Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch wins Bucherer Watch Award 2015

Swiss watch manufacturer Frederique Constant has won the Bucherer Watch Award 2015 for its Horological Smartwatch. When Frederique Constant launched its Horological smartwatch, it paved the way to the Swiss connected watchmaking industry. The watch embodies the true symbiosis between classicism and technological innovation, dressed in the finest aesthetics of the Horological tradition, but concealing a layer of smart functions. The Horological Smartwatch is built with the MMT-285 calibre, and powered by Fullpower’s end-to-end MotionX technology platform, with a battery life that will keep your Horological Smartwatch running up for two and a half years before replacement, without the need to be charged.

By combining technology and watchmaking tradition, the Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch takes luxury and simplicity to a new level. Offering hours, minutes and date, the “smart” aspect of this watch comes from its ability to accurately track your activity and sleep patterns. The smaller dial at 6 o’clock on the watch dial shows the percentage of your activity or sleep against your goal in real-time. This data is also displayed in the attractive MotionX-365 app, available for iOS and Android, with simple and easy to understand graphics to highlight how much one has moved and slept during the day, week, or month. The MotionX high-accuracy end-to-end solution that includes firmware, applications and cloud infrastructure includes over 110 patents and encapsulates seven years of research and development of a leading Silicon Valley technology leader.

The Bucherer Watch Award competition is organized by the Maison Bucherer in its Parisian boutique, which is the largest store in the world dedicated to exceptional timepieces. The prize is awarded for the most representative piece of this year’s watchmaking know-how and excellence. Amateurs and watch enthusiasts had three weeks to vote for the most innovative, technical and elegant timepiece, amongst a selection of 32 watches, chosen by a jury of professionals from the watchmaking industry and collectors alike.
