If luxury is your thing when it comes to getting Android Wear, and you can deal with the high price tag, then consider the TAG Heuer Connected Watch. The company is said to bring “eternity” to connected watches. They have developed a partnership with Intel and Google as the 155-year-old Swiss watchmaker is now bringing in the big guns (in terms of luxury) in the wearable tech market.
The TAG Heuer Connected Watch is Unlike Any Other Smartwatch
At its core, the TAG Heuer Connected Watch is powered by Google’s Android Wear operating system. It is also the first to ever feature an Intel processor in a smartwatch. It is equipped with a 1.66GHz dual-core Intel Atom processor that has 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. This memory is double than what you can see in other Android Wear watches. However, it is still unclear if this will actually make a huge difference when it comes to real-world usage. After all, wearable tech does not need to have a large amount of storage. Other than the beefy specs for performance (for a smartwatch), there is also an accelerometer which can track your steps throughout the day, and has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity for some phone-less features.
When it comes to build quality, TAG Heueur did not spare any expense when creating The Connected Watch. It is made from grade 2 titanium, which gives it that premium look and feel. At the same time, however, it is considerably heavier than other smartwatches found in the market. In fact, it is bulky and that is probably just an understatement.
The premium smartwatch measures in at 12.8-millimeters thick and has a weight of 52-grams. The 46-millimeter display has a 360 x 360 pixel resolution, which is protected by a sapphire crystal. This makes it a whole lot difficult to scratch the surface of the watch. However, this “unscratchable” surface can also be seen in other Android Wear offerings in the market that have a more reasonable price tag, such as the Huawei Watch.
Those who are interested in getting this premium smartwatch should know that it is available in seven colors – green, orange, white, black, yellow, red, and blue. The strap’s clasp is also made with that same grade 2 titanium found on the main body of the watch.
The TAG Heuer Connected Watch also includes a variety of unique watch faces. There’s a few of them that will include “interactive counters,” as what the company calls them. These will consist of the three circles that will allow users quick access to important information with regards to apps and services.
