Best Swiss Smartwatches of 2020: The Ultimate List

Best Swiss Smartwatches Published: | Updated:

Style and practicality have always been components of Swiss design. In the world of jewelry and timepieces, Swiss creations have often acted as status symbols for the rich and fashion-conscious.

Though Swiss watches have always been regarded as a sumptuous fashion icon, many popular brands are trying their hand at the modern revolution, and getting involved with time-pieces from a more tech-heavy perspective. Since smartwatches have become more than just gadgets to many people – and indeed represent fashion statements to the masses – it only makes sense that Swiss smartwatches would be appeasing those in search of a functional, yet attractive device. If you’re looking for something a little classier than your average Apple or Samsung Smartwatches – you’ve come to the right place.

Here, we’re going to look at five of the biggest contenders for Swiss smartwatch fame this year.

If luxury is your goal, then you’ll love the Frederique Constant Horological smartwatch – designed to offer an elegant look with a waterproof design, it’s practical and classy at the same time. The watch features a “second-time zone” mode, alongside various other software tweaks, and you can even choose a rose gold-plated case for that extra touch of beauty.

It's made with a tough sapphire quartz crystal that it makes it resistant to scratches

The Montblanc Summit 2 smartwatch is one of the most elegant looking ones in the market right now. Even though it looks like a regular Swiss-made watch, this 42mm timepiece sets itself apart with what’s under the hood. The watch face is made with a tough sapphire quartz crystal that is very scratch resistant. The case back is made with a combination of glass and fiberglass resin, and the crown is a stainless steel case. It runs on Wear OS by Google so it comes with NFC payments as well.

With this beautiful smartwatch, this is what you will be getting:

  • Heart Rate monitor and motion sensor
  • NFC contactless payments
  • GPS tracking functionality
  • Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity for your everyday notifications and music needs

If we had to nitpick, the only downside we can see is that it does not have sleep monitoring features. Otherwise, it’s a beautiful watch that has a pretty decent battery life and is stylish for every occasion. Our favorite design for the Montblanc Summit 2 is definitely the Orologio variant.

The luxurious of this smartwatch goes to an extreme. LCD and analog screens.

Last but not least, we have the Breitling Exospace B55 smartwatch. This luxurious smartwatch is extremely pricey but is one of our favorite Swiss-made smartwatches. Originally meant for pilots and sailors, this smartwatch by Breitling boasts a mechanical dial with two more separate digital displays that act individually. The analog hands display the time like a normal watch, while the two LCD displays can be used for a plethora of functions like stopwatch, calendars, and battery level – just to name a few.

When you get the Breitling Exospace B55, you will enjoy the following benefits:

  • A whopping 10 years battery life (which is absolutely crazy)
  • 7 daily alarms for every day, perfect for frequent travelers and pilots.
  • Mission elapsed time for your James Bond activities
  • A stopwatch accurate to 1/100th of a second.

The watch face is 46mm, which is bulkier than most – makes it suitable for men. You can also connect the watch to your phone via Bluetooth to a companion smartphone app for iOS and Android”. For pilots, you will have the option to load in flight departure and arrival times. For sailors, there is a feature for entering yacht regatta times. This makes it a very profession-specific smartwatch that really makes your life easier on the job.

  1. It’s obvious that swiss watches are way more expensive than their japanese counterparts. Whether you’re buying a swiss smart watch or a regular wrist watch, it’ll come with some major horology, right? Do you think this warrants such a hefty price tag??

    1. Theodore, thanks for asking. That’s a really good point because when buying a swiss watch you normally know they have been the rulers for ages, but, in fact, there is nothing that proves the Japanese counterparts are worse. It’s just the fact that Swiss technology has been there for a while and succeeded in its stylish but also rugged and durable watches. In the end, I believe, it’s more about how long is your budget and how much you care about the features of the watch you are looking for. Hope it has helped.
      Cheers!
