What is more interesting is that the Tweet included a picture, which is supposedly the first looks of the upcoming Smartwatch. While, the look of the watch is not clear as it is hidden in the shadows it is known that it will be called ‘Connected’. The tweet says, ‘next step in innovation’ – #connectedtoeternity’. If this piece of information hasn’t got you excited already, then here is some more interesting fact about the watch that we bet would make become a jumping jack. Tag Heuer has confirmed that it is building the ‘Connected’ watch in partnership with Intel and Google. (We don’t know about you) but we at Compareraja are absolutely sure that the combination of the three of the biggest names in the tech world would surely lead to a ‘Masterpiece’ creation.
A description about the watch on the Tag Heuer’s teaser site hints that with this new watch, Tag Heuer is keen to push its already well-established image of being the Avante Grade watchmakers in the world; the company aims to keep the tradition in tact yet bring about a ground breaking technological innovation. The Watch is all set to be the epitome of ‘Style Meets Technology’. The CEO of Tag Heuer, Jean Claude Biver has already announced last month to CNBC that the watch is coming in November, the clock is ticking for Tag Heuer and we all are hoping that that the brand delivers on its promise and gives to the world a Smartwatch that sets a benchmark in the industry.
With the announcement made public now, the tech world is already rife with various speculations and predictions about the specs of the watch. We are all well versed with the specs but one speculation that has been doing the rounds quite a bit has caught our attention and we couldn’t help mention that. It says the Tag Heuer watch will make the Apple Watch go Obsolete, Woah! You would agree that is certainly a very very very bold statement!! Given the reputation of Apple and its technological supremacy, it would be interesting to know how Apple would react to such speculation.
Amidst all the excitement about the upcoming watch and its released date, there is no official word yet from Tag Heuer or any other collaborating partners about the specs and features of the watch. This has added more fuel to the anticipation and excitement among the people. There have been a few report thoughts that suggest the ‘Connected’ watch will feature Intel’s Quark SoC and a battery life up to 40 hours with a single charge. Rumours also have it that the new watch may feature the Android Marshmallow OS. However, none of this news is confirmed.
On the pricing front, the Tag Heuer Connected is slated to be priced at around $1800 to $2000, which makes it the costliest Android Watch ever made. It is 10 times more expensive than the average affordable android watch available in the market. Pricey or not, the watch will surely has its own takers. We are pretty sure; the Tag Heuer loyalists are just as excited as we are for the company to unveil its new watch in the New York City on November 9th.
