There have been multiple talks on Apple and Samsung releasing smartwatches. It wouldn't be a surprise if the Swiss decided to get it on this competition. After all, they are most famous for their timepieces. Rolex? Patek Phillipe? Omega? The Swiss not only rolled out the watch info, but it has already started pre-selling and will ship on December 2013.

I hope there will be a new James Bond movie so they can feature this watch that I'm about to rant on now. I can imagine Mr. Bond in his signature pose as he says, "Shaken, not stirred." Can you imagine his smug look? This time, you'll be imagining the new Hyetis Crossbow just poking out of his suit, sitting comfortably in his wrist.. Not just any watch, a spy watch.

Design

The glass is a tactile sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment, that comes with a HD LCD Dial. Did I mention that this is touchscreen? Yes. It is. Get over it. There's even so much more to that. Just read on.

1. Case and back in grade 5 Titanium, finish “Dark Knight” Polished, Blasted and Brushed.
2. Waterproof to 250m.
3. 2 Textile Bands “NATO” type interchangeable Red and Black
4. Touch Bezel mirror polished
5. Sensors protection made of ceramics and composites
6. Crown with rubber grip and red ring

Here's what it looks like and to be honest, it looks comfortable. The slight tilt gives you a better view and it also accommodates the camera that way. I'm getting way ahead of myself now.
