Movado is to create a new smart watches in cooperation with the full-power technology, Movado Swiss member, and with Hewlett-Packard, for daring smartwatches.
The Swiss-made watches are called Movado Motion, and are powered by Fullpower’s MotionX-365 platform. (It is the same platform used by Frédérique Constant and Alpina brands, which both unveiled smartwatches last year.) There are two versions: the Museum Sport, for men, and the Bellina, for women. They provide several fitness-related functions including steps tracking, sleep monitoring, sleep-cycle alarms and alerts that it is time to get out of your chair and move around. The watches are compatible with iOS 8-or-later and Android 4.4.3-or-later cellphones and tablets. The watches’ battery life is two years.
The men’s version (above), 44 mm in diameter, has a black dial with Movado’s signature dot at 12 o’clock and a subdial at 6 o’clock that show the date and provide fitness-tracking information. The watch is available with a steel case and black PVD bezel, with either a perforated black rubber strap ($995) or a steel bracelet ($1,195), or an all-PVD bracelet model ($1,495).
