The Frederique Constant mission is that of accessible luxury, quality watches at sensible prices

In 2015 Frederique Constant presented their horological smartwatch, which looks like a classical watch, but has sensors to measure sleep patterns and activity parameters such as walking and running. On a single subdial at 6 o’clock, it displays the percentage to which a defined objective has been attained. It connects to a smartphone, and its low power usage gives it a 25-month battery life.
