The world's first hybrid smartwatch with mechanical hands over a TFT color touchscreen, ZeTime blends the classic design of a traditional Swiss timepiece with the most advanced features of a smartwatch. MyKronoz’s proprietary ‘Smart Movement’ technology enables ZeTime’s always-on hands to function for up to 30 days with a single charge, ensuring the primary function of the watch – to tell time – is always running. The hybrid device is available in size Regular (44mm) and Petite (39mm) and is priced starting at $199.90, making it both aesthetically pleasing and affordable for all.

Being a true crossover wearable with no compromises, ZeTime is a demonstration of the MyKronoz company vision. “ZeTime has already made history thanks to the support of over 30,000 backers, becoming the most-funded hybrid smartwatch and the largest campaign ever from a European company. With this launch, we are not only reimagining the experience consumers have with technology. Most importantly, we are creating a new standard in both wearable and traditional watchmaking industries. This marks a turning point for our company, and shows our commitment to become tomorrow’s leader in this new generation of connected watches,” says Boris Brault, MyKronoz CEO.

With ZeTime, users can control their phone’s functions right from their wrist: view incoming calls, read social networking notifications, check weather forecasts, play music, take a photo, and more. The hybrid smartwatch is also equipped with a 3-axis accelerometer and optical heart-rate sensor to track activity by monitoring heart-rate, steps, distance, calories, active minutes and sleep. ZeTime will also alert users to extended periods of inactivity to encourage them to be more active. Additionally, the device is water resistant to 5 ATM.

Created to fit all styles, ZeTime’s elegant aesthetic features a sleek stainless steel watch case, sapphire glass, and a variety of interchangeable digital watch faces and bands including silicon, genuine leather, carbon-fiber and more. ZeTime seamlessly connects via Bluetooth with both Android and iOS phones (Android 5.0+ or iOS 8.0 and above).
