Since this year’s Basel World I was eager to try the Frederique Constant Horological Smart replica watches. I had a quick glimpse of what I can expect from it at the fair earlier this year (here is the article of that) and I really liked what I saw there. We visited their stand after TAG Heuer Replica announced their collaboration with Intel and Google to come up with something interesting. Apple watch was already around and we heard rumors that some other major brands are developing their versions of a smart watch, so I was all hyped up about the issue. At the end of July, I received my review watch, the new Frederique Constant Horological Smart cheap replica watch.
Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch
In today’s life we are getting use to the term “smart” attached to various things. We have smart phones, that’s where it all started. You can buy smart TVs, smart washing machines and slowly smart cars will be offered to us. Of course the watch industry also realized there is a market gap when it comes to smart cheap replica watches UK. Apple started to develop their version of a watch and we could be sure that the watch industry will come up with numerous answers to that soon. For all of you who are loosely associated with the term smart watch; it is a watch that has a bunch of added features that can monitor your daily activity and give you feedback on that on a regular basis. It can count the steps you took per day, show you your heart rate, monitor your sleep and even help you develop your daily routine to become more aware of your body and its needs. All this is achieved with a watch strapped around your wrist during the day – and even at night.
The first Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch deliveries in the World hit the stores on 27 July in The Hague. Robert-Jan did a nice write up about the event. My watch arrived on the same day BUT it was due to delivery problems on the couriers end. The review piece should have arrived to me the previous Friday so technically speaking I was the first man to receive the Cartier Replica watches UK even before it was handed out to the lucky owners on that hot July day in the Netherlands.
Anyways, the watch came with a little booklet that explained the basics and the different features of the piece. I have to say it is really easy to set up everything, you need about 5-10 minutes and you are ready to go. The watch comes in 2 dial colors (black and silver) on metal bracelet or leather strap. You can choose from stainless steel or rose gold plated steel case too. My timepiece is the most elegant version, in my opinion, with silver dial, black leather strap and deployant. The watch is pretty large at 42mm and the thickness of the case is 13.5mm. It is not bad for a timepiece that has to house the movement as well as the MotionX sensor underneath. Speaking of the movement it is the MMT-285 connected caliber with hour, minute and date display as well as some other functions which we will look at in a second.
The movement is quartz of course and has a 2 year+ battery life (25 months according to the mother brand). The dial as I have mentioned is very dressy, plain and simple. It has applied indexes, numbers are displayed in roman numerals. The only thing missing is the lume so in dark the watch is useless, but this is a dress replica watch not a sports model so it is no big deal at all. At 6 o’clock you find the sub dial and this is where it gets interesting; it does not only serve as the date display but also shows you some information regarding your activity.
We will look at the features in more detailed but first a few words about the concept. MotionX is a Silicon Valley company specialized in wearable sensor based technology. This is the company that is used by Nike Fuelband, Jawbone and in some ways even Apple Watch. The idea is pretty simple; you have the device – in this case, a watch – that has the MotionX sensor built in. This device is then connected to another Bluetooth enable device, like a smart phone or a tablet, where the data, the sensor picks up and stores, can be displayed. This means that the Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch is a connected device, meaning it is not functioning on its own, just like the Apple Watch for that matter. It needs to have a host that can display the results. On this app-based platform you can set your goal for the activity or the time of the Omega Replica watch, alarm and so on. You do not have to keep the phone on you at all times though but the watch cannot store significant amount of data.
How it works
Once you install the app and connect your watch via Bluetooth you have to follow the instructions on the screen to set up the device. You have to give the necessary details about you like gender, age, weight and height. There are 3 main areas for the watch to measure: activity (basically day-mode), sleep (night-mode) and goals. In activity mode you can set how many steps you want to take, which in my case was set to 10.000 by default. In sleep mode you set how many hours you want to sleep, which was set to 7 hours again by default. The last feature, goal, will show if you managed to achieve the above numbers. In order to success and gain 100% the Patek Philippe Replica watch measures your activity in a whole day, so combines activity and sleep. Meaning that if I did step 10.000 and slept at least 7 hours my goal is succeeded and I can see 100% or even more if I over slept or overstepped that given day.
