Frédérique Constant - Horological Smartwatch

Postby koimaster » February 7th 2016, 2:57pm

Since this year’s Basel World I was eager to try the Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch. I had a quick glimpse of what I can expect from it at the fair earlier this year (here is the article of that) and I really liked what I saw there. We visited their stand after TAG Heuer announced their collaboration with Intel and Google to come up with something interesting. Apple watch was already around and we heard rumors that some other major brands are developing their versions of a smart watch, so I was all hyped up about the issue. At the end of July, I received my review watch, the new Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch.

A good reason to buy an Apple Watch.

Agreed, and if not an Apple there are much better options than this... Do you think Patek will jump on too? :mrgreen:

Just the term "smart watch" makes me gag, but I agree with foggy. All these traditional watchmakers struggling to play follow-the-leader is embarrassing. In a year, Wiley Lowe's successor will be on UStream offering that FC on six interest-free payments ... but it will already be obsolete by then - Apple improves or re-invents their products month by month. Watch companies trying to jump on the bandwagon are just pissing up a rope - it can't be done.
