And the smartness doesn't end there. There's also a healthy dose of notification action, where you be notified about calls and messages from specific contacts on the watch itself. You set up a number for a contact and when they calls you'll get a vibration and the hands will point to corresponding number on the face.
There's also an alarm set via the app and the ability to add dual time zones.
