Take that&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/apple-iwatch/review">Apple Watch</a>, which reportedly only lasts for one full day before needing a top-up.</p> <p>The MB Chronowig is designed to work with plenty of devices too - it&#39;s compatible with iPhones from the iPhone 4S up and Androids running Android 4.3 and newer.</p> <p>As well as looking like a normal watch, the Chronowig should also feel like one: it uses normal watch-style straps in leather, nylon or rubber, and from the pics we&#39;ve seen it doesn&rsquo;t look to be any thicker than some metal wrist-burdens that don&rsquo;t offer any phone smarts at all.</p> <p>After all the fuss about whether the&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/apple-iphone-6/review">iPhone 6</a>&nbsp;would get a Sapphire glass display, you&nbsp;may also be interested to know that the HP watch has a Sapphire Crystal top plate: it&rsquo;s harder than nails.

Well, the MB Chronowig is smart, but not that smart.</p> <p>It doesn&rsquo;t run <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/google/android-wear/review">Android Wear</a> or another known operating system, but instead seems to offer fairly basic smart features that all take place using Bluetooth. The front&#39;s not even a touchscreen &ndash; can a smartwatch already be retro?</p> <p>You get email alerts, calendar notifications and can control music from the watch. But you&rsquo;re not going to be playing games, measuring your heart rate or tracking your runs. There are 10 smart features in total, just a fraction of what&#39;s possible with most other smartwatches. Simple is the order of the day.</p> <p>It does have a share tracker function, though, which seems apt because this watch does not come cheap. It&rsquo;s expected to cost between US$350 (RM1164) and US$650 (RM2162).</p> <p>And making a UK conversion is a bit pointless when, with just 300 MB Chronowig watches being made, they may not be too easy to get hold of anyway.

Other than that, it doesn&#39;t do much different from the standard fitness tracker - it measures fitness wearables, calories burned, heart rate and steps taken, and apparently also your sleep habits.</p> <p>As for notifications, you will get the standard ones for texts, calls and calendar appointments. Expect small icons as the screen is too small to display whole mssages &ndash; you won&#39;t be reading any emails on this. One particularly cool feature is that you can unlock your PC with the wristband.</p> <p>Pricing is not yet available and Lenovo has yet to make an official announcement regarding the wristband or any other wearable tech it might have.

Jean-Claude Biver, head of the watch brand spoke of the plans to a Swiss newspaper.</p> <p>Biver had previously been quoted disparaging the Apple Watch, calling it (among other things) &quot;too feminine&quot; and lacking sex appeal.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/erna-mahyuni" title="View user profile.">Erna Mahyuni</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Bringing sexy to the smartwatch </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Despite Biver&#39;s comments, the watch industry is feeling the pressure as its territory is now being usurped by tech companies such as Samsung, Motorola and now, Apple.</p> <p>While not giving full details on the planned TAG smartwatch, Biver of course insisted that it would not copy the Apple Watch in any way. He said that to follow in some other company&#39;s footsteps was not something TAG could &quot;afford&quot; to do.</p> <p>TAG is not a complete stranger to the making of smartwatches, apparently having made one for Oracle&#39;s sailing team. The Tag Heuer Aquaracer 72 was deemed the first Swiss sportswatch created especially for sailing.</p> <p>The watch, based on TAG Heuer&#39;s Aquaracer 500M Calibre 72 Countdown chronograph weighed 108 grams, was designed to fit over a wetsuit and was impact-resistant to 5,000 Gs. Its digital display was optimised to show a data stream of important boat and sailing data that included boat speed, sail pressure, true wind speed and true wind direction. All this complemented by a red leather strap with the TAG Heuer logo.</p> <p>But in comparison to the sleekness of the current batch of Android Wear devices, the Aquaracer 72 looks rather dated. Perhaps TAG Heuer might need to relearn what &#39;sexy&#39; means in a world that will soon be inundated with smartwatches.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:</strong> <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/pebble/smartwatch">Check out the latest in smartwatch tech</a></p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://gizmodo.com/luxury-brand-tag-heuer-wants-to-make-a-smartwatch-1634646045" target="_blank">Gizmodo</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="TAG Heuer promises a smart-looking smartwatch " alt="TAG Heuer promises a smart-looking smartwatch " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/tag%20heuer%203.jpg?1410758306" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/my/smartwatch/tag-heuer-promises-smart-looking-smartwatch/news#comments Smartwatch Wearable tech Mon, 15 Sep 2014 05:16:37 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1447653 at http://www.stuff.tv
