I am not really a fan of smart watches, but I love Swatch! OK, I may not love everything they do but Swatch is where I started my career. Out of respect I like to report their evolution as a brand good or bad.
Swatch just released the Touch Zero One Smartwatch. This was unveiled in Klagenfurt, Austria for the official launch at the 2015 CEV A1 Beach Volleyball European Championship Final presented by Swatch, set for 28 July – 2 August. The Swatch Beach Volleyball Proteam athletes have been giving the new Touch Zero One an action-packed workout in the run-up to the launch:
The Swatch Touch Zero One Smartwatch is one watch packing in 5 original and innovative worlds including:HIT, CLAP, STEP, COACH and TIME.
These are how all the worlds work
HIT Strap your Touch Zero One to your active playing hand. In the heat of the game, the built-in sensor records the number of hits and shows the power of each one on the watch display. When the match is over, dig deeper with the Swatch Touch Zero One App for extra info and statistics including calories burned, the average hit power and a breakdown of the different kinds of hits.
CLAP You’re in the stands or the sand and you’re doing all you can to encourage your team put power in your claps to show your support and make as much noise as possible! The Touch Zero One display shows the total number of claps and the average power of your applause on a scale of 01 to 99. Check the App for an overview.
STEP Touch Zero One counts your steps, plus calories burned, distance traveled and activity time all on your wrist. Hook up to the App for a graphical activity overview: how many steps walking vs. how many running; total calories burned; 31-day step counter memory. On the watch, you can set a daily step goal in kilometers or miles.
COACH Coach is the guy who motivates and rewards you — with an ice cream cone if you reach your daily step goal: and the closer you get, the bigger the ice cream! To spur you on, the App lets you choose between 3 built-in coaches with different personalities and motivational styles: LAZY DUDE, TOUGH GUY or SUPERHERO.
TIME No matter where you are, you’re in the world of time, and like every Swatch Touch, the Touch Zero One has 6 functions: time 1, time 2, date, alarm, chrono (stopwatch) and timer. You can also use the App to set time 1, time 2, date and alarm and to choose different ringtones.
The best part is unlike other smart watches where you need to plug it in every night to charge the battery, the Swatch Touch Zero Smartwatch is a swatch where the battery last for more than several month’s at a time.
The Swatch Touch Zero One App is downloadable for free. It runs on Android (Bluetooth®-Version 4.0LE, Android 4.4 or higher) and iOS (iPhone 5 or higher running the latest software version). Increase the fun and sync your Touch Zero One with the App to make the most of your time on the courts, in the stands or anywhere in the 5 Worlds in One.
