Frederique Constant have made an incredible name for themselves in affordable Swiss Luxury watches, so it comes as no surprise that they have created a stunning Horological Smartwatch. This timepiece is classic and simple in design, without the hefty price tag of your standard Swiss watches.
The watch itself comes in a 42mm case, available in rose gold plated steel, or stainless steel versions. It features a 42mm convex sapphire crystal glass and is water resistant to 50m. The case is a very comfortable 13.35mm height, housing a MMT-285 connected movement. The movement boasts a 25 month battery life and is created using fine materials and hand assembled by their expert craftsmen. Its simple and classic styling pairs typical Swiss luxury and connected functionality.
The bi-directional communication technology pairs with iPhone and Android apps. Unlike other smart watches it does not feature a digital screen, just diamond cut hands which display analogically. This means that the watch retains its classic Swiss beauty.
While the Horological Smartwatch does connect to your phone or tablet, it also functions entirely on its own using its own sensors. It tracks sleep patterns with a 95% accuracy rate, as well as providing activity alerts, and tracking your daily movements. Its low power solution means that this smart watch does not require recharging and the watch can rung for 25 months on the power of a regular battery cell.
If you still aren't convinced on the smart watch Frederique Constant have also created an E-Strap. This tiny device and turn any analog watch into a smartwatch. The ultra small buckle extension can barely be seen when fitted. Built slim and disguised by the leather strap it is the pinnacle in sophisticated functionality. The app is the same one used for the Horological Smartwatch, and tracks all the same information - activity, sleep, sleep cycle alarms, active alerts and dynamic coach. It also features a rechargeable battery, but using a similar low power processor as the watch, it should work seamlessly for 7 days before requiring charging.
