Basel, Switzerland -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/26/2015 -- CONNECTEDEVICE Ltd, the world-leading maker of no charge fashionable connected watches, will disclose its full COGITO range at BASELWORLD from March 19th to 26th, 2015 (Hall 2.0, Booth K27).
The new COGITO FIT brings customizable fashion to the smartwatch world thanks to its interchangeable plug-in concept. COGITO CLASSIC offers the power of a connected watch with the sophistication of a precision-crafted timepiece.
COGITO FIT: Fashion, Fitness, Freedom on the wrist.
COGITO FIT blends 6 vibrant colors and trendy design with smart notifications from the smartphone and inbuilt fitness monitoring features. Created for maximum mainstream appeal, COGITO combines fun and functionality to make the smartwatch more accessible to a larger public and a more natural experience for the user. LED icons on the watch face alert users when they have a call, an email or a message on social media sites. The easy-to-use interface lets users manage not just calls, but also remotely trigger their camera, control their music and locate their phone.
FASHION. COGITO FIT introduces a new fashion concept to the COGITO brand. Changeable plug-ins on the watch bezel bring a new level of personalization, allowing users to transform the look to fit their mood, wardrobe and environment.
FITNESS. The activity feature is designed for everyday usage, like the watch itself. Different from step-centric Fitness Trackers, COGITO FIT takes a holistic approach to monitoring overall activity levels, providing valuable insights into the user's lifestyle. The activity monitor continues with or without the phone in your hands, and it does not require a recharge.
FREEDOM. Unlike other smartwatches, COGITO FIT never needs to be charged. The button-cell battery provides uninterrupted power for months (depending on usage) without requiring an external charge. With the addition of the activity feature, COGITO FIT continues to offer the full benefit of long-life, no-charge battery.
COGITO CLASSIC: the elegant connected watch
Designed in France by award-winner designer Xavier Houy, COGITO CLASSIC appeals to the busy, social and fashionable crowd, COGITO CLASSIC merges classic analog movement with a digital display. When linked with the smartphone, COGITO CLASSIC allows users to cut through the digital noise by customizing settings based on their priorities and selecting which notifications will appear. On the watch face, users can see who is calling or messaging, and decide whether to answer or mute it. COGITO CLASSIC frees users from continually checking their phones.
Unlike other smartwatches, which are primarily electronic gadgets, CONNECTEDEVICE effortlessly balances smart technological innovations with the fine craftsmanship expected in a premium timepiece. Fashion-forward design, precise Japanese quartz movement, high-end finishing and materials are all hallmarks of the COGITO brand. The company aims to make the smartwatch more accessible to a larger public and a more natural experience for the user.
Henri-Nicolas OLIVIER, CEO of CONNECTEDEVICE, says: "We don't believe it's necessary to compromise craftsmanship for connectivity. Both Style and Smarts are equally important in our connected watches. It's a core value in our design philosophy."
COGITO CLASSIC, POP & the new FIT are engineered to follow active users, especially in situations when the phone cannot be in their hands. With enhanced water resistance up to 10 ATM (100M), the watches safely alert users to calls and messages even in wet situations - in the rain, on the beach and at the pool.
The CONNECTED WATCH App is available on the App store and Google Play store. It is compatible with iOS 7 and iOS 8, as well as most Android 4.3 and upward enabled devices, including iPhone 4S, 5, 5C and 5S, 6, 6 Plus, and Samsung Galaxy Series, Nexus 4,5, HTC One, and more. (visit our website for the full compatibility list).
The company is seeking distributors worldwide for its new connected watch collections and also offer its technologies on OEM basis for watch makers willing to connect.
