Swatch Sunzero

Swatch working on Swiss OS smartwatch

Swatch has chosen to develop its own operating system as part of a smartwatch development programme. The company, which has long been linked with an entry into the smartwatch market, has chosen to eschew the likes of Android Wear and Tizen in order to develop its own platform.

The forthcoming offering from Swatch has been provisionally labelled Swiss OS and is being worked on alongside the non-profit Swiss research institution CSEM.

Given the organisations behind Swiss OS, it is not surprising that data security will play a key role in the platform.
