End of Life (EOL) - All good things must come to an end. Sadly, this product will not be re-stocked once depleted. So now is your last chance to get one. View our newest products.

Time. It's your most precious commodity. But in a world of ever-increasing digital distractions, how do you manage all those calls, tweets, texts, posts and emails? COGITO CLASSIC puts you back in control of your time. It's a connected watch for those who want to bring balance to home, work and social communications. It's a solution for those who believe life should be enjoyed, not interrupted.

COGITO CLASSIC brings together the power of a connected watch with the sophistication of a precision-crafted timepiece, merging classic analog movement with a lucid digital display. 
When linked with the smartphone or tablet app, COGITO CLASSIC allows you to cut through the digital noise by customizing settings based on your priorities and selecting which notifications will appear. On the watch face, you can see who is calling and decide whether to answer or mute it [with Android] . COGITO CLASSIC frees you from continually checking your phone.

Award-winning French designer Xavier Houy created COGITO CLASSIC as a watch that you would be proud to wear, one that naturally merges connectivity with a conventional timepiece. You can express your own style through a variety of elegant color choices and premium materials. 

No Recharge Required. Forget the bulky chargers and tangled power cords. The low-energy consumption of Bluetooth Smart technology allows COGITO to run on a conventional button-cell battery without requiring a recharge. The battery guarantees uninterrupted power for many months without a charge and, when necessary, you can easily replace it.
Water Resistance. COGITO CLASSIC is engineered to follow active users, especially in situations when the phone cannot be in your hands. With enhanced water resistance up to 10 ATM, the watch safely alerts you to calls and messages even in wet situations: under the shower, in the rain, on the beach and at the pool.

I have had my Cogito for some time, and I am extremely happy with it.
I am now aware of any Messages, Calls or Meetings without having to pick up my phone to check. If the caller is in your Phone Book, their name is shown on the watch, if not you will simply see a Phone symbol.
Meeting alerts have the first 30 characters of the meeting description displayed on the watch.
I also have my Cogito and Phone paired so when they are apart for more than 2 minutes (customisable), the watch vibrates and beeps discretely, alerting me that I have left my phone behind.
If I happen to misplace my phone, all I need do is press a button on the watch and the phone makes a noise like a cuckoo clock even if it is switched to silent !!
The best part of all of this, the Cogito looks and feels like a regular watch, but gives so many Smartwatch features.
This watch has none of the features of the fitness watches, so if that is what you are looking for this is not the watch for you.
I am happy with my purchase, as it provides me with all that I wanted.
