If your man shies away from typical smart arches available in the market, here is something that will not only look sassy, but will connect him to his smartphone all day long. Swiss watchmaker Tag Heuer has launches its own smartwatch, in collaboration with brand sports ambassadors Tom Brady, Jeremy Lin and Giancarlo Stanton.
TAG Heuer Connected Tom BradyThe 3 stars of the world of sports in the US & TAG Heuer Brand Ambassadors wanted to be involved in the adventure that is the “TAG Heuer Connected” watch and designed a watch face which is not only personalized and exclusive, but also contains cues to their individual sports universe. Tag Heuer has based the design on its Carrera collection of watches including details such as horizontal and vertical fine-brushed titanium lugs and 3D-raised and fine-brushed numerals. It’s made from grade 2 titanium, weighs 52g and has an IP67 splash-proof water resistance rating. The Connected Watch is Tag Heuer’s shot at making an Android Wear smartwatch. Like other Android Wear watches, it is compatible with devices running Android 4.3+ and iOS 8.2+.
Inside is an Intel Atom Z34XX 1.6GHz dual-core processor, the same as found in the Intel Edison development board. Other specs are similar to Android Wear rivals with 4GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM and a 410mAh battery. There is, of course, Bluetooth 4.1 LE connectivity but if you don’t want to connect it to a device there is Wi-Fi on-board too. At this price you might expect every gizmo going but the Connected Watch doesn’t have GPS or a heart rate monitor. Sensor-wise it features a gyroscope, tilt detection sensor, microphone and a haptic engine.
TAG Heuer Connected Jeremy LinThe first personalized original watch faces will be available as of January 20th through the TAG Heuer app on the Google Play Store. TAG Heuer will continue unveiling new ambassador-designed watch faces in the coming months on the “TAG Heuer Connected” website.
