IWC vil også være med til at binde ure sammen med internettet. De har dog valgt en anden vej end de fleste andre. IWC Connect bliver en "dims", som skal sidde på urremmen. Oplysningerne er endnu meget sparsomme. Her er et par citater fra pressemeddelelsen. Leveringstidspunkt ikke oplyst endnu.

Mest interessant er måske udtalelsen fra George Kern: "...we do not touch our beautiful watches"

Schaffhausen, 5 May 2015 – Continuing the company’s long tradition of engineering innovation, Swiss luxury watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen is announcing the launch of a new device:IWC Connect.This intelligent tool, which will be embedded in the straps of mechanical timepieces from IWC, is designed to give wearers control over certain devices connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) and provide fully fledged activity tracking. The idea behind this new innovation is to enable owners of IWC timepieces to control their connected environment directly from the wrist while also maintaining the integrity of a handcrafted mechanical timepiece. 

Engineered to be integrated into the straps of IWC sports watches, beginning with the Big Pilot’s Watches, the IWC Connect answers the needs of discerning customers by providing a high-quality luxury design solution: it not only tracks the wearer’s activities, but also allows them to interact with connected devices in their environment (IoT). 
“Seeing that many of our customers and brand ambassadors are wearing connected devices alongside their IWC watches, we chose to work with a like-minded digital technologycompany to develop an elegant, aesthetically complementary solution that eliminates the need to have additional devices on the opposing wrist to your IWC,” explains Georges Kern, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen. “But, and this is essential, we do not touch our beautiful watches – an ‘IWC’ stays a mechanical handcrafted timepiece. We’ve engineered an intelligent design solution which perfectly integrates and underlines our product worlds.”

Georg Kern has done more to screw up a once great brands image than anyone with his publicity stunts.The sooner they get rid of this guy,the happier i will be.He is all that is bad about the watch buisness,tied up in a marketing nightmare.

Man tror jo nærmest det er en joke, når disse halvhjertede forsøg udfolder sig for åben skærm. Enten vil man gå hele vejen ellers lader man andre om den sag.

Jeg kan gå med til at man laver et mekanisk ur der leverer power til tidsvisningen og smelter noget smart glas ovenpå, som kan vise data, men at man hænger en dims på remmen eller laver data i remmen, det er Icon_head
Tankegangen minder meget om det Montblanc viste i Geneve på SIHH:

Det er simpelthen for dumt, deres kernekompetencer er ikke smartwatches eller ure til tidsvisning for den sags skyld.

Det er dårligt design at begynde at mokke sådan en klump på...
Nej nej neeeeej

Har i luret på at det er et 5002 (i hvertfald skivelayout) der er brugt som det officielle billede fra IWC?
What to make of this?
Tja Selv uret er da meget lækket. Men den rem vil  nok ryge i skraldespanden hvis det stå til mig Icon_smil

Godt spottet, men det er jo heller ikke en 5002, for power reserve dial'en er forkert.
