Tissot has updated its T-Touch line of watches, dating back to 1999, with the new Connect Solar model, a connected tactile timepiece for the modern sportsman.
The first multi-function tactile watch in history, the Swiss-made timepiece promises to be connected, securely private, interactive, autonomous, contemporary and long-lasting.
Tissot says that while it has created a connected watch with a multitude of functions, including solar charging, it is first and foremost a watch for experiencing and wearing, and with a sophisticated yet durable design.
Its 47-mm titanium case comes with an extremely scratch-resistant ceramic bezel is ergonomic, and promises water resistance to 100m.
It is being launched in several versions with rubber straps or titanium bracelets, and a case in satin-finished titanium, black PVD or rose gold PVD.
The T-Touch Connect Solar has the basic functions of a T-Touch Solar Expert, such as a perpetual calendar, countdown, various timekeeping functions and alarms, and meteo and altimeter functions.
Added to these are an activity tracker and the opportunities afforded by interaction between the Sw-ALPS operating system, developed specifically for this project, and a smartphone, namely app notifications and updates.
Due to its solar power technology the T-Touch Connect Solar is able to keep running almost indefinitely in connected mode, and for several months depending on its usage and exposure to the sun.
