While Fossil has released full Android Wear-based smartwatches in the past, with its Michael Kors brand, these new fashion-oriented hybrids hide their tech features. Each of these new brands comes with its own app for Android and iOS, and can offer users features like message notifications, fitness tracking and more. The batteries inside are designed to last up to six months.

Pocket-Lint reports that the new DieselOn Time watch comes in a stainless steel casing, and can be bought with five different color options for its strap. The Kate Spade watch will have three models to choose from (gold, rose gold and silver) and the Emporio Armani Connected watch will be sold in five different models.

Fossil says the Kate Spade watch will cost $250 when it goes on sale. The previously announced Emporio Armani Connected costs between $245 and $400, depending on the model. So far, no price has been revealed for the DieselOn Time watch.
