Frederique Constant je predstavio četvrti inovativni pametni sat u svojoj kolekciji, Smartwatch Vitality, mješanac digitalnog i analognog svijeta

Smartwatch Vitality novi je odgovor iz Frederique Constanta na sve veću potražnju za pametnim satovima. I poput prethodnika ovaj. model kombinira mehanički svijet klasičnih satova s digitalnim rješenjima pametnih satova. U ovom se slučaju digitalni displej pojavljuje na zahtjev korisnika, a funkcije su mu pojačane novom generacijom integriranog senzora,  Philips Wearable Sensing, kojim očitava puls izravno s ruke.

Frederique Constant je započeo svoju priču s integracijom pametnih satova još 2015. predstavljanjem Horological Smartwatcha. Postavljen je tada potpuno novi segment satova koji kombiniraju analogni prikaz vremena pomoću klasičnih kazaljki potpomognut kvarcnim mehanizmom te ga kombiniraju s pametnim modulima čije informacije isporučuje digitalno.

Uslijedio je Horological Smartwatch Notify iz 2016. koji je funkcionirao na istom principu uz dodatne notifikacije poziva i poruka te Classic Hybrid Manufacture iz 2018., prvi model koji je kombinirao kućni mehanizam s inteligentnim funkcijama.

Jedan brojčanik, dva displeja, najbolje od oba svijeta

Smartwatch Vitality ima inovativan brojčanik s dva lica, po prvi puta u ponudi Frederique Constanta. Prvi je klasičan, elegantan bez ikakvih vidljivih digitalnih notifikacija koje se pojavljuju tek pritiskom na krunicu. Tada je moguće očitati brojne informacije poput pulsa srca, druge vremenske zone, poruke… Mali displej se pojavljuje iznad pozicije 6 sati.

Smartwatch Vitality povezuje se preko Frederique Constant Smartwatch App (dostupna za iOS i Android) te preko nje su moguće dodatne konfiguracije i individualizacija. Prelazak s jedne na drugu funkciju vrlo je jednostavan i intuitivan, a vrši se pritiskom krunice. Prebacivanje u standby mod je automatsko i pri tome digitalni displej postaje nevidljiv na brojčaniku.

Smartwatch Vitality koristi znanje stečeno posljednjih pet godina. Dolazi u dvije osnovne izvedbe, muška koja je opremljena FC-287 kalibrom te ženska opremljena FC-286 kalibrom. Frederique Constant je ponovno unaprijedio korištenje kvarcnu tehnologije u korist korisnika. Baterija sata traje do 7 dana kod ženskog modela te 11 dana u muškoj izvedbi, a promjeri kućišta su 36 mm ženski model te 42 mm muški model.

Kolekciju Frederique Constant Smartwatch Vitality  čini ukupno 8 modela, po četiri za svaki spol. Muškarcima su namijenjene izvedbe u nehrđajućem čeliku u kombinaciji s crnim gumenim remenom, metalnom narukvicom ili kožnim remenom. Pozlaćeno kućište je dostupno u obje linije, a ženske modele krase još i izvedbe s brojčanicima kod kojih je dio indeksa označen dijamantima.

Frederique Constant Smartwatch Vitality, funkcije

–  Activity tracking: number of steps, calories burned, distance covered.
–  Dynamic coach: personalised guidance to help the user stay in shape, based on the activity tracker, sleep tracker and the goals that have been defined.
–  Get-active alerts: physical activity reminder after a certain period of inactivity.
–  Sleep monitoring: sleep cycle analysis: deep sleep, light sleep and time spent awake.
–  Smart sleep alarms: alarm based on sleep cycle analysis, to wake the user at the optimal time.
–  Worldtimer / Second time zone
–  Always on-time: the time and date automatically synchronises with the smartphone’s information to which the watch is connected.
–  Call notification
– Message notification

In 2020, these features are joined by various new functions:

–  Workout: measures the user’s pulse when taking exercise. Once the function activated, the heart rate is measured every 10 seconds. Statistics from the training session can then be viewed in detail via the app.
–  Chronograph: can now be activated and stopped simply by pressing on the watch glass. While training, the digital dial display will automatically switch to the minutes and seconds countdown timer. To ensure that this countdown remains easy to read even in strong light (common outdoors), the minute hand will also show the passing of the seconds.
–  Heart rate monitoring: the Smartwatch Vitality is equipped with a new-generation sensor, developed by experts in the field, Philips Wearable Sensing. Thanks to the integration of the optical heart rate measurement, the pulse can now be taken from the wrist roughly every minute for greater accuracy. This new built-in sensor also provides information on physical activity and training performance. It can be active day and night, its algorithm also using the brightness index.
–  Heart rate notifications: in the event that the user’s heart rate drops too low or climbs too high, a vibration and a visual alert will be emitted by the watch, which can be turned into an alarm if the problem persists.
–  Breathing exercise: offers a series of breathing exercises to reduce stress and regulate the user’s breathing.
–  Messages review: after selecting the apps the user wants to receive notifications from, they will be able to view the last 5 messages received (chronologically) on their watch dial. Apps may include: Mail, Messages, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Instagram, Snapchat, LinkedIn, WeChat, Viber, Uber, KakaoTalk, Pinterest and Spotify.
–  Weather: maximum and minimum local temperatures displayed instantly on the dial. To optimise these features’ efficiency and provide the user with as much information as possible, everything is gathered, analysed and consolidated within the app.
