As a “magazine dedicated to fine watches”, MONOCHROME doesn’t tend to cover connected modules, batteries and microchips. Still, we have to recognize the benefits of this technology when it comes to monitoring heart rate or other health/activity indicators. Today, we find out more about MMT Swiss Connected, Manufacture Modules Technologies, a company that creates Swiss-made connected modules, E-straps as well as innovative hybrid movements, where traditional mechanical watches are merged with modern smart technologies (for Frederique Constant, Alpina Watches and other manufacturers).

MMT Swiss is at the forefront of these technological developments and has managed to integrate mechanical movements with sophisticated electronics. This, for instance, led to the creation of the Frederique Constant Hybrid Manufacture, a watch that combines an in-house automatic movement and a connected module that can measure both the activity of the wearer and the running of the watch.
