During the Longines Grosser Preis von Berlin, Longines had the pleasure to present its new second screen application, which is using the Longines Positioning System. It provides a live experience of horse races and real-time accuracy, as it produces detailed statistics about horses, such as average speed or intermediate time to tablet users.
This new application also allows the users to see the races on replay, providing additional data, essential to a younger audience, used to receive information anytime and anywhere. During the Longines Grosser Preis von Berlin day, Longines gave the opportunity to horse racing enthusiasts to discover and test the application in a dedicated area.
