Following the smartwatch bandwagon, Breitling just unveiled their latest model which – the Breitling B55 Connected Chronograph.
Officially designed for the aviator and aspiring aviator market, the B55 Connected takes a different approach than most wristwatches out there – rather then transforming the watch into an addon for a smartphone, Breitling turns tables and uses the smartphone as an addon for the watch!
On the chronograph side, the B55 Connected is based on Breitling’s previous Caliber B50 and is based on thermocompensated “superquartz” movement – a Breitling in-house technology which supercharges previous quartz calibers by compensating for temperature changes and 10 times more accurate than standard quartz mechanisms. The B55 also features two large LED displays, WiFi inter-connectivity, electronic tachometer and an USB rechargeable battery to power them.
On the inter-connectivity side, the Breitling B55 Connected uses your smartphone more as a display unit than as a processing unit. Data from the phone such as flight times, departure and arrival times, etc … is uploaded to the app for storage and easy analyzing and some settings (time-setting, timezones, alarms, display and operating parameters, night mode) can be easier adjusted from the smartphone app and transferred to the watch. Watch the video to see it in action…
Breitling did not quote yet any price for the B55 Connected, but all missing details will be unveiled at the Baselworld 2015 show.
