Smartwatch adoption is steadily growing as manufacturers introduce new features and improve battery life. The number of functions, designs, and gimmicks are probably the biggest reasons why wearables slowly make their way into hearts. Yet, some of us remain steadfast and opt to go for the tried and true performance of analog watches. We have to realize that there just some conveniences that are included when using a smartwatch. The Longines Conquest V.H.P. GMT is a welcome and stylish compromise.

For example, as long as your device’s location services are active, adjusting the time zone is close to automatic. However, unless your regular wristwatch comes with a built-in time zone adjustment complication, you have to manually tweak it each time you travel. Longines understands that some individuals refuse to migrate over to wearables, so it came up with an innovative function to benefit its globe-trotting clientele. The advanced tech is integrated into the new Conquest V.H.P. GMT.

This elegant quartz movement timepiece keeps a special aperture on its dial that responds to the camera flash on your smartphone. Owners can download a companion app that triggers a sequence of flashes that instruct the wristwatch to make the necessary adjustments to match the location’s time zone. In essence, the Longines Conquest V.H.P. GMT is a contemporary timepiece that secretly uses some cutting-edge tech to make timekeeping during travel a breeze.
