A few days ago, we discussed the forthcoming smartwatch from Frederique Constant. Currently, this is one of only two gadgets that combine electronic intelligence with mechanical movement created in Switzerland. The other watch, X-ONE, is made by a group of Swiss watchmakers named Conex Watches.
X-ONE, which was unveiled at CES 2018 earlier this year, combines wristwatch technology with Swiss watchmaker history. The elegant clock has a mechanical caliber SW200 movement with the smallest dual micromotors ever created and a counter on the linear indication. The caliber ensures low energy usage while powering the automated movement for hours, minutes, and seconds.
The water-resistant (5 ATM) device includes a smart module and a smartphone app to go with it. A perpetual calendar, a GMT with automated time zones, and several customizability options are available. Additionally, you receive call and message notifications, and you may add a contact from your family or friends to a particular number on the watch counter so you can covertly see who is calling.
Basic fitness features are provided through the watch’s integrated pedometer, and it also lets you manage your music. You may send and receive messages in Morse Code, which is an interesting feature. The library will eventually receive an upgrade with new features, according to the business.
Handmade There are operational prototypes of the gadget in Le Locle, Switzerland. In order to generate money to sell the watch to the general public, the business has now turned to Kickstarter. With 45 days left in the campaign, it has already exceeded its goal in less than a day.
Cost: $750 and above
