The Baselword watch fair is where the world's luxury watch and fashion brands unveil their latest timepieces. This year however, alongside the traditional switch analogue models, were a few watches with some connected smart skills.
Breitling's heritage may strictly lie in the high-end watches for pilots world, but even it was getting in on the connected game with the launch of the B55 Connected.
Combining analogue dials with digital displays, the B55 Connected gets the latter part of its name from its ability to sync with a Breitling app on your iPhone, for a variety of reasons.
We managed to go hands-on with the watch at the show, so click through to find out more.
It doesn't provide the sort of health tracking or notification displays we've seen on proper smartwatches, but the app does do a few handy things.
For one, you can check on the battery of the watch to make sure it's not about to conk out. The watch also uses the phone's radio to instantly swap between time zones when you're on the move -- no more fiddling with the crown to move the hands around.
Its main function, though, is to record the flight times of pilots. Breitling explained that all pilots are legally obliged to keep a record of all their flight times, so by having the watch track this and automatically store it on the phone, pilots may be able to simply email these records, rather than have to submit them on complicated paper forms.
