The Story

Hyetis was founded by Arny Kapshitzer, a longtime Swiss watch designer who has designed such watches as the AK Geneve.  He initially conceived of the Hyetis Crossbow over one year ago and shopped the idea to other Swiss watch makers. When Kapspitzer got a fairly cool response from the Swiss watch community (a community that is typically slow to adopt new watch technologies despite being the long-time global leader in overall watch design and manufactuing), he decided to design his own smartwatch. And now we have the Crossbow.
