It’s about time, even if we do say so ourselves. Finally, GPS intelligence is coming to Kate Spade Smartwatches accompanied by a series of other cool features. Through a collaboration with the Fossil brand, the Scallop Smartwatch 2 by Kate Spade comes with some of the coolest features a smartwatch can have. There is a series of new tech features that bring the Kate Spade watches head-to-head with other modern watch brands.
Here is what you should expect to enjoy if you purchase the Scallop Smartwatch 2:
Built-in GPS that’s as accurate as the latest version.
Heart rate monitor to check the vitals.
Water resistance enabling wearers to shower wearing their watch or swim in shallow waters.
Access to Google Assistant, Google Pay and Google Fit.
The Google Assistant, Google Fit and Google Pay come as a given, because all Fossil smartwatches function on Google’s Wear OS. There are more specs that make the Scallop Smartwatch 2 a desirable watch.
First, check how to shop US and ship internationally before buying US brands from outside of North America. Otherwise, you will face challenges that will increase your total order price or make it impossible to get your watch once purchased.
Shop for your Scallop in the US and Get it Delivered to your Doorstep
Before you fall in love with the Kate Spade Scallop Smartwatch 2, you need to get logistics out of the way. One sure way of ensuring that you get the best deal for your Kate Spade shipping after buying is to register an account with an international parcel forwarder.
Here’s a scenario, you create an account to shop at Kate Spade online, but, you’re not in the US or Canada. To make this practical, you live in a country like Belarus and the webstore you buy your Scallop Smartwatch 2 from doesn’t offer international shipping. Without further information, you are bound to give up and not complete the purchase. With some information, you might look for a company that provides drop shipping to help you with the purchase. But chances are, this will make your purchase more expensive and difficult to complete.
Solve this dilemma by signing up for an account on a re-shipping service website. With an international package forwarder, you get a series of services, including:
Parcel consolidation, in case you would like for your Kate Spade watch to get repackaged and combined with your purchases from other online stores before being taken to an international carrier for shipping to your address.
Help with customs in case you need assistance in declaring or paying tax for your imported Scallop Smartwatch 2.
Local assistance from your selected forwarder if you ask them to go to the physical shop on your behalf.
A payment system that accepts PayPal to pay for everything including your Kate Spade Scallop Smartwatch 2, handling fees and shipping fees. One such parcel forwarding provider is Parcl.com and signing up for an account is free. There are no account maintenance or monthly fees. Only pay as and when you use their services.
The Scallop Smartwatch 2 in Detail
Now that you know how to complete the online shopping process by yourself, let’s take a look at the Scallop Smartwatch 2 in detail.
The Smartwatch is a result of a collaboration between the Fossil brand and Kate Spade. The water-resistant watch has more impressive features to it. Each unit comes with a 300mAh battery that lasts up to two days on a single charge. The watch has a magnetic charger, built-in Bluetooth and is compatible with Android version 4.4+ and iOS 9.3+.
The Scallop 2 fits alongside the already existing impressive list of other Kate Spade watches for women. The stylistic aspect of the watch is what qualifies it as one of the best international purchases. The Scallop Smartwatch 2 has the classic Kate Spade elements in a mixture of pastels and scallops all over the watch face and into the bands.
After getting in touch with a company that provides forwarding and will handle international shipping from the US to your country on your behalf, you can purchase your Kate Spade fabulosity. The forwarder will use the best available carrier (according to your country) to send your watch in a secure manner.
If you’re buying it for the health benefit, then you’ll be happy to learn how easily accessible it is to check your heart rate: simply tap on a spade on screen. Other features are also easy to activate or access on this smartwatch.
Availability and Cost
The moment of truth ladies and gentlemen. How far are you willing to dig into your pocket for the Kate Spade scallop and pastel glamorised smartwatch? The Scallop Smartwatch 2 comes in two versions and each accommodates your budget. There is the Silicone version which retails for US$295 and then there is the metal band version going for US$335.
In case you’re wondering why you should invest in paying for package forwarding from the US for a silicone version, the reason is that it's just as strong and beautiful as the metal one, but even better because the silicone bands are interchangeable.
Not to worry though, Kate Spade and the Fossil brand are more interested in developing the different watch faces to give buyers more variations to select.
The most interesting part, with this smartwatch, you can use a built-in app to answer a couple of questions about your outfit and get the right dial in return. Dressing up has never been this interesting!
Other Big Developments under Fossil
The Fossil x Kate Spade collaboration is one for the books. But it’s not the only project that the Fossil Group has under their wings. The company is also releasing the Michael Kors Sophie touchscreen Smartwatch. This version comes with a blinged-out top bezel, a heart rate monitor, GPS and NFC.
Additionally, Fossil has also turned two of their traditional watches, the Neutra and Carlie into hybrid versions. If you don’t mind that these come thick, then get yourself the Carlie or Neutra hybrid. After all, one of them has the mother of pearl. The chic nature of Fossil watches makes them all the more desirable. But eventually, it’s what you need in a watch that will help you make up your mind on where to spend your money.
