If you’ve ever been torn between the looks of an analogue watch and the functionality of a digital, then you’ll understand the thinking behind the Biformeter from new kids on the block Linde Werdelin. The brainchild of two watch gurus, Morten Linde and Jorn Werdelin, the Biformeter is two watches in one.
A striking, agressively angular analogue watch comes with a digital data instrument that slots over the top of the face and measures everything from the air temperature to your heart rate. You select the data most suited to your conditions. It’s aimed above all at the skiing market, and is designed to be robust enough for extreme conditions. It even alerts you to the danger of frostbite.
