What is a hybrid smartwatch?
A "hybrid-smartwatch" is a combination of analogue watches and smart watch features, which means no digital display, only pointers but with features such as step display and notification function. The classic beauty of the watches and the portable technology are combined in an accessory. A real highlight for all watch aficionados who do not want to miss the classic watch art, appreciate a long battery life and think that a watch shouldn’t replace the computer. In addition, a hybrid smartwatch is more subtle than the large Smartwatch model. Incoming messages are only perceived by the watch owner. And, of course, the display does not need to be activated to see the time.

If a message comes in, the watch carrier does not have to look directly at the mobile phone and interrupt a conversation because it can assess whether the call is important or not.
