Launched at this year's Baselworld is the Horological Smartwatch from Frédérique Constant and Alpina, which presents an unusual take on connectivity. There are many companies producing their own versions of touchscreen watches, but understandably, many consumers don't see why they should downgrade to a smaller mobile screen that they can wear. Rather than boasting a sleek touchscreen face that's digital, this Horological Smartwatch retains the look of a classic timepiece, with all of the connectivity to an app.
Despite the traditional look of the Horological Smartwatch, the iOS and Android connectivity comes from hidden MotionX technology that provides real-time alerts, coaching, sleep cycle monitoring and alarms. With a battery that lasts over two years, there's no need to worry about recharging to stay constantly connected.
