Balancing Style with Tech: The Best Luxury Smartwatches of 2022

It’s no secret that many watch collectors openly detest the aesthetics and overall concept of smartwatches. While popular smartwatches like the Fitbit offer an expanding list of fitness tracking features, these digitised timepieces have generally strayed from traditional design codes in favour of practicality and function. However, a growing number of horologists are recognising the convenience and beauty that some of the latest high-tech timepieces are bringing to the table.

Balancing traditional and contemporary hallmarks of watch design with Bluetooth connectivity, fitness tracking and the like, today’s luxury smartwatches show you can get both functionality and aesthetics from a timepiece that can track your heart rate.

Housed in a chronograph style 42mm steel case, this classic-looking smartwatch comes with an H-shaped steel bracelet and features a round steel case that is water-resistant to 50 metres.

In terms of the technology, the Connected watch offers fitness tracking with guided seven-minute workouts, a heart rate monitor, wellness apps and Bluetooth connectivity. The steel-case Connected Calibre E4 is priced at A$2,900.
