TAG Heuer, the reputed timepiece maker made headlines last year by launching the most expensive Android Wear device. The TAG Heuer Connected Watch was priced at $1,500 and it seems that its next smartwatch will be priced similarly. The Swiss maker is, in fact, teasing its next Connected Modular 45 Watch and is set to announce it later today.
The TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 Watch is set to come with the latest Android Wear 2.0 on board. In fact, it will become the fourth smartwatch to launch with Android Wear 2.0 ever since Google first debuted this version of its smart wear software.
Incidentally, the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 Watch is currently listed on the company website. That said, TAG Heuer has listed the details of the smartwatch yet, and we would need to wait till the official announcement to get the complete specs sheet. Industry tipsters, however, have tipped a few details regarding the upcoming smartwatch.
As per the rumors, the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 watch will come with an AMOLED display and will have a 45mm watch face. Besides, it will be water resistant up to 50 meters, thereby enabling you to use it even when you go for a swim in the pool. Underneath, the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 watch will boast an Intel CPU and whopping 4GB of RAM. It will also come with a battery that will help it last through a day on a single charge.
The TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 watch will feature a 3-hand mechanical tourbillon. Tipsters further reveal that it will come with a Swiss Made certification.
It goes without saying that TAG Heuer will launch a number of bands to go with its smartwatch. The TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 smartwatch is revealed to sport changeable rubber straps that will come in a range of colors including black, blue, red, white, yellow, green, orange and electric blue. That aside, Calfskin and Rubber watchband combos will also be available in black, gray, light brown color. A limited edition Ceramic and Titanium watch band will be available too.
As for the pricing, the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 smartwatch will be priced at $1,650 (Rs 1,08,631 approx.) in the US. We would, however, need to wait till for the event to unfold before getting to know about the availability dates of the smartwatch.
