Kate Spade Scallop Features
Display and Design
The design of the Kate Spade scallop makes a whole lot of sense, it’s a beautifully designed smartwatch with an outstanding aesthetics housed in a feminine case that makes it perfect fit for women. It couldn’t be any better especially when it’s designed by a company that understands and breathes female fashion. The appearance and sizes indicates a perfect choice for women.
The Kate Spade scallop is only 9mm thick which makes it an ideal choice for women, the stainless steel case size of 42mm also indicates a smartwatch perfect for women and the 16 mm leather straps also indicates it’s a great choice for women. In addition, the bezel has this scallop design on it which presumably is where the scallop name came from. Its touchscreen and has a rotating digital crown type of button almost similar to the Apple watch series 4 digital crown although more superior.
The Kate Spade Scallop comes in three variants; rose-gold tone with black leather straps, rose-gold with rose-gold strap and rose-gold tone with rose-gold tone stainless steel bracelet. The Scallop also has Corning Gorilla glass on the screen for protection against scratch.
Battery Life is Great
The Kate Spade Scallop doesn’t have the most impressive battery life, but it has a moderate battery life that will last up to a day on regular usage which I think is great. You will have to charge it at least once a day.
This is also the case with most smartwatches of which majority of them are powered by Snapdragon 2100 which is considered outdated.
The Kate Spade Scallop is water resistant, its rated IP67 which means it water resistant up to 1 meter for 30 minutes under water. So, it will survive under rainfall, and even in the shower, but don’t wear it to the pool as it might damage the watch.
In terms of activity tracking, the Kate Spade Scallop is not the best, it lacks a heart rate monitor (HRM) which means you won’t be able to track your heart rate with this device. It also lacks inbuilt GPS which is also unfortunate as tracking your location becomes quite inconvenient. You will have to rely on your phone and that’s quiet uncomfortable in certain conditions.
However, the Kate Spade Scallop comes with an accelerometer which lets you track your sleep, calories, steps and distance covered via Google Fit. These are very important activity tracking features but fitness enthusiasts will definitely want more.

The Kate Spade Scallop is one of the best smartwatch when it comes to keeping you updated with the latest that matters to you. The Scallop has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi which lets you to connect to compatible devices. Once connected you will receive notifications form both native and third-party applications as they arrive on your phone.
