    While Apple is gearing up for their March 9th event and preparing to release their Apple Watch in April, other watch companies are trying to get theirs out before Apple gets to it. Swiss watchmakers are looking to compete with the Cupertino-based companyís most expensive version, the Apple Watch Edition. Swiss watchmakers Alpina and Frederique Constant have announced their version of smartwatches.

    It was noted by Bloomberg that the smartwatches from these two companies will be marketed as Horological Smartwatches and offer more fitness tracking, unlike the Apple Watch. The watches will be able to pair with smartphone apps but wonít have their own display. Frederique Constantís gold-plated model will cost $1295 while the lower end ones will be around $995.

    TAG Heuer is also expected to release their smartwatch even after the interim CEO, Jean-Claude Biver said that the idea of a smarwatch would be a flop. March 19th is the first day we will see some luxury swiss-made smartwatches. Would you buy these over the Apple Watch? Share your thoughts with us in the section below.

    These watches by these luxury brands are not so smart.
