[MUSIC] And if you're after a smart watch that doesn't initially look smart watch, then the Frederqiue Constant Horological Smartwatch may be just the thing for you. Now from the outside you can see that this has a very classic Swiss watch style, it has the full metal design, and actually analog hands as well, and this very nice leather strap. Now, critically, for a good Swiss watch, this thing is made by hand in Switzerland so it is of very fine quality. But what, exactly, makes it smart? Well, it is able to count your steps which, using the app on both iOS and Android, it will give you an overview of how far you've walked, how many steps you've taken. And therefore hopefully how many calories you burned will also go into a sleep mode to tracks your sleeping and tell you how much light and deep sleep you've had, to try to give you an overview of general well being. Given it's Swiss handmade construction, it should be now surprise this. Costs more than your average Android Wear smartwatch. In fact, this starts at 950 Euros, which translates to around $1000. But there is also a fancier, rose gold plated version, which starts at 1250 Euros, or around $1330. It's available beginning of June, and you should be able to find it globally.
