Swatch Touch Watches

Swatch Touch Watches Watch Releases

The T-Touch technology from Tissot watches (developed for them by ETA which, like Tissot, is Swatch Group owned) is finally making its way down-market to Swatch. This will debut in a new collection of watches called the Swatch Touch. These fun digital timepieces will come in a host of colors and have no pushers/button. Rather, all the functions of the watch will be activated via touching zones on the dial.

The digital dials on the colored plastic cases are LCD displays in various colors. The numerals have a unique rounded styles to them that you’ll love or hate. The cases are a bit barrel-shaped and integrate with the straps. I am not sure about the size of the watch but they shouldn’t be too small. Price for the Swatch Touch watch will be $149.00. More details from Swatch:

“Swatch Touch 2011 models give touch-screen access to six digital functions: time (2 zones, t1 & t2), date, chrono, alarm, timer and beep. Users sweep through the functions with ease using finger-taps and sideways scrolls—no pushbuttons—and can activate the screen’s built-in backlight to assure readability under all conditions. Revealing Swiss-made quality throughout, Swatch Touch’s 2011 curved plastic glass display and coloured LCD present Arabic numerals in a big, stylish font designed to fit the shape of the watch. Ergonomic in every detail, the smooth integration of the watch head and strap makes Swatch Touch 2011 a real pleasure to wear.”

    for 149$ this is something I would buy for kicks

  • It somewhat dilutes the while appeal of the Tissot range?? Much like when they released the ETA C01.211… should’ve kept it with one brand or the other, not both.

    Although the same technology this is obviously using a new calibre of movement, judging by the digital display and lack of pushers.

    Good price though!

    “beep” is a function? Ok…

  • Martin

    Good move by swatch

  • John

    Wow, I know what my family is getting for Christmas.

  • Ulysses

    Represents decent value for money, considering what it can do. I guess I am the only one who finds these numerals hard to read, but overall they look like nice watches. I predict it would be a big hit with the young female market, especially with those curly, feminine-looking digits.

  • Eric

    You aren’t the only one Ulysses – I would have got this as a Xmas present for someone, but I am afraid that the font they used is to hard to read. Wish you could change the font for the watch – that would be a cool “function”.

    have you ever contacted Tissot in Switzerland regarding customer service? I have a problem and the stateside customer service is not really a good representative so far….

  • AlexisEstenor

    Had problem with this watch. The touchscreen function most of the time isnt working and i have it already change with the same watch of different color and to my dismay it really have a problem with it.

    • Radiopirat

      @AlexisEstenor: Touchscreen will only work if you contact (have skin-contact) the Battery-compartment (at reas side) at the same time you touch the Display (as mentioned in the manual). Try it!

  • Disadvantages include the need to press down, and a risk of damage by sharp objects. Resistive touchscreens also suffer from poorer contrast, due to having additional reflections from the extra layer of material placed over the screen
