The Breitling Exospace B55 connected chronograph houses an exclusive SuperQuartz movement endowed with a range of original functions tailor-made for pilots.
Breitling says that the watch stands out in terms of its new connection philosophy placing the smartphone in the service of the watch in order to enhance its functionality.
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 (time-setting, timezones, alarms, display and operating parameters, night mode).
The result is a considerable gain in comfort and efficiency. Conversely, the user can upload from the chronograph to the smartphone the results of various measurements (flight times, recorded times with split times, lap times, etc.) so as to be able to read them more easily, store them or pass them on. 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 (SMS, WhatsApp) or phone calls (with caller’s name or number) as well as reminders of upcoming appointments.
