The overlying theme of the watch still marries up with the brand’s heritage of global travel kit - with the watch updating its we’re of flight delays, gate information, and, on the ground, local tourist spots - while its in-house software allows it to connect and work with both iOS and Android smartphones via Bluetooth.
