated design and intuitive, easy-to-navigate interface. Falster offers an edited take on useful functionality and simpler, cleaner interfaces. The dials seek to be simple and visually balanced, showing information in an edited and informative way, without adding unnecessary clutter.

Fredrik Thrane, Creative Director of Skagen, said, "One of our goals with Skagen’s smartwatches is to make technology feel more familiar and approachable. We do this by simplifying and editing our products, but also by humanizing the experience of using them: the dial layouts and the movements are designed for calm and pleasant interaction. We’ve even added personal touches like our ‘mascot’ Dan, who serves as a friendly guide, celebrates your personal goals, and helps bring a daily smile to your face."

The smartwatch is compatible with iOS 9.0+/ Phone 5+ and Android Devices  4.4+. Being connected to Bluetooth technology, the smartwatch is able to control music through third-party apps. The touchscreen smartwatch also lets users effortlessly view incoming calls, texts, and emails from your wrist and it comes with IP67 water resistance.

The smartwatch will be available at a starting price of Rs 19,995 and goes up to Rs 21, 995.
