Attention fashionistas! You want to know what watches you need to be absolutely up to date next season? Then we might have the answer for you. youDRESSED took a look around for you at the press day of the Fossil Group. Here are our top favorites for 2018.


DKNY is coming up with an innovative mix of materials this fall, and delights us with the trend colors purple and rose gold. We were especially impressed by the models “Greenpoint” and “Soho”. “Soho” receives a beautiful design refresh: Embossed leather straps that remind of the DKNY leather accessories, contrasting logo dials and a bracelet, which is highlighted by a rose gold-colored DKNY dial.


The Fossil Q Smartwatches are available as a hybrid as well as a touch screen smartwatch. Hybrid smartwatches are classic watch and smartwatch in one. It uses vibration to alert you of incoming messages and calls, keeps track of your steps and calories burned, and updates the time and date automatically, no matter what time zone you are in. The clock never has to be charged because it is battery operated. We liked the model “Q Jacqueline” particularly well. Its simple and timeless design makes her a perfect everyday companion.

“Q Venture” and “Q Explorist” are our favorites when it comes to touchscreen smartwatches. Through the display you can read your e-mails, text messages and calls with just a swipe or tap. In addition, you can choose individual apps and thus have all the information at a glance.


Even the non-smartwatches from FOSSIL can inspire with their unique design. The “Tailor” makes our fashion hearts beat faster, especially in turquoise and delicate rose – we are sure that we’re going to wear them even beyond autumn! The “Mini Carlie” made of stainless steel and rose gold is especially interesting for fans of small elegant watches.


Hard to believe, but the “KST2005 rose” is actually a touch screen smartwatch – and almost too good to be true! The watch is compatible with both iOS and Android and will be available with various bracelets. It shows you incoming messages, counts your steps and informs you about the weather. A special feature is the app “Choose your look”. You answer a few questions, e.g. the time of day and the color of your handbag and the dial automatically adapts to it – awesome!


The MARC JACOBS watch collection for fall 2018 presents itself as a true eye-catcher by mixing unexpected styles with classic looks. The new dials of the MARC JACOBS Classic have particularly enchanted us: The iconic daisies are cut out of the dial and reveal the inner works of a mechanical quartz movement. Another favorite of ours is the model “Henry”. It’s a bit more classic, but no less stunning.


SKAGEN’s smartwatches embody the perfect balance of form and function with modern, minimalist design and a technique that simplifies rather than complicates.

The Falster Smartwatch convinces us especially in rose gold. What’s so special about SKAGEN Smartwatches? The watch’s function-based dial provides quick access to frequently used functions. The simplicity not only makes a minimalits hearts beat faster, but also has the advantage of extending the battery life.

The women’s watches also feature the signature T-Bar Hybrid Smartwatch, a very feminine wearable. This season it comes with silk-mesh ribbons – a smooth, high-gloss version of the brand-typical Milanais bands. Another favorite on the hybrid watch front is the Hald Hybrid Mini – a stylish companion made of stainless steel.

With these stylish watches every fashionista rocks the next season! Thanks to youDRESSED you are now well prepared. We can not wait to wear those beautiful pieces and test the many practical features of the hybrid and smartwatches.
