The watch manufacturer Swatch Group and the micro- and nanotechnology R&D centre CSEM, both based in Switzerland, are working on the development of a unique Swiss-made ecosystem. It will be designed especially for the needs of small connected objects (Internet of Things) and, naturally, first and foremost for watches. This platform will be built around a tailor-made operating system that is completely new.
