Connected “Hybrid Watches” by Kronaby

Ever since Apple launched their first smart watch more and more companies have been entering the space of connected watches. And most commonly they end up using a tiny screen as the watch face which has a tendency to drain the battery quite rapidly. Personally, I’ve never felt the need to read texts or see who’s calling directly on my wrist, and as a “watch guy” I actually prefer the classic look with simple numbers and dials.

It wasn’t until I came across the term “Hybrid Smartwatch”(that combines traditional watch design with smart functionality) that I actually could see myself getting a connected watch. One of the pioneers of this new hybrid space are Kronaby – A young Swedish company that creates absolutely stunning high quality connected time pieces. Their watches offers handy functions like filtered notifications, music & camera control and automatic adjustment of time zones whilst traveling. But the function I probably appreciate the most is the one that gives you a gentle reminder whenever you’ve been still for too long(I tend to get stuck behind a screen all day). Also, the fact that not having to charge the watch every night is of course also quite appealing.

Below you’ll find a couple of their beautiful watches and a video explaining some of the nifty functions.
