A mechanical chronograph smart watch?! Yes please!
Aside from the slightly ugly watch face, the design is pretty damn traditional. The inclusion of the chronography is really nice (I'm a sucker for them, just look at this Omega Chronostop! www.old-omegas.com/chronostop.html).
I'd much rather see watches like this than stuff like the G Watch or even the Moto 360. Sure the Moto 360 is "sleek" and "stylish" but I think the mechanical aspects are what make watches so special to have and look at.
is it just me, or has anyone else been waiting for these kind of watches? I still probably wont get, but it sure is nice to see precision being attempted in a smart watch.
Pictures are from Kairos site and they do caution they're still very much a mock up
So I remain skeptical that we will see a good 'hybrid' smartwatch in the near future. I think in terms of hybrids we will see mostly:
1. Great mechanical watches, with not so good 'smart' bits, possibly made by someone that understands movements but not the digital bits, (this could be the Omega's and Breitlings)
2. A watch with fantastic smart features and a not so classy or great movement. This I could see any tech company or even a startup doing.
