The new generation of smartwatches is here! The niche has been created and is here to stay. Choose your next smart pick from our curated options!
What is very interesting about the current smartwatch market is that watchmakers known for their traditional bent and classic watches have also ventured into smartwatches. Thanks to partnerships with technically sound companies, they have fused the worlds of classic watchmaking and smartwatches. We welcome the evolution!
EXOSPACE B55 by Breitling
Trust Breitling to come up with a smartwatch especially designed for pilots! That is true innovation in tandem with the roots of the brand! The aviation watch chronograph works in perfect synchronization with the smartphone. Two-way communication enables the two instruments to form a perfectly complementary pair. Users can use their phone to perform certain adjustments (time-setting, timezones, alarms, display and operating parameters, night mode). They can upload from the chronograph to the smartphone the results of various measurements (flight times, recorded times with split times, lap times, etc.) The chronograph also receives notifications. An authentic life companion indeed!
Horological Smartwatch for ladies by Frederique Constant
When smartwatches came into existence, Frederique Constant was one of the pioneer brands to fuse classic Swiss horology with smartwatch technology. The Ladies’ version of the Horological Smartwatch continues this mélange with a highly refined look. The detailed dial features guilloché decoration, mother of pearl on the outer dial and applied Roman numeral indexes. The 34mm case watch comes with a rubber strap. Of course, the much-appreciated connected functionalities make it an indispensable tool for modern women!
TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 by TAG Heuer
Here is a smartwatch that features a very original concept, new in the field of connected watches- the connected module is interchangeable with a Haute Horlogerie mechanical module: 3 hands or Chronograph Tourbillon COSC certified, offering a vast choice of materials, colours and combinations. It is water-resistant to 50 meters, features GPS, an NFC sensor for payments, a stunning high definition AMOLED screen and a wide selection of unlimited customizable TAG Heuer dials. Another highlight is the new TAG Heuer Companion app that improves the software experience and keeps the wearer connected with preferred people and information. The Swiss luxury watch has been engineered in collaboration with Intel. Here is a watch that officially connects Swiss tradition to the future!
Summit by Montblanc
The luxury smartwatch combines the design codes of traditional fine watchmaking, premium materials and state-of-the-art technology. Since it is made in partnership with Google, the life-enhancing functionalities of the smartwatch are all extremely relevant and useful. However, in the context of the history of the maison, the aesthetics are important here. Well, you can see the Montblanc touch in this watch. They have introduced a curved glass on the dial, which is a world first for a smartwatch. Since the looks are inspired by the Maison’s iconic 1858 Collection, the vintage element of the design takes centre stage. The result is striking: you are wearing a classical Swiss timepiece on the wrist, but one that gives you the functionality of the latest digital technology. The best of both worlds indeed!
While we agree that nothing compares to traditional watchmaking, we believe that the merry melange of traditional craftsmanship and digital technology in the new generation of smartwatches is an interesting development to watch out for!
