Tommy Hilfiger TH 24/7

tommy hilfiger hybrid watch

Compared to many of the other smart analogs, Tommy Hilfiger’s debut hybrid watch uses a less subtle method of displaying your smart information, with the OLED display built into the analog dial. The digital information being sprawled across the tidy watch face looks a little out of place, but it makes for easier reading than the mini sub dials, plus you can see who’s getting in touch from the watch.

Fitness Features

Step count, goal progress, vibrating alarm.

Notification Features

Calls, text, email, app alerts.

Waterproof Rating

Up to 50-meters (5 ATM).

Battery

The TH 24/7 uses two batteries: one needs charging every 5 days or so, and the other lasts up to 2 years and doesn’t need charging.

App

Compatible with Android 4.4 or higher and iOS 9.0 or higher.

Breitling Exospace B55 Connected

swiss hybrid watch Breitling Exospace B55 Connected

Breitling’s connected watch is designed for aviation enthusiasts. If jumping into the cockpit of an airplane is one of your pass times, then there’s a good chance the $7K price tag of this watch won’t be much of an issue.

Why do say that? I went to a friend’s wedding a few weeks ago, and the reception was at the Avitor Hotel on the outskirts of Farnborough airport. As a treat for his dad, my friend flew him in from Malaga on a Learjet. It cost him about £8.5K.. There’s money in the sky, people.

Fitness Features

The Exospace B55 Connected doesn’t do fitness tracking, but it does offer a suite of specialist aviation features, including Chrono Flight, Chrono Add, Lap Timer, and Time Zone. It also has a vibrating alarm.

Notification Features

Calls, text, email, app alerts.

Waterproof Rating

Up to 100-meters (10 ATM).

Battery

Around 2 months – rechargeable.

App

Compatible with Android 4.4 or higher and iOS 7.0 or higher.

Price Tag

Around $7,000.
