Developed in partnership with Apple competitors Google and Intel, the digital version of the Replica TAG Heuer Carrera reportedly will retail for about $1,400 and will be a digital version of one of TAG Heuer's best-selling models, the black Carrera.
Connected, developed with Google and Intel, is built on the latest release of Android Wear, a version of Google's Android operating system designed for smart watches and other wearable, and has up to 4,000 accessible applications on the Google Play store. It is equipped with a built-in stopwatch, timer and alarm, and features other functions as well, among them directional wind and weather monitoring, RaceChrono pro capability and Google Fit.The smart watch also is iOS compatible, meaning it can run with the operating system used for mobile devices manufactured by Apple, such as the iPhone.
TAG Heuer said other timepiece faces will be made available, including one customized by the brand's ambassadors that consumers can access on the TAG Heuer app on the Google Play Store. If wearers do not have their mobile device with them, the Connected will continue to calculate, display and exchange data. These colored bands are accessible in stores merely; the black strap is all that can be purchased online.
"Together with TAG Heuer replica and Google we innovated a dazzling, intelligent and functional product that harmonizes the latest computing innovation with more than a century of watchmaking experience, timeless aesthetics and supreme quality," said Brian Krzanich, CEO of Intel Corp. The Connected has the look of a traditional chronograph watch, and has a titanium case, back, buckle and lugs, which makes it lighter and more resistant to impact than a steel or gold watch, replica TAG Heuer said. The battery life is 25 hours based on typical usage, the brand said. The timepiece also is equipped with audio streaming, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, as well as a small microphone for wearers to communicate with via Google voice control. "TAG Heuer's will look like TAG Heuer replica watches. TAG Heuer will have the DNA of TAG Heuer."
In addition, anyone who purchases a Connected will, at the end of the watch's two-year guarantee period, have the opportunity to pay an additional $1,500 and exchange it for a mechanical Carrera watch. It has a black rubber strap; nevertheless, customers also can choose from blue, red, white, yellow, green or orange rubber bands, sold separately.
