The First Hybrid Mechanical Smartwatch | KAIROS Baselworld 2015
Kairos (καιρός) is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment (the supreme moment)
Kairos Watches is the world’s first and only mechanical smart watch hybrid.
It combines the centuries old traditional watch making heritage with the latest in 21st century wearable technology. Each product from Kairos consists of a fully automatic movement (Miyota 82S7 Japanese Movement for MSW115 and Soprod A10BV-2 Swiss Movement for SSW158) which is infused with a revolutionary new display called TOLED (Transparent Organic Light Emitting Diode) display. It is powered by an 180mAh battery which also powers the on board control unit with Bluetooth that communicates with a companion device (smart phone / tablet). The operating system includes a choice of Kairos OS – which provides the most essential features and functions while conserving battery (5-7 days), or Android Wear OS which provides more app-related functions but with less battery power (2 days).
The mechanical movements are rated 42 Hour Power Reserve for both models. The watch itself is rated 3ATM for water resistance.
Branded as the world’s first mechanical-smartwatch hybrid, the Kairos is unlike anything we’ve ever seen in timepieces. Featuring, self-winding watch movements and a transparent OLED display, the watch blends both tech and fashion…
The Kairos smartwatch is a fully-functioning mechanical watch that features a secondary see-through screen within the same casing. The transparent TOLED display delivers notifications and other data, while still allowing you to see the watch hands beneath when nothing else is happening.
It will work with iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices and an accompanying app will push the notifications to your wrist, while also offering camera functions and music playback. Activity and sleep tracking is powered by Misfit and the battery is claimed to last between two and three days.
