Breitling has applied a new philosophy placing the smartphone in the service of the watch so as to enhance its functionality and user-friendliness while creating its first connected chronograph. The brand reaffirms its position in the vanguard of electronics with the Exospace B55.Performance is Breitling’s leitmotif in each of its technical advancements. It was also the core driver for the brand in developing its first connected chronograph. There was no question of turning a watch into an extension dependent on a smartphone yet less efficient than the latter. The chronograph remains the absolute master and the connection is primarily designed to improve its functionality.
Two-way communication enables the two instruments to form a perfectly complementary pair in which each is used for what it does best. Since the main assets of a smartphone are its screen and its ergonomic interface, owners of the Exospace B55 can use their phone to perform certain adjustments like time-setting, timezones, alarms, display and operating parameters, night mode.
The new connected watch system devised by Breitling thus facilitates the use of the chronograph functions, in keeping with the spirit of authentic instruments for professionals. An authentic life companion, the Exospace B55 multifunction electronic chronograph also receives notifications of the smartphone’s incoming emails, messages or phone calls as well as reminders of upcoming appointments.
The Exospace B55 features a sturdy and light titanium case equipped with a rotating bezel complete with rider tabs, and an exclusive TwinPro strap in two-tone rubber. This compendium of innovations houses an exclusive Caliber B55 with analog and digital display, equipped with a range of original functions tailor-made for pilots. The two ultra-legible LCD screens feature a backlighting system that may be activated merely by pressing the crown – or when the user tilts his wrist at a more than 35° angle (Tilt function) – that proves particularly effective when the hand is gripping aircraft controls or a steering wheel. Powered by a rechargeable battery system, the exclusive new multifunction Breitling Caliber B55, a SuperQuartzTM movement ten times more accurate than standard quartz, is chronometer-certified by the COSC.
