Diesel has introduced its premium Full Guard 2.5 smartwatch with features including heart rate monitoring, NFC payment capabilities, and GPS tracking. Wrapped in Diesel’s signature bold, moto-inspired design, the next generation smartwatches will make its wearer stand out from the crowd.
With an 1.3-inch screen, the Full Guard 2.5 is powered with Google’s Wear OS and is compatible with both Android and iOS.
Along with all the usual smartwatch functions, like notifications for incoming SMS messages, email, and calls, and music playback control, the timepiece also offers a range of new innovations such as:
Heart Rate Tracking. Using Google Fit or third-party apps, the watch automatically tracks your heart across various types of workouts.
NFS payment. The NFC-enabled Full Guard 2.5 allows you to buy stuffs via Google Pay or Alipay (available in China).
GPS Distance Tracking. GPS tracking eliminates the need for you to carry your phone while running or hiking. Leave the phone at home and go for a walk, hike, ride, or run and GPS will record the distance you traveled right on your smartwatch.
Assist on the Wrist. Give commands or ask questions directly to your smartwatch via Google Assistant.
Swimproof Technology. Swimproof technology allows you to shower and swim up to 3 ATM seamlessly through third-party apps.
However, the best feature is in its crown. Turn it to scroll through menus, rather than tapping your finger on the touchscreen. It’s much easier, faster, and more precise than finger scrolling.
The new line of watches come in 4 unique styles – a matte steel a matte steel case on a black leather strap, a gunmetal steel case on a brown leather strap, a matte black steel case on a black silicone strap and an all-over gunmetal stainless steel case on a three-link bracelet.
The customizable dials in the Full Guard 2.5 include the neon Flicker dial, which changes color automatically throughout the day, and the interactive heart rate dial, which creates a rippling water effect with the tap of a finger.
The Diesel Full Guard 2.5 smartwatch will be available in select stores and at Diesel.com beginning October 2018.
