The Voyage is similar to the Withings Activité and Activité Pop in that it looks like a stylish fashion accessory. The watch dial is inspired by pilot and aviator watches. The 43mm watch case is made from marine grade stainless steel with PVD coating and comes in matte and polished finishes, and is water-resistant up to 98 feet. It’ll be sold with a variety of stitched leather bands.  The Boldr Voyage is billed as a “clever watch,” not a smartwatch according to Worn and Wound. It’s a Quartz watch first and foremost, but with just enough smarts to tell you something is happening on your phone. It’s also got a 6-month battery that lasts longer than most smartwatches, which generally need to be recharged every night or even every week.  Notifications are pushed from your phone and alert you through the LEDs or vibrations. You can think of the watch’s notifications as nudges that something is happening on your phone. Unlike an Apple Watch or an Android Wear-based smartwatch, you won’t be able to respond to messages, check email or make calls; you’ll need to use your phone to do so.
