The TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 is not just a new smartwatch, but also a totally new concept from TAG Heuer. The watch will be able to host both digital and mechanical modules that attach to the watch’s lugs. Users will therefore be able to switch from wearing a smartwatch to a mechanical one seamlessly. Both modules will be the same size, 45mm, which is about 1mm smaller than the original Connected. The electronic module has received quite a few upgrades too. The watch is once again powered by an Intel Atom processor Z34XX series – Intel believes its compact form and energy efficiency is unmatched at this point – but this time it operates on Android Wear 2.0. That alone is a big deal, as we told you just yesterday… More at Hodinkee.
It’s easy to sneer at an expensive smart watch, but Tag is trying to cover all of the bases here; modern, traditional, practical, luxurious and customisable. An impressive effort.
Here is a very good review.
