Peter Stas of Frederique Constant
Coming this May, the promise of full integration between conventional Swiss form and mechanical function, with cutting edge info-delivery will be realized in a single watch (or range) when watchmaker Frederique Constant/Alpina unveils its Swiss Horological Smartwatches, now in production.
Powered by MotionX, the new Swiss Horological Smartwatches are capable of bi-directional communication with iPhone and Android apps. Discoverwatches by clicking on “read more”…

“Frédérique Constant and Alpina, the Swiss Horological Smartwatches, retain their natural classic beauty and can deliver the benefits of the quantified self, all without ever having to recharge a battery”, said Peter Stas, the co-founder and CEO of the Frédérique Constant group and continued his introduction by saying: “The Swiss Horological Smartwatch is the synthesis of high-tech innovation and traditional Swiss watch craftsmanship; it is the link (no pun intended) between modern and classic, and the bridge between Silicon Valley and Switzerland. There is no digital screen on our Swiss Horological Smartwatch. Instead, the beautiful laser cut hands on the watch dial display information in analog form.”

The MotionX patented sensor-fusion engine tracks activity and sleep patterns with high accuracy. Activity and sleep information is presented in real-time on the Swiss Horological Smartwatch using traditional analog dials. The Swiss Horological Smartwatch synchronizes automatically with applications on Apple and Androidsmartphones. On the iOS and Android apps, simple and easy-to-understand graphics highlight how much one has moved and slept during the day, week, or month.
