Fashionistas hankering for some techno-bling to wear with their swank Armani suit or skirt, need to hanker no longer.

The swish Italian brand has released three smartwatches in Australia and depending on your taste they may be as smart as they are stylish.

In the wide orbit of smartwatch land, the new Armani timepieces are truly novel. Yes, they have a touchscreen feature like all their rivals, but you wouldn’t be aware of it.

These luxury models have a watch face that works as a touchscreen when it’s required. The rest of the time they automatically revert to one of eight classic Armani watch faces.

Choosing one of these watch faces is as easy as swiping your Armani timepiece left or right. Faces can be customised and saved as favourites.

The three new watches’ engine is the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 smartwatch processor and they're running on Google’s Android Wear 2.0 operating system.

A combination more than adequate to display fitness functions such as distance walked/run and the number of calories you’ve obliterated while you pounded the pavement.

But you can also access Google assistant to inform you about the weather or where you can rest your head for the night if you’re travelling away from home.

And you’ll be doing it in style.

The new Armani smartwatches are available in Gold ($549), Silver ($649) and Black ($649)
