Hyetis calls the movement their caliber RDL-001, and it is the most important step along the way. Some of the challenges thus far include dealing with the various signals bouncing around the case (or outside of it), and of course, making everything fit. While the Hyetis Crossbow was to be in titanium, I believe, the Hyetis REDLINE will be in ceramic. That is clever, because I don't believe ceramic will have the same blocking effect on the signals and antennas in the same way that metal does.
The goal for Apple and its competitors in regard to fitness tech products is likely to develop a means of data acquisition and utilization which turn people's daily lives into a simple math game of "expend X effort to yield Y rewards." While years off, it is easy to imagine a future eventuality when devices track the calories we consume and the calories we expend, in order to make weight loss and staying healthy a matter of numbers versus instinct and feelings. The 1950s experienced the era of "better living through science," a then novel concept that has since evolved into today's Silicon Valley promoted mantra of "better living through data" (and the interpretation thereof).

2014 sees Bremont's turn, and with it, a new limited edition tin that features some design elements of Bremont watches, including rotors, hands, dials, bridges and other components. And while the design may not be for everyone's taste, it should perform well at bringing the arguably niche British watch brand and some of its trademark designs to a wider audience. However, things don't just stop there.
