This Baselworld, Frederique Constant launches its new high-tech marvel, the E-Strap.
Available today as a pre-order from frederiqueconstant.com for USD/EUR/CHF 229-249 (VAT incl.)
Intl’ shipping starting in May 2017.
The Frederique Constant E-Strap is a patented smart buckle and strap that fits on any analog watch. Hence our slogan: Make Any Analog Watch Smart. Built by the watch industry experts that created the Horological Smartwatch, Frederique Constant’s E-Strap is a logical next step to add smart functionality to existing watches. The ultra-small buckle extension can hardly be seen, as it is thin and covered by the leather strap. The Frederique Constant E-Strap is built on the full Horological Smartwatch Platform and its sophisticated functionality.
The same MMT-365 App that accompany Horological Smartwatches is available to Frederique Constant E-Strap customers. Frederique Constant E-Straps track ACTIVITY with GET ACTIVE ALERTS as well as MONITOR SLEEP with SMART SLEEP ALARMS. Most importantly, Frederique Constant E-Straps will be available for US$/EUR/CHF 229-249, which includes a beautiful leather strap in a variety of colors. The E-Strap will be available for customers through our After Sales Service; so any analog watch sent to us will have the possibility to be fitted for an E-Strap, if the client so desires.
The new “E-Strap” is adaptable to every analog watch having a lugwidth of 20mm or 22mm. Frederique Constant and MMT SwissConnect worked together once more to adapt the same applications of the Horological Smartwatch to the E-Strap. With the help of the companion MMT-365 app, the user is able to check his or her figures at any time while simply wearing the E-Strap on any traditional Frederique Constant quartz and automatic analog watch. The module inside the buckle has an ultra low power processor, highly integrated electronics device with bluetooth capabilities, and a rechargable battery.
Features of the E-Strap
Keep track of daily steps, calories burnt, and distance.
Wear the “E-Strap” at night or put it under the pillow to record the sleep pattern. A sleep tracking function provides details on how much time you spent in deep sleep, light sleep, or awake.
Sleep Cycle Alarm
Set a smart sleep alarm that will help you to wake up at the best appropriate time in your sleep cycle so that you wake up refreshed.
Set an alert to remind you to move if you’ve been idle for a set amount of time; you can customize your Get Active Alerts directly through the MMT-365 app.
Receive suggestions, tips, and information catered specifically to you based on your activity and sleep goals.
Cloud back-up and restore
Recover all of your data, even if you lose your E-Strap or phone. The E-Strap independently stores your activity and sleep for 30 days without having to synchronize it to your smartphone. A great way to collect and keep your data on-the-go!
The user must first pair the E-Strap to the MMT-365 app on his or her iOS or Android cellphone, by pressing the discreet pusher. The user can switch from Activity Tracking to Sleep Monitoring mode directly from the E-Strap by pressing the pusher three seconds. Activity Tracking mode is active when the LED light is orange. The E-Strap is then ready to start monitoring the steps, calories, active time and distance. To set up the Sleep Monitoring, the user must press the pusher during 3 seconds (a blue LED light will confirm the switch) and the E-Strap will start to monitor sleep patterns. The Frederique Constant E-Strap has a battery life of up to 7 days.
The Frederique Constant E-Strap is an advance piece of technology. The E-Strap is also an elegant buckle and strap crafted under demanding watchmaking codes. When worn, the buckle merges seemlessly with the strap and becomes an extension of the watch. The E-Strap buckle is available in stainless steel, rose gold-plated and yellow gold-plated steel. The package is complete with a special tool the user can use to fit the buckle into any other strap as long as the lugwidth measures 20mm or 22mm.
