Frederique Constant Smartwatch

Breaking the conventional concept of watchmaking, Frederique Constant partners with MMT (Manufacture Modules Technologies) and launched the Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch. They are one of the first luxury brands to offer a smartwatch. Frederique Constant wants to have a tryout of basic smartwatches instead of diving too deep at the first place, therefore the Horological Smartwatch integrates high technology into classic luxury Swiss watch design—no digital screens, no charging ports, and look identical to traditional timepieces. With Bluetooth connection in the watch to the smartphones, there are multiple functions in the companion app (MMT-365) that are vital to the experience.

On a 42 mm rose gold case, this watch features much more functions than it seems. It has activity tracker that can help you keep track of daily steps, calories burned, and total distance you walked, active alerts that can remind you to get some exercise if you have been idle for a set amount of time, and the best part is the dynamic coach that can give you suggestions, tips, and information specifically for you based on your activity and sleep goals. If you wear this watch or put it under your pillow when you go to bed, it will provide details on much time you spent in deep sleep, light sleep, or awake via the sleep monitoring function. The smart sleep alarm function ensures you wake up at the best appropriate time in your sleep cycle. Since the watch is connected to the smartphone, you never need to set a time and date since it will pick up the time from your smartphone and automatically display the new time—basically like a smart worldtimer. It also has notifications function that reminds you if there is a missed call or received a new message by vibrating. It is amazing how all these functions are all managed in such a simple and elegant timepiece.
