    Post Wearable Wednesdays: A SKAGEN Souvenir

    My girlfriend brought home this little souvenir from our recent trip to Copenhagen, a SKAGEN Mini Hald Hybrid in rose gold. I'd love to crack open the box to give you a better look, but it's not mine so I'm not allowed.

    We bought it at the SKAGEN Store in Copenhagen, a little boutique on a busy shopping street. Except for the branding it could easily be mistaken for a Fossil store in your local mall—which only makes sense, as SKAGEN is owned by Fossil Group. Pro tip: you don't actually pronounce SKAGEN skah-ghen, but rather, skay-en. The brand gets its name from the northernmost town in Denmark. The more you know...

    Anyway, what immediately struck me as unusual about this particular wearable was how thick it is. It's powered by a regular watch battery (CR2025) so it must have a fairly substantial vibration motor on board. The watch connects to your Apple or Android device with the same app I used for the SKAGEN Falster. That Wear OS device, by the way, had its own dedicated display, front and centre in the shop. I asked the person helping us how it was selling; he confided with me that hybrids were more popular with their customers.

    And yet the new hybrid watch owner in our house hasn't even broken the seal on the box. Apparently she is saving it for a special occasion; in the meantime her Pebble Time Round gets the job done. That's my girl!

    My HoFo feedback... is that still a thing?

    Men's hybrid watches have been discounted in many US stores (B$M and online) to 50-60USD.
    You can spoil yourself as well

    Oh...and Skagen is an American company, founded by 2 Danish-born guys....
