Plenty of new fashion-centric hybrid watches will be landing in 2017. Hybrids, a.k.a. smart analog watches offer the same qualities as a traditional watch, i.e. physical, moving parts and attention to detail.

They lack many of the fancy features of their Apple Watch and Android Wear cousins, such the color touchscreen and compatibility with thousands apps, but this also means the battery lasts 150 times longer.. At a rough estimate.
