LAS VEGAS, NV – CES 2016 – January 6, 2016 – Martian Watches™, a California-based developer of award-winning fashion-forward analog smartwatches, today announced the unveiling of its new Martian mVip™ discreet notifications technology in the Kindred Vip™ Collection of women’s analog notification smartwatches and jewelry, designed to discreetly alert a woman to important VIP messages based on information that she chooses – while she leaves her smartphone in a nearby pocket or bag. These new watches and jewelry, along with Martian’s newest line of men’s Active mVoice™ Voice Command smartwatches, will be on display at the Martian booth #72742 at the Sands Expo Center during the International CES event this week in Las Vegas, NV.
Kindred vip – Woman’s Hybrid Smartwatch
Featuring Martian’s mVip discreet smart notification technologies, a modest round diameter of only 38mm and a stainless steel case in ion-plated rose gold, black and polished stainless steel, the Kindred vip is a true woman’s hybrid smartwatch.
Kindred vip uniquely has no discernible technology on its watch face and only a discreet LED alert light located on the side of the case at the 6 o’clock position, allowing users to create and customize their own "VIP Groups" defining discreet vibration patterns, in combination with seven unique consumer-assigned LED color notifications through the Martian Smart mVip companion app.
Kindred vip also features a built in accelerometer for step and sleep tracking, and its fitness data will be open for use in apps and ecosystems such as Google Fit, Up by Jawbone and others. Adding a leash feature and a ‘tap to recall’ function for notifications, the Kindred vip provides smart, discreet and stylish smartwatch functionality. The Kindred vip is water resistant, has a two year analog battery and lithium battery capacity of two-three weeks before being needed to be recharged via a pogo pin. Martian’s dual battery feature eliminates the need to charge your smartphone daily. Italian leather straps and stainless steel bracelets are interchangeable enabling users to easily customize the watches to complement their own unique lifestyle.
The Kindred vip smartwatch was produced in conjunction with Seiko Instrument Hong Kong (SIH) and uses both a Miyota 3-hand analog movement and Martian’s ‘Powered by Martian’ mVip discreet technology module to achieve the highest level of quality, functionality and performance in a true hybrid smartwatch.
Kindred vip’s modern design watch series includes two lifestyle collections:
Kindred vip CL Series: The perfect smart style day to evening companions with looks for business to casual dress to evening occasions.
Kindred vip SP Series: Sporty watches that are fun and colorful with crisp dials, vibrant contrasting indexes.

Martian will also showcase its new Kindred vip Smart Jewelry, an elegant smart wearable solution for fashion and fine jewelry. Featuring Martian’s mVip discreet smart notifications technologies, the Kindred vip smart bracelet offers one of the smallest and slimmest water-resistant wireless Bluetooth notification modules available today. A discreet LED alert light, is located on the top of the bracelet and an alert vibration motor hidden within, Kindred vip jewelry discreetly alerts the user to what she wants or needs to know, while enjoying moments with family and friends.
Like Martian’s Kindred vip smartwatches, its jewelry notification products allow consumers to create and customize their own "VIP Groups" defining discreet vibration patterns, in combination with seven unique consumer-assigned LED color notifications through the Martian Smart mVip companion app.
