Startup MyKronoz has used IFA to announce its ZeTime hybrid smartwatch is set to receive global availability and shipping in September.

The crowdfunding success story, which raised more than $6 million during its Indiegogo campaign back in April, features mechanical hands over a TFT color touchscreen and can function for up to 30 days on a single charge.

Available in two sizes — regular being 44mm and petite sitting at 39mm — the device is priced at $199.90, and currently on display at the Berlin trade show, as well as MWC Americas next month in San Francisco.

First impressions: MyKronoz ZeTime hands on review

"ZeTime has already made history thanks to the support of over 30,000 backers, becoming the most funded hybrid smartwatch and the largest campaign ever from a European company," said MyKronoz CEO Boris Brault.

In terms of basic smartwatch features, the ZeTime allows users to view incoming calls, read notifications, check weather forecasts, play music and take of control the smartphone camera.

Additionally, it's equipped with a 3-axis accelerometer and optical heart rate monitor in order to provide details regarding heart-rate, steps, distance, calories, active minutes and sleep. In case the device happens to suffer an impromptu dip, it also features water resistance up to 5ATM.

We can't speak to the accuracy of its activity tracking or how its hands over screen design works in comparison to regular hybrids, but stay tuned for when we get our hands on the device and are free to take it for a spin.
