Form, Meet Function: Introducing the New Breitling Exospace B55 Connected

by Kiley Schiffman Storrs

The Breitling Exospace sounds like a thing of the future. And why shouldn’t it? While it has hints of a vintage pilot’s watch, it offers a modern twist with its smartwatch technology. It’s the perfect watch for anyone looking for precision and quality.

The Breitling name is synonymous with aviation technology. As a leader in pilot’s watches, the Breitling Exospace B55 Connected is a beautifully crafted timepiece, built with the premier excellence for which the Swiss watchmaker is known. Whether you’re a pilot or not, this watch has a sleek yet sporty aesthetic anyone can appreciate. It’s powered by Breitling’s SuperQuartz movements and as a COSC-certified watch, you can trust its accuracy down to the seconds. It features a blue rubber strap that is cut to length, as well as a pushbutton deployant clasp with ratcheting micro-adjustment.

Such features as multiple alarms, night vision-compatible displays, and a built-in emergency radio transmitter make it a highly functional piece. Like similar “ana-digi” watches, it combines traditional three-hand time-telling with digital displays that can be synchronized to the second. With a quick double push of the crown, its hands will park at 9 and 3 for easier readoff of the digital display. It is also water-resistant up to 100 meters and thermocompensated to account for rapid changes in temperature.

Advanced features make it a pilot’s favorite tool. With dual-time zone tracking, you can set and track both Universal Time Coordinated and the local time for flight communications. The digital display can be set and automatically activated for night vision compatibility. Chrono Flight and tachymeter functions also allow you to track and record times with ease.  

What makes it so groundbreaking as a B55 Connected is the innovative activity tracker that is custom-built for Breitling watches. The intuitive B55 app, useable on Apple and Android smartphones, displays your watch’s battery life, Bluetooth status, and time zones. Your watch helps you streamline your life: view flight times, find timer and chronograph records, set alarms, check notifications, set backlight tilt and length, and more. And because it’s connected by Bluetooth, you can also choose to take calls and get calendar and text notifications for true ease of use.

Despite the power packed into this watch, the Breitling Exospace B55 Connected can last up to two months on a single charge, all depending upon the features you use. Simply recharge by connecting the watch to a wall outlet or USB port.

The Breitling Exospace is a well-made watch for the pilots of yesterday, but smartly designed for the most modern of lifestyles.
