Since the company’s inception in 1853, Tissot has consistently remained at the forefront of the evolution of horological mechanics and technology, from their pocket watches of the 1850s to the introduction of the world’s first touchscreen watch with the T-Touch in 1999. The French-named, Swiss outfit continues this tradition today, continuing to push the envelope of what’s possible in the watchmaking realm with the unveiling of the new T-Touch Connect Solar Smartwatch.

Paired with a metal bracelet or a red or black rubber band, the watch is built around a 47mm satin-finished titanium case with the option for a black or gold PVD coating and an engraved ceramic bezel. The biggest highlight, however, is the use of Photovoltaic cells that are embedded under the dial that afford the watch solar charging capabilities that, when combined with the T-Touch CS’s highly-energy-efficient components, allows it go as long as six months without needing to be plugged in. Water-resistant to 100m (or 328’), the T-Touch Connect Solar is also compatible with iOS, Android, Harmony, and Huawei mobile operating systems. The Tissot T-Touch Connect Solar Smartwatch is expected to be priced at around the $1,000 mark and is slated for a US release in early 2021.
