Legendary watch company TAG Heuer has just released the TAG Heuer Connected, its first smart watch, and the first luxury watch powered by Google's Android Wear.




Connected lets you see weather, step count, or calories, as well check messages, utilize fitness coaching via Google Fit, and ask Google questions, on top of traditional watch features such as the alarm and stopwatch. Google notes all of this works even if you're an iPhone user. It comes in seven colours, including the classic all black.


Regarding specifications, the watch weighs a total 81gm and packs a 1.5in fully circular transflective LTPS LCD display (for easy viewing in sunlight), 360x360, 240ppi screen resolution, 1.6GHz dual-core processor (500mHz normal operation speed), and 1GB main memory (4GB storage memory). Further, it supports Bluetooth and claims a battery life of at least 25 hours for typical usage.


Connected is built and designed by watchmakers in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland and engineers at Intel and Google.


MSRP is $1,500.
