A plethora of Android Wear smartwatches have been released or announced this year. I think that's good for the whole ecosystem this will help it to evolve and mature
2017 will be the year that fashion brands (and watch makers) take control of the Android Wear platform away from the smartphone manufacturers. While smartphone manufacturers have taken a step back, fashion brands are coming out in full force with new smartwatches.

Tag Heuer, Tommy Hilfiger, Hugo Boss, Guess, Fossil, Michael Kors, Casio, and many other watch/fashion brands all have new watches for the Android Wear platform. This is great as it will help propel the platform into mainstream popularity, but it's also a little concerning because many of these watches won't exactly be affordable. It's already hard enough to sell the average Joe on a smartwatch, and an average price range of between $300-$500 won't make it any easier.

It'll be interesting to see how smartwatches fare in the market with fashion brands and watch makers leading the charge.

After the release of Android Wear II there was an explosion of new smartwatches running the platform. I think this will make newcomers to think twice if they want to release a new wearable OS twice. 
Diesel announces On smartwatch.

At Baselworld 2017, Fossil Group announced a ton of new Android Wear smartwatches, and one of these new smartwatches is the Diesel On.

Diesel calls the On smartwatch "moto-inspired," which more likely than not refers to a motorcyle-styled design rather than the Motorola brand. As you can tell from the single press image provided by Diesel, the On is a round smartwatch with two buttons, and what appears to be a scrollable crown (not yet confirmed). Diesel says that the On has a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, and will offer seven dial options, as well as hundreds of customization options. The watch will also feature "unique dial effects," which include a cracked screen effect when a notification comes in (not sure why you'd want this but it's there) and "unique weather filters that change with the climate."

Unfortunately, Diesel's press release was incredibly low on information so the rest of the specifications are unknown at the moment. What we do know is, the On will start at a price of $325 and will be available "Holiday 2017."
