Tissot Announce New T-Touch Connect Solar Watches

Introducing solid competition against the likes of Apple and Garmin, Tissot have revealed their new collection of Tissot T-Touch Connect Solar watches. Just as the name suggests, the connected timepieces come equipped with all the advantages smartwatch technology can offer alongside a solar powered movement and a design that remains distinctively Tissot.  


Proudly Swiss made, the T-Touch Connect Solar watches have been designed to look very similar to their iconic T-Touch Expert Solar with the same 47mm sized case, dial design, 100 metre water resistance and compass bezel but housed within is something entirely new. The in-house developed Sw-ALPS low-energy operating system has been entirely designed and engineered in Switzerland and appears to be the flagship of an entirely new generation of connected watches for the Swatch Group. Powered almost entirely by sunlight, the operating system connects to your phone using a Bluetooth Low Energy chip which impressively minimises the energy consumed during data sharing.


At a time when data protection is a hot-topic issue, Tissot are overtly reassuring users that the Tissot T-Touch Connect Solar watches will not send data to third parties, offering full privacy protection with Swiss made data storage. The connected watches also offer an impressive battery life, with approximately six months of power between charges and even more if you spend most of your time outdoors. Solar power is consumed directly through the dial through a photovoltaic cell, and according to Tissot, most wearers can get by using the watch only charging it via light. Nevertheless, for those spending large times indoors or heavy users of the GPS and Bluetooth features, the Tissot T-Touch Connect Solar will come with a wireless charging cradle for topping up the battery life.


As expected, the Tissot T-Touch Connect Solar boasts a remarkably long list of smart features perfect for fitness fanatics, outdoor adventurers and even everyday businessmen who need a clean, pared-down design with incredible smart notifications. For those searching for your next sports watch, the Tissot T-Touch Connect Solar watch boasts an incredible selection of activity profiles such as hiking, mountaineering, cycling and basketball alongside a perpetual calendar, countdown, various timers, alarms, meteo functions, altimeter and weather forecasts so you can always stay on top of your performance and reach your fitness goals.


After your workout, the Tissot T-Touch Connect Solar will accompany you through your work and social life with a stunning scratch resistant sapphire crystal display that with just one simply click can revert from a connected watch to a classic analog-looking timepiece. Available in titanium, rose gold and black PVD, the connected watches provide unbeatable connectivity to your smartphone with access to your calls, texts, emails, WhatsApp messages, Facebook notifications and more all delivered directly onto the screen. The smartphone connectivity is compatible with the iOS, Android and Harmony mobile operating systems.


Expected to be released late November, the full collection of Tissot T-Touch Connect Solar watches is available to pre-order on the Jura Watches website here. For more information on these connected watches and to speak to one of our team, get in touch on 01335 453453 or at
