Breitling has reinvented the connected watch with the Exospace B55. The swiss watch maker has applied a new philosophy placing the smartphone in the service of the watch so as to enhance its functionality and user friendliness.
The chronograph remains the centrepiece and the connection with the smartphone is primarily designed to improve its functionality. The communication between the devices enables the two instruments to form a perfectly complementary pair in which each is used for what it does best.
Since the main assets of a smartphone are its screen and its ergonomic interface, owners of the Exospace B55 can use their phone to perform certain adjustments such as time-setting, timezones, alarms, display and operating parameters like night mode.
Conversely, the user can upload from the chronograph to the smartphone the results of various measurements such as flight times, recorded times with split times, and lap times, so as to be able to read them more easily, store them or pass them on.
The Exospace B55 multifunction electronic chronograph also receives notifications of the smartphone’s incoming emails, messages or phone calls as well as reminders of upcoming appointments.
