BASEL, Switzerland -- Can't decide to make room on your wrist for a classic Swiss watch or a smart activity tracker? The Horological Smartwatch from Frederique Constant mixes classic analogue dials and hand-made Swiss construction with smart internals, allowing this watch to track your activity and your sleep.

It's available globally from the beginning of June and will start at 950 Euros ($1,013, £687).

Instead of the all-digital displays seen on Android Wear watches like the LG G Watch R, the Frederique Constant maintains its classic analogue design.

It's hand-built in Switzerland too -- like most luxury watches -- and every model is quality tested.

If that's not fancy enough, there's a rose gold plated model too. It'll cost you a little more however, starting at 1250 Euros ($1,333, £904), with the leather strap.

The watch connects to the app (available on both iOS and Android) to show your steps, distance and calories burned throughout the day.

It doesn't have GPS, so it's not tracking the actual distance you've covered, but rather making an estimation, based on the steps you've taken. We'll have to wait until we test it to see how accurate it is.

It'll track your sleep as well, using motion sensors to indicate how much sleep in total you had and how much of that was light or deep sleep.

The small analogue dial on the bottom shows your activity throughout your day. It's displayed as a percentage of the goal that you set on the app.

The watch comes with this premium-looking real leather strap. A metal link version is also available for a slight increase in price.

The metal body is slim, lightweight and feels very comfortable to wear.
