Frederique Constant gets the world’s first ‘Swiss smartwatch’ over to India

Love high-end Swiss watches? Love smartwatches? How about a Swiss smartwatch, then?

Smartwatches might be the newest tech on the block but, let’s face it, they’re kinda lacking on the aesthetics front. But what if someone made a smartwatch that looked good? Something like a Swiss smartwatch?

Yes, yes, we know you’re tired of us complaining about how smartwatches look. But hey, we take our style seriously. A watch’s gotta look the part, you know. It’s not a mere gadget, it’s a vital accessory that speaks about your sense of fashion. But guess what, you won’t hear us complaining any longer, thanks to the Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch.

Tagged as the ‘first Swiss smartwatch’ by its makers, the Horological Smartwatch does away with LCD displays completely, instead using analog ‘smart counters’ to show your activity and sleep tracking info. And according to Frederique Constant, you’re also getting some of the most accurate activity and sleep tracking possible – thanks to the proprietary MotionX sensors used. There’s also an app (iOS and Android) with stats and charts, a dynamic coaching feature and activity reminders that politely ask you to get up and take a walk if you’ve been sitting around for far too long. As for how it looks, don’t fret, ‘cos you won’t be getting rubber-and-plastic. Nope, this little elegant – and understated – beauty has a 42mm stainless steel case, paired with an alligator strap that looks rather dishy. Or pick the gold-plated one if you want some more bling.

But you know what we really, really love? The battery life. There’s no need to plug this into a charging dock along with your phone at the end of the day – instead, you get upto 25 months of usage on a regular watch battery. Prices? The Horological Smartwatch range starts at ₹70,800.
