When the Swatch came out it was very much like 'a toy' as it replaced the mechanical movement, standard metal case, metal or black face, glass and leather strap. Swatch innovation was to do with fashion and cheaper production materials and an electronic movement with a battery. Since when they have failed to innovate in any functional sense. The new kid on the block has a fashion item with a different display and a lot more functionality. The bar has therefore been raised. Swatch now need to back up their words with actions.

Good for you Swatch! I'm glad someone told Tim Crook where to stick it......not like he doesn't know already, But Master. All of your comments are pointless, useless and uneducated. This is a company that's been making watches for decades and apple is a tech/data stealing company. Relovoutionany watch?, it's not even worth the metal it's made of. Go read a book! Do something useful with your lives!

When people say something bad about an innovation and just wait 2-3 years these watch manufacturers will also change the way they do their watches. Fossil is now embracing that change. If swatch is stuborn to jump in maybe they will loose their business the same as what happened to Nokia. I remember when phone manufacturers before say that the idea of a touch screen phone and apps will fail and few years later all phones look and behave like an iPhone.

"Interesting toy"? I've always said the same thing about Swatch watches.

So in his mind, what differentiates the Apple Watch and his Swatch smart watch is just the battery life. His claim is that Swatch's will last 9 months before needing a recharge. Let's see how accurate that is when it is available shall we? Let's see how useful the Swatch watch is when it comes out.

Your watch isn't revolutionary in any way compared to the Apple watch. Talk about jealousy, but who fcking cares what swatchstika thinks.

The classic signs of a worried company; dis the competition, dismiss a competing product yet claim to be working on something similar that will be "better". Sad.
