Design

Kate Spade Grand Metro smartwatch has a clean hybrid build. It basically holds a classic design with inclusion of smart features.

Just like other Kate Spade watch, it has their traditional analog clock face and the stainless-steel built along with leather wrist strap. No one can segregate whether it is a smartwatch or a classic watch on the first impression.

The watch model is solely purposed for women. To sub-serve the fashion they keep, it came out in four different colors and models. Black and Rose Gold, Grey and Silver, Vachetta and Gold, and Two Tone Silver.
