Breitling, who has a solid place in the world of luxury watchmaking with its aviation inspired models and the true life saver device –Breitling Emergency, released its latest high tech connected watch: Breitling Professional Exospace B55 Connected
Instruments for Professionals. A single sentence can only be that explanatory. The aviation connection and the combination of design and technology are the true sources of that famous motto. The brand, which has created many high quality, reliable and useful timepieces for pilot and even for astronauts, turned a new page with the Professional Exospace B55 Connected model in terms of product range.
It’s a fact that the world of luxury watches are mostly rely on mechanical timepieces. However, for some brands, the digital models have a special importance. Those watches are built to be used for occasions which are mostly not suitable for their mechanical cousins. They are preferred by the ones who ask for specific features. Digital watch concept is clearly not a new one for Breitling as the brand has a great experience in that field as the creator of such a brilliant device called Breitling Emergency. There is no need to speak about the non-existing wearing comfort of that special timepiece however; it is a must-to-own piece if you are an adventure addict frequently being exposed to extreme conditions.
Breitling Professional Exospace B55 Connected combines the brand’s know-how about digital watches with today’s requirements and use this combination to impose the Breitling quality to an extended user profile. The titanium case measuring 46mm x 15,25mm feels un-expectedly comfortable on the wrist thanks to the titanium ( and the rubber strap too... ). The case also has a DLC option as well. Titanium and rubber combination managed to keep the overall weight of the watch less than 100gr. Especially after a heavy watch, strapping the Breitling Professional Exospace B55 Connected to your wrist feels like a relaxing breeze.
There are two sapphire crystals on both sides of the case with double AR coating. Double side AR coating provides an unmatched legibility under every possible occasion however, the nature of the coating is prior to scratches which may cause a beaten up look after years of use. The watch is water resistant to 100 meters.
Let’s get to the main thing. Breitling Professional Exospace B55 Connected is powered with the brand’s in-house SuperQuartz Caliber Ref.B55. The “super” part in SuperQuartz movement is about super-accurate timekeeping (± 0,07 per day precisely ) under every condition.
The dial features a pair of LCD displays which can be illuminated for night time visibility. The most important feature of the Exospace B55 is its ability to connect with Android or İos operated smart phones. So, what does this feature really give us..?
The timepiece can be adjusted with the winding crown and the pushers however, I am sure that Exospace B55 owners will definitely go for the application they have downloaded to their smart phones. The fun part starts as soon as you pair up your Exospace B55 with your smart phone. Settings for the hour, minute and second hand separately, UTC and local time, date, instant time adjustment for the destination’s time zone, chronograph and time counter, up to 7 different alarms for the same day and the notifications for calls/messages/emails are the features you can do with the application.
Exospace B55 features a rechargeable lithium-ion battery in order to manage those tasks efficiently. The battery, which is charged by plugging the cable included in the box set, lasts up to a month ( depending on the type of usage ). The power reserve can be displayed with the application. Since the watch warns you when the power reserve is less than a certain level so you are unlikely to be in a situation with a dead battery.
Exospace B55 is offered with a selection of three different rubber straps ( blue, gray and black ) and a titanium bracelet. The rubber straps are secured with a folding clasp.
Breitling Professional Exospace B55 Connected is perfect device which brings together the age of communication and precise watchmaking. We believe there will be more novelties from the brand with cutting edge technologies.
