Tag Heuer collaborates with Intel to launch the Connected Modular 45 smartwatch

Tag Heuer collaborates with Intel to launch the Connected Modular 45 smartwatch

As was the case with the previous model, powering the device is an Intel Atom Z34XX, and 512MB of RAM. Nonetheless, the ability to dump the digital half if you find it's not to your taste, yet still keep some watch functionality, is a welcome improvement.

The lithium battery is said to offer more than 24 active hours of life.

If you have money to spend then you're probably going to love Tag Heuer's new Connected Modular 45 intelligent timepiece which comes with a 1.39-inch AMOLED touchscreen display. Customers will be able to swap out the smartwatch's head and replace it with a mechanical one like the Tag Heuer 02T Tourbillon Chronograph or a Calibre 5. This is the successor to the company's previous luxurious Android Wear-powered smartwatch "Connected" and has been developed in collaboration with Intel and Google. The brand aims to sell some 150,000 units of the new version, Biver said.

The Modular 45 is now available through Tag Heuer and could be a compelling option for those seeking a high-end Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch. The Connected Modular also has 18 different straps to choose from, including ceramic, titanium, rubber or leather.

TAG Heuer in association with Intel has unveiled the next generation of their Connected smartwatches lineup. Incorporated into the watch's hardware - the motherboard is produced in Switzerland to ensure the watch can have the Swiss Made tag - is Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS and NFC connectivity. The body itself comes in polished or satin finishes, and the customization options range from different bracelets, straps, buckles, modules, and even watch dials. There are 11 main designs to choose from, and TAG Heuer says 45 additional combinations will be offered at boutique shops around the world.

The Prime Minister also claimed that it is " very clear " the Scottish people don't want an independence referendum. Ramping it up about how she is going to go for that second independence referendum.

TAG Heuer Connected 2 has been confirmed to finally debut next week.

Tag Heuer's Connected Modular 45 Watch will cost £1,400 in the UK.

Best of all, by making the transition from smartwatch to mechanical watch seamless, TAG Heuer still maintains the classic notions of watches as heirloom pieces while remaining completely technologically relevant.

But you're not just getting a Swiss-engineered smartwatch with the Modular 45-you're getting an ecosystem.

The watch and its various modules and accessories can be explored on TAG Heuer's website and should be available for purchase soon. That's one thing when you're talking about a $200 watch - it's another when it's eight times that price.
