CNET First Look
Hands-on with the Mondaine activity-tracking smartwatchWe take a closeup look at Mondaine's Helvetica 1 smartwatch, which fuses minimalist style with activity-tracking tech.
I'm Andrew Hoyle for C-Net, and I'm here taking a look at the Helvetica 1 Smart, from Swiss watch brand, Mondaine. Now, this watch maintains Mondaine's classic style; you can see it has an all metal body, with a crown on the side, and it has Mondaine's minimalist watchface. But what makes it smart? Well, this thing will track your activity and it will even track your steps as well. The watch connect to an app which is available on IOS or Android and you can see how far you've walked, an estimation of your calories. And the amount of steps you've taken, will also track you sleep and give you an overview of how long you slept and ideally, how much deep and light sleep you had. Using the app, you can set activity goals and you can see on the watch face a smaller dial towards the bottom which shows a percentage of that goal. It's a nice looking watch and it's definitely going to appeal to those of you after a classic Swiss watch, but still wanted a little bit of smart technology in there, as well. It's due to go on sale towards the end of the year all around the world and Mondaine has said that. But it should cost under $900 US, although final prices haven't been announced yet. I'm Andrew Hoyle for CNET, and this is the Mondaine Helvetica watch smart.
