Meet the Nowa Superbe, a smartwatch that never needs charging

You’d never guess that the Superbe was a hybrid smartwatch. With its incredibly fashion-forward aesthetic, the Superbe is a gorgeous looking wristwatch with a unique dial and a simple yet classy design that’s fitting of its Parisian roots… but the Superbe is more than just a gorgeous looking wristwatch. It’s a hybrid smartwatch too, with a world-clock, activity tracker, sleep tracker, Bluetooth controls, and probably its biggest feature, its ability to work without needing to be charged. This eclectic combination of a great aesthetic, along with remarkable tech-features is what makes the Nowa Superbe the best of both worlds.

At the heart of Superbe’s beautiful unisex design, is its square watch face. Ditching the straight lines, Superbe’s watch face is housed inside a bulbous square outline, giving it a bold character that looks great on male as well as female wrists. Backed with a Swiss Parts Quartz Ronda movement, the Superbe comes with a wide slew of smart features that sit under its innocuously mechanical exterior. The Superbe packs activity tracking, sleep tracking, a smart-trigger for your phone camera, Google Fit and Apple Health compatibility, a find-my-phone feature, automatic time zone adjustment, and by far my favorite feature… a battery life that can last as long as 2 years.

The haute smartwatch that never needs charging, the Superbe is powered by a CR2025 battery that lasts 8 months in ‘Smart Mode’, and 2 years if used as a regular timepiece. The watch comes with 3ATM of water resistance too, allowing it to be worn at the gym or in the rain, just like any good wristwatch. At less than 10mm thick, the Superbe is thinner than most smartwatches too, and comes with a mineral glass with sapphire coating. The Superbe comes in 6 color variants, between black and white faces that sport matte and metallic accents. With a style that’s definitely a contemporary classic, the Superbe also comes with the ability to sport an Italian leather band, or a Milanese metal mesh band. Designed to reflect a Parisian sense of style on the outside, and cutting-edge technology on the inside, the Superbe is a watch meant for both the style-savvy and the tech-savvy… and the fact that it doesn’t need to be charged is just music to everyone’s ears!
