Several of strap colors (black, red, blue, white, orange, green, yellow), all sports perforation (hole), and deployment buckle closure made two titanium. This is a good start, but taking into account the market with a plethora of Apple’s watch, we believe more strap to choose from are working. Although I doubt we will see a Hermes articles] – a Louis Vuitton Editon is meaningful.

From sports updates, weather alerts, airport information – to your standard assortment of timers, alarms, and reminders – it is comparable with other top smartwatches.
In addition to some pretty neat looking TAG Heuer’s Carrera digital watch faces, which include chronographs, GMTs and 3-handers (pictured and shown in this video) – there are already a number of customized apps that will be available on the Connected Watch on on exclusive basis that will be offered with free subscriptions, including: Insiders (lifestyle), GolfShot Pro (golf), RaceChrono Pro (motor racing), and Viewrangers (trailing), which will be offered with free subscriptions.
The watch is equipped with an Intel® Atom™ processor Z34XX, 4 GB of memory, 1 GB of RAM, and has an approximate battery life of 18-20 hours of battery life thanks to its latest-generation lithium battery. The TAG Heuer Connected is equipped with a small microphone to communicate with via Google voice control. It can also be controlled by the electronic crown or sapphire crystal touchscreen (which protects a 24-bit display that has 360 x 360 pixels with 240 ppi resolution and 200 nits of brightness). Crucially, thanks to the onboard memory, and unlike the Apple Watch, you can load and listen to music, even if WiFi and your phone are unavailable.
The entire piece has an IPX7 water resistance rating, which means it can get wet, or be submerged in a shallow amount of water (about 3 feet) for approximately 30-minutes. Sadly, the water-resistance rating is no better than the Apple Watch. As a Swiss watchmaker, highly focused on sports watches, we would have expected at least 30 meters so you can swim with it, take it to the beach, and so on. On a positive note, it definitely feels more robust than an Apple Watch, as it should coming from TAG Heuer.
Overall, based on a first look, which included about 20-minutes with the TAG Heuer Connected, it appears to be a well put together device, with the quality (fit and finish) you would expect from a Swiss watchmaker like TAG Heuer. The retail price is $1500.
