HP And Movado Partner For The Bold Motion SmartwatchBy cheatmaster 02:41 Thu, 29 Jul 2021 Comments
Hewlett Packard (HP) is back with a second smartwatch, this time in partnership with Swiss watchmaker Movado. The Movado Brecent Motion looks more like a traditional watch than the Chronowing, the only real giveaway of the internal smarts is the Light Emitting Diode (LED) lights.
The Brecent Motion has a 44mm stainless steel casing with a black PVD-finish. It connects to an iOS (8+) or Android (4.4+) device over Bluetooth. The watch is water proof up to 50m and comes either with a black silicone strap or a stainless steel buckle.
There's no classy screen though. Notifications happen in two ways: vibration and the LEDs. It works like this – an appointment at 10:30 would be shown with a light at 10 o'clock and at 6 o'clock. Something like an email is shown as a pattern of lights.
Obviously with no classy screen notifications are pretty limited, but at least you should acquire remarkable battery life, right? Unfortunately it seems like it would only last a week, which isn’t that impressive (a Pebble could do that).
The Movado Brecent Motion being a Swiss watch means it's not cheap either. It's listed on Movado's site at $785. That's close to the limited edition Mondaine Helvetica 1 ($950), which packs sapphire glass, genuine leather and 2+ years of battery life.
PS. This isn’t Movado's first smartwatch, it also has the Museum Sport Motion and the Bellina Motion.
