Finely crafted classic watches can do more than just tell the time and date these days..

With a mix of smartphone connectivity and companion apps, along with precision Quartz movement and the attention to detail of a fine Swiss timepiece, smart analog watches provide the best of both worlds.

These connected classics don’t have full-color touchscreen displays like Android Wear smartwatches or the Apple Watch, but you won’t need to charge the batteries every two days either. In fact, most of them don’t need charging at all, with batteries that last a few years like traditional watches.

Here are the best smart analog watches available..
