Breitling Exospace B55 Connected
Breitling are known for producing specialist instruments for professionals. Part of the trust that customers place in this brand has to do with the fact they come from years on the frontlines of modern technology. The Breitling Exospace B55 Connected represents a shift in a new direction and celebrates the bold and visceral innovation of the Space Age. Powered by a thermocompensated quartz movement, this smart watch comes backed by two months autonomy and is protected by a waterproof black titanium case. It has a unidirectional, ratcheted bezel with rider tabs used to indicate significant times, and a sapphire crystal which is glareproof on both sides. It can be paired with your smartphone via Bluetooth, enabling data transfer and remote setting changes. The user-friendly inner workings allow the wearer to connect to their smartphone without having to wade through swamps of technical jargon. No doubt ease of use has been the primary focus, followed closely by efficiency and, of course, Breitling’s proverbial Ace up their sleeve: function. This chronograph is equipped with a lap timer and also remains operational whilst offline. It amounts to a striking technological breakthrough, in keeping with Breitling’s heritage and their silent mission to accompany professionals beyond the limits of human understanding.
In addition to everything previously mentioned, this fresh model is an electronic and analogue combination, replete with an electronic tachymeter, perpetual calendar and backlit LCD digital display catering for improved readability. Finally, the Breitling Exospace features a rubber TwinPro strap and is water resistant to 100m. While this constitutes a shift away from traditional convention, this is surely a watch for futurists and purists alike.
