Tag Heuer and Intel made a super expensive Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch

Tag Heuer and Intel made a super expensive Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch

Does the idea of a modular smartwatch interest you?

The good news is that the watch is available today, so if you've got the cash ready to go on a brand new watch, Tag Heuer might have something to sell you. Did I mention that the Connected Modular 45 also has interchangeable lugs, straps and buckles?

But the most interesting part of the Connected Modular 45 is what the company is calling a "time management experience", a smart software service for both the watch and a companion mobile app that dynamically adjusts reminders for scheduled meetings, calls, plans travel and other activities to fit around a changing schedule.

There's a high-definition AMOLED screen with sapphire crystal touchscreen for which you can select from a huge range of customisable dials. The watch is powered by an Intel Atom Z34XX processor and has 4GB of internal storage; battery life is expected to be between 24 and 30 hours per charge. It includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC but no LTE connectivity or heart rate sensor. Its first watch, the Connected, was priced at $1,800. The watch runs Android Wear 2.0 and features all of the specs you could want in a 2017 smartwatch, but it has an extra trick or two up its sleeve that allows the watch to become more than just a smartwatch. There are 11 main designs to choose from, and TAG Heuer says 45 additional combinations will be offered at boutique shops around the world. But if you're dropping $1,600 for an Android Wear 2.0 watch, you're probably not too concerned about that. It won't be available at launch but will eventually make its way to Tag and Oakley watches. Jerry Bautista, Vice President of Intel's New Technology Group said that the company's AI helper will be able to adapt to new situations and understand contextual questions, in addition to not having a gender or even a name. There is now no more information on it. We are thrilled to continue our strong collaboration with TAG Heuer.

Smart watches haven't really caught on, but that hasn't stopped Tag Heuer from doubling down and releasing a sequel to 2015's TAG Heuer Connected. It's predecessor is more costly, it cost around $1800 which is $150 more than the new version.
