Most smartwatches look more like gadgets than fashion accessories, but Nevo joins the ranks of classy, stylish timepieces that also pack smart skills.
It syncs to your phone over Bluetooth, and vibrates when you have an incoming call or text message. You can’t read said alerts on the watch, however. But seeing as most of the smartwatches with this functionality do it badly, that’s no great loss.
You can also set the watch to vibrate as an alarm or a reminder.
It takes two watch batteries – one powers the time keeping, and lasts for around five years, the other powers the smart features, and lasts for about six months. Just swap them when they die, which means no charging, ever. Which is refreshing when most smartwatches need juicing up daily.
It’s initially available in three colour schemes named Paris, New York and Shanghai. It comes with an Italian leather strap and a rubber one for exercising.
Throw in Swiss movement, and you’ve got one of the more desirable smartwatches we’ve seen. It’s already passed its funding goal on Indiegogo, and should start shipping in March.
