The Aviator Edition (above) will have a 24-hour GMT bezel, a lightweight titanium bracelet, and aviation-specific software tools such as emergency navigation and an HSI course needle. The watches will also have a set of smartwatch features like wireless payments, fitness tracking, email and text notifications, a heart rate and oxygen sensor, music streaming, GPS, and 12 days of battery life when in smartwatch mode.
