Say what you will about the new Apple Watch, the world's best timepiece makers continue to tick forward with big advances of their own. Breitling's latest entrant is the B55 Connected Watch, which connects via Bluetooth to your smartphone to unlock even more features and precision to the Swiss watch maker's resume. The B55 is the natural evolution of the B50, powered by a proprietary Superquartz movement exclusive to Breitling that features a rechargeable battery, automatic back-light sensors, and a host of standards like a perpetual calendar, 1/100 of a second chronograph, time zones, and an electronic tachometer. So what makes the B50 a B55? Well, it's the accompanying app, which serves as a bit of a remote control for the watch, allowing you to quickly update the time, calendar, alarms, timezone, and other measurement features without having to fiddle with the dial, ultimately easing the learning curve to an otherwise complicated watch. That isn't to say you wouldn't want to fiddle with a design as beautiful as this: a 46mm wide black-coated titanium case, a matching black dial with a blue "connected" symbol, and a complementary band. The end result is a watch that is packed with the usual Breitling masculinity and some of the industry's latest tech. What else could you need? No word on price yet, but it should at least hit the B50's $8,000+.
