 Hewlett Packard to launch designer smartwatch
New Delhi: Hewlett Packard has teamed up with designer Michael Bastian to launch a smartwatch - MB Chronowing - that looks like a traditional wrist watch.

The MB Chronowing smartwatch will be available exclusively via Gilt from November 7, at $349 for a silver-plated model.

A limited-edition variant of the MB Chronowing in black with sapphire glass and an alligator strap will be available for $649. Only 300 units of the limited-edition smartwatch variant will be available.

The smartwatch supports both the iPhone and Android devices for wireless pairing.

Unlike other smartwatches, this one does not feature a touch screen, doesn't track steps or heart rate and doesn't sport a microphone.

MB Chronowing supports features such as three navigation buttons, and ten separate menus, including those that display stock trends, sports scores, and different types of mobile notifications

The user can also use the Chronowing to play music back on their phone.
