The Breitling B55 Connected is a smartwatch, developed by Swiss watchmaker Breitling, that brings together smartwatch technology with classic watch fashion sensibilities.
Rather than making the watch a device that handles data via a connection with a phone, the Breitling B55 Connected uses the phone to operate the watch. A phone app can be used to easily control the watch and set things such as alarms, time zones, display, night mode and so on. In essence, this device is a connected chronograph that also happens to have both analog and digital displays.
With many people believing that mobile phones are slowly killing off wristwatches, the Breitling B55 Connected takes a contrarian stand. The underlying philosophy here appears to be to use the phone to serve the watch rather than vice versa.
