While wearable technology is becoming more capable on a daily basis, luxury smartwatch concepts are also emerging to round out form and function. Announced at this year's Baselworld, there will be a collaboration between will.i.am and Gucci Timepieces for a standalone smartband, meaning that this wrist piece could operate independently of any other mobile devices.

What makes this band so intelligent is its ability to handle phone calls, text messages, emails, store music, organize calendar dates, display maps, track fitness and even serve as a personal assistant through voice command. Combining a luxury brand name and a figure from the realm of pop culture and tech, this Gucci and i.am+ smartband is set to be the perfect embodiment of practical style.
