There&rsquo;s also a &ldquo;Sounds&rdquo; setting in the menu, which hints at the presence of a built-in speaker &ndash; something Android Wear watches don&rsquo;t have.</p> <p>This watch is a prototype, so we should stress that there&rsquo;s no evidence that it&rsquo;ll launch in SG, or indeed at all &ndash; but if not it&rsquo;s certainly likely to influence future smartwatches.

says designer Bastian.</p> <p>Mission accomplished, although the MB Chronowig is clearly a pretty male-centric design; all you&#39;ll see on its website are moody-looking blokes with designer stubble.</p> <p>Next up on the list of pros, the watch lasts for up to seven days off a charge. Take that&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/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/sg/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.

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 (S$451) and US$650 (S$839).</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.
