The new Helvetica Smartwatch

Eternally more interested in hyperbole and emotion than actual facts, Mondaine didn’t know by what margin, but the new watch is 40mm, compared to the 44mm of the original. In watches 4mm makes a huge difference, and this new model is noticeably less bulky. It’s also slimmer and lighter, making it much more comfortable to wear, and dare we say it, unisex… More at Wareable.

A very unusual approach to displaying notifications. Look closely at the dial and see the letters mixed in with the hour marking numbers. I do like the way Mondaine is progressing in this area with a conservative approach and it is the brand who has got closest to making a smartwatch feel like something you could treasure for a long time.
