Mondaine Helvetica No 1 Smartwatch Review
Monday - 13 April 2015
Mondaine successfully launch their first ever smartwatch entitled The Mondaine Helvetica No 1 Smartwatch; an exciting step into the future with a nod to their iconic history.
The Helvetica collection is an infusion of timeless Swiss design, innovation, functionality and high craftsmanship - qualities desired in a timepiece to ensure reliability. The design is well thought out and balanced with an emphasis on a soft, fluid aesthetic that oozes sophistication and a logical structure. Combining ingenuity with minimalism is the perfect ingredients to creating an iconic design classic such as the newly released smart watch. The Helvetica font was chosen as the core inspiration due to its discreet and subtle yet strong conviction to ensure reading time is efficient.
The Mondaine Helvetica No 1 Smartwatch is powered by MotionX, which enables the bi-directional communication between the timepiece and the mobile device. The connection is formed via an app, which is downloaded to the phone or tablet. It is refreshing to witness the smart watch without a digital screen, which displays the data. In contrast, the information is read in a traditional analogue style via the sub dial at 6 o’clock; a sophisticated, subtle and classic move into the future of watchmaking. The smart watch has an activity tracker, which successfully counts the wearer’s steps, distance and calories with a hope to reach their personal goal. Another feature monitors the owners sleep patterns determining their total nights sleep with notes of light, deep and disturbed sleep. All important data can be backed up and stored in the MotionX cloud.
Take a leap into the future of the watch industry by pre-ordering the Mondaine Smartwatch.
