Smartwatches have been around for a few years now, but they are often treated as an luxury accessory, than a necessity. We have the likes of Samsung Gear smartwatches running on Tizen OS, Google WearOS smartwatches, and Apple Watch for iPhones to choose from. And then, there are Luxury watchmakers offering designer ‘smart’ versions of their watches. But all have one common problem – battery life. One company, Conzumex, aims to change that.
The company is launching its luxury hybrid smartwatch “Muse” which is smart, stylish and trendy at the same time. It’s basically an analogue smartwatch with 21 smart features. One of the highlights of the Muse hybrid smartwatch is its 1-year battery life on single charge. The glass is coated with sapphire crystal for scratch resistance and durability. The smartwatch is also 5ATM water resistant, and it comes with 2-year international warranty.
The Muse hybrid smartwatch comes with Sun UV (Ultra Violet) intensity tracking which will notify you when exposed to harmful UV rays. With MusePay feature, the smartwatch enabled NFC-based contactless payment across 38 million PoS terminals across the globe. It also features a notification dial to show notification icons.
