Using their app, the new B55 Connected timepiece can be quickly and easily adjusted by phone, everything from time-setting to timezones to operating parameters and alarms. The watch features a titanium case and the timepiece itself has a deep level of functionality including an electronic tachometer, countdown/countup system, dual LCD back-lit displays, and their new Caliber B55 that features a SuperQuartz movement that is 10x more accurate than standard quartz.
