A COACH ON YOUR WRIST
The Swiss brand enhances its touchscreen watch with novel features. And, the result? It now connects to a smartphone and can monitor sports performances.
Long before touchscreens invaded the world, Tissot had already innovated with its T-Touch in 1999. At the time, you could browse through its menus just by touching its sapphire crystal. Since then, this watch offering a host of possibilities has embraced a wide array of technological improvements. This time round, the brand unveils an impatiently-awaited upgrade with its T-Touch Connect Sport, the first-ever model equipped with sport and health functions. The different colored variations, imagined around a versatile 43.75 mm-diameter titanium, black PVD or rose gold PVD case, waterproof to depths of 50 meters, are equipped with a bright AMOLED screen that ensures excellent data readability under any condition of light.
Thanks to its operating system, monitoring activities like running and cycling becomes child’s play. All the data collected (speed, heart rate, calories, etc.) are transmitted to a smartphone once the dedicated app has been downloaded. As such, the wearer can check their progress over the long term at any time. What’s more, the interfacing with an iOS, Android or Harmony phone also integrates notifications. The T-Touch Connect Sport‘s battery is another of its strong points. It boasts solar cells which mean it has unlimited autonomy when used as a watch, 6 months when used in standard connected mode and 3 months in sport connected mode. In a nutshell, this model has everything it takes to become a can’t-do-without partner on a daily basis.
