As an amateur triathlete, I have been using Garmin watches for the past 10 years now, and the latest model I had a chance to test is the Garmin Fenix 2. My addiction to the sport reached a new high last year, when I completed my first full Ironman, that's 2.4 miles swimming, 112 miles cycling, followed by 26.2 miles running (a full marathon).

So what is that line, and where do I think we should draw it? It seems obvious that smart watches and other wearable technologies are the future. I don't believe that a smart watch is a direct replacement for a mechanical wristwatch, because they perform different functions (one is for the display and processing of information; the other is an item of personality). Regrettably, though, they occupy the same territory, so you can only wear one at a time.
This is a custom, specific, proprietary movement developed to break records. It is, in this sense, a work of art and engineering in harmony. You could find plenty of examples of major brands that charge just as much for a bog-standard ETA, cleverly hidden in or disguised by a glitzy case. The Piaget Altiplano Chronograph is no pretender; it is classy to its core. The eagle-eyed might notice that the case is actually larger than it needs to be – the Calibre 883P could easily fit in a case under 40mm diameter, but Piaget have chosen to give the Piaget Altiplano Chronograph a bit more width to satisfy modern tastes.
