TAG Heuer will make you #ConnectedToEternity as they finally launched their very own smartwatch, the TAG Heuer Connected. Are you excited?
The TAG Heuer Connected watch is the latest in a long line of inventions of TAG Heuer and is said to be the first connected watch developed by a Swiss luxury watchmaker, engineered with Intel Inside and powered by Android Wear™.
Wow! I’m really amazed how technology has evolved nowadays. Now with this kind of breakthrough in watches, you can really get connected anywhere and everywhere you go. Plus it adds up to your style. So fab!.
TAG Heuer worked closely with Intel and Google to create a luxury watch that combined connectivity and computing intelligence with Swiss watchmaking heritage. The watch features an Intel® Atom™ processor Z34XX and runs the Android Wear platform. Intel engineered the intelligence inside the watch to optimize performance and enable a multitude of connectivity options including audio streaming, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi as well as allow users to harness the full range of features offered by the Android Wear operating system.
That’s me trying out the TAG Heuer Connected watch during its launch in the Philippines. It costs around $1500 dollars or Php69,999 to be exact. Whoa! It really looked good on my wrist. But I immediately took it off for the risk and fear of damaging it. Wore it for picture purposes only. Hahaha.
At 46 mm in diameter, the design of the TAG Heuer Connected is primarily that of a true chronograph, with a case, back and lugs made from grade 2 titanium, a contemporary material ensuring the watch is lighter and more resistant to impacts than a traditional material such as steel or gold. Completed by a textured black rubber strap (six other colors – red, blue, white, orange, green and yellow – are available, sold separately) with a deploying buckle made of grade 2 titanium as well, it has all the elegance, characteristics and level of finish expected from a fine wristwatch.
Tag Heuer has developed three digital watch dials (known as watch faces), which feature the immediately recognizable design codes of TAG Heuer’s Carrera collection, including hands, index, counters, date window and minute track. The following are available: the chronograph dial, the 3-hand dial and the GMT dial, all of which display the date and are available in a choice of three colors (black, deep blue or pearl white), faithfully reproducing the appearance and functions of a true dial, with shadows under the hands and the beautiful sunburst effect of the light.
And because the TAG Heuer Connected is above all a watch, the digital hands and indexes remain visible at all times, even when the watch is in ambient energy-saving mode.
Other watch faces are available, so you can try one customized by TAG Heuer’s ambassadors.
TAG Heuer Connected is also compatible with iOS and is built on the latest release of Android Wear. What I like about this watch is that even if you don’t have your smartphone with you, it will continue to calculate, display, and exchange data, and as long as you have a Wi-Fi connection it will remain connected to the cloud(Android only).
Naturally, its resident applications (music, timer, alarm, step counter) remain active even when no connection is available. Android Wear opens the watch up to an almost infinite universe, an ecosystem that enriches itself night and day: thousands of Android applications are already available for the TAG Heuer Connected watch user to download. The key applications, currently used by millions, such as Google Fit, Google Translate, Google Maps and Google Search with your voice are already available on the watch, and show you information with just a glance. The watch can also be easily synced with a phone running either on Android 4.3+ or iOS 8.2+. It is charged using a contact charger. Simply place the watch on top to recharge it.
