Powered by MotionX® BASELWORLD 2016 : Frederique Constant presents its Horological Smartwatch
Swiss watch manufacturer Frederique Constant Geneve, known for its classical and refined timepieces of exceptional value, is delighted to present a new model of Horological Smartwatch, powered by MotionX®.
With the introduction of 5 new in-house calibers and the launch of the MotionX® powered Horological Smartwatch, 2015 was an important year for Frederique Constant. Indeed after three years of research and development, the brand was the first in the Swiss watch industry to introduce the Horological Smartwatch. The enthusiasm over this innovative timepiece has materialized over the last 6 months through incredible worldwide demand. To answer this need, Frederique Constant has decided to introduce a new model, which will undoubtedly please the eye of all classical timepiece lovers.
Blending modern and classic is the aspiring sentiment from this new Horological Smartwatch, which is crafted by hand from fine materials and comes with a promise of longevity.
This Horological Smartwatch comes with a 42mm highly-polished rose gold plated steel case and a captivating navy blue dial that features applied indexes and roman numerals. A convex sapphire crystal protects the delightfully beautiful dial. The watch is waterproof up to 50 metres and finished with a stunning blue alligator bracelet.
The Horological Smartwatch is built with the MMT-285 calibre, and powered by Fullpower’s end-to-end MotionX® technology platform, with a battery life that will keep your Horological Smartwatch running up for two and a half years before replacement, without the need to be charged.
By combining technology and our watchmaking tradition, the Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch takes luxury and simplicity to a new level. Offering hours, minutes and date, the "smart" aspect of this watch comes from its ability to accurately track your activity and sleep patterns. The smaller dial at 6 o’clock on the watch dial shows the percentage of your activity or sleep against your goal in real-time. This data is also displayed in the attractive MotionX-365® app, available for iOS and Android, with simple and easy to understand graphics to highlight how much one has moved and slept during the day, week, or month. The MotionX® high-accuracy end-to-end solution that includes firmware, applications and cloud infrastructure includes over 110 patents and encapsulates 7 years of research and development of a leading Silicon Valley technology leader.
Once again, Frederique Constant has proven with this new Horological Smartwatch that passion and innovation can proudly integrate alongside maturity, age and beauty.
