Breitling also gets on the bandwagon of smartwatch with a hybrid product. More chronograph smartwatch, is still able to communicate with your smartphone. The price is staggering, more than 8000 euro.
Breitling chronograph Exospace B55 is a high profile and with a vocation smart. Breitling Chronograph calls not connected to the case.
The Exospace B55 comes with a quite classic, sober and professional, but with the distinction of having two displays from a single line (above and below the mark) that add functionality smart: these allow you to show notifications replica watches from applications such as email, SMS and whatsapp, alert you when a call is coming showing the name or number of the caller. All Bluetooth Low Energy, not coincidentally the charge lasts about a couple of months.
Because who buys a chronograph as this, buys mainly a watch, not a smart phone with the strap; the Exospace B55 also shows your appointments on the calendar and in practice, if we want to be pragmatic, does everything we expect from one smartwatch.
The price, however, places it in the range of luxury items and the reasons are there: starting with titanium case and sapphire crystal, dear to those who follow the world of smartphones. This special glass that protects the display, promising exceptional resistance to marks or scratches and is anti-reflective on both sides (detail probably much appreciated by those who fly). But the heart of the quartz mechanism is the system SuperQuartz, who leads the movement to electronic compensated quartz, that could drastically reduce, over time, the difference in seconds “lost”.
To complete the budget there are the classic chronograph functions, as the countdown, alarms / alarm, and UTC time. The all in just 80g in weight. Instead, what weighs much more is the price: just over € 8000 but fans of this type of chronographs already know they are going when you are targeting a brand like that.
Is only wonder if the future of wearable wrist is represented, as in this case, by real smart watches with a small part, but that is all he needs, rather than from small smartphone wrist that most do also watch . The big brands of the watch industry seem to prefer this type of solution: classic mechanism with a small injection of connectivity. One thing is certain: a chronograph of this kind, while costing much, certainly not become obsolete after a year or two.
