Swiss watch giant Frederique Constant has launched its upgraded Horological Smartwatch in the UK, as it widens the roll out of its wearable tech.
The original Horological Smartwatch, which features fitness tracking technology and the ability to pair to iOS and Android smartphones, was released back at Baselworld 2015 and has been an unmitigated success for the company. Its CEO Peter Stas told Wareable that the smartwatch alone had helped the company grow in 2015, bucking the market trend.

Frederique Constant's Worldtimer edition, which was unveiled at Baselworld 2016, enables users to set a second time zone in the partner app. Once set, an alternative time can be summoned by pressing the crown three times, which will send the hands spinning momentarily to your home time zone.
The upgraded Horological Smartwatch boasts a 42mm rose gold plated steel case and a navy blue dial, and is waterproof up to 50 metres. However, it comes with a leather strap so you won't want to be getting it too wet.
It shouldn't be the last we hear from the company either. Stas told Wareable that it was expanding the Horological Smartwatch range with a new edition aimed at women, which should see it shrink down the case size.
The Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch is on sale in the UK from £1,120 from WatchShop.
