Swiss synchronisation: The new Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch
Hello, world — there's a new Smartwatch on the market and it's a sleek classic that belies a wealth of intuitive capabilities. Exemplary of Frederique Constant's elegantly crafted timepieces that pack the most cutting-edge technology within their timeless forms, the new Horological Smartwatch is the upgraded protégé of its forerunner.
Debuting at Baselworld 2016, the Swiss watchmaker proudly introduces the 42mm rose gold-steel model, bearing a handcrafted charismatic navy dial marked with striking roman indexes. Built upon the MotionX technology that powered the previous editions of Smartwatches, the new unit runs on an improved MotionX-365 with the MMT-285 calibre and a battery life of two and a half years.
A smaller dial located at the six o'clock mark precisely monitors your activity and sleep percentages, and the data is then synced to your smartphone via a specially designed app to translate the information into a comprehensive chart. The algorithm behind this innovation is a compilation of the Swiss maison's extensive R&D into user profiles and functionalities; hence the 'smart' aspect of the watch as it deftly processes patterns and information. And if you ever lose your phone (heaven forbid), MotionX-365 is backed up by Cloud to retrieve your data without a hitch.
Besides its ability to track your body clock, the Horological Smartwatch boasts a brand new worldtimer utility that keeps busy jetsetters connected with several time zones at once. It logs your home time and local time, as well as syncing seamlessly with your phone to ensure a complete adjustment. To swap your time display, three simple clicks on the pusher will reveal the time in a different part of the world on the analogue dial. For the regular travellers, this essential function expedites your transits, keeping you on time and in time regardless of how many countries you fly across.
The perfect integration of progressive technology with traditional watchmaking, the new Horological Smartwatch pushes the boundaries of innovation alongside artisanal haute horlogerie craft. Stylish and savvy, it asserts a longevity that will go as far as you do.
The Horological Smartwatch is available at official Frederique Constant retail distributers.
