You get TAG Heuer’s latest
Smartwatch named Connected that is about to blow your wallet and mind
If Smartwatches are anything but fancy
and luxurious, this would definitely take the cake. TAG Heuer has just released
the world’s first Smartwatch from a Swiss luxury watchmaker recently in New
York City, United States.
TAG Heuer’s first Smartwatch is powered
by an Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor, 4GB of memory and runs on the Android Wear platform.
Unlike most other Smartwatches, the Connected does not have any tech-fancy
heartrate monitors or an in-built camera control function here.
Connected measures 46mm in diameter, is
12.8mm thick and weighs 52g which is a little heavier as compared to the Samsung
Gear S2 or even the Apple Watch. Its weight could be attributed to its body built
with titanium and sapphire – all luxury watches whether an IWC, Rolex or in
this case TAG Heuer have a certain weight and feel about them.
It has IP67 splash-proof water
resistance rating, which is great when you get caught in the rain. However,
this would also mean swimming or surfing with this beauty is definitely off the
list. The TAG Heuer Connected charges wirelessly, a battery life that can last
for a minimum of 25 hours (410mAh) and is compatible with Android 4.3 or above
and iOS 8.2.
With technology aging faster than ever, the
Connected Smartwatch has a neat exchange arrangement. After the Connected’s
warranty expires, you have the option to top up another US$1,500 (SG$2125) and
exchange the Connected for a mechanical Swiss Made Carrera watch which would be
similar in design and made only for this exchange arrangement.
TAG Heuer Connected has an option for seven
different strap colours (black, red, blue, white, orange, green and yellow) and
now available at authorized TAG Heuer stores. The Connected will retail at
US$1,500 (SG$2125) with a two-year standard TAG Heuer warranty.
