The Swiss watchmaker Tag Heuer released a new model of branded smart watches, which history began in 2015. Unlike its predecessor, the new model called Connected Wear OS is more like a classic accessory than a high-tech gadget.
Compared to the previous model, the gadget has lost the ability to replace individual modules, but its 45-millimeter case, made of stainless steel and titanium, became thinner. Connected Wear OS has a 1.39-inch OLED display with a resolution of 454×454 pixels. The “heart” of the watch is the mobile platform Qualcomm Snapdragon 3100, replacing the Intel processors used in the two previous generations of devices. A built-in 430 mAh battery is responsible for the autonomy of the smart watch.
The new device is equipped with a set of sensors for monitoring various types of physical activity, including running, cycling and even golf. Using mobile application, data collected can be transferred to services such as Strava, Apple Health or Google Fit.
According to the manufacturer, Tag Heuer Connected Wear OS competes with Apple Watch and Fitbit Versa 2 in terms of number of features, although it wins in design due to its similarity to mechanical watches. It is noteworthy that gadget has no internet connection – the company believes that appropriate antennas would make the watch too thick.
New Connected Wear OS is already available on the manufacturer’s website with different variants of straps at a price from $1800 to $2350.
