Tag Heuer Launch New Luxury Smartwatches
Tag Heuer were quick to jump into the smartwatch realm with the original Carrera Connected, now they’re upping their game with the 42mm Connected Calibre E4 and 45MM Connected Calibre E4.
If they don’t sound too different, note that the design changes a bunch with the size of the case, and neither is too similar to previous Connected Tag Heuer smartwatches.
There are two versions of the 45MM Connected Calibre E4 – one made from polished stainless steel with a black polished ceramic bezel and a steel black case, the other is made from titanium with a black diamond-like carbon coating and a titanium case back.
Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100+ processor, it has a 1.39″ OLED screen with 454 x 454 pixel resolution and runs off Google’s Wear OS2, with eligibility to upgrade to Wear OS 3 when it launches later this year.
Get into it and you’ll find a heart rate sensor, NFC for mobile payments, altimeter, compass, GPS, and a 430mAh battery.
The 42mm Connected Calibre E4 replaces the large bezel, reduces the thickness of the case and ditches the rubber coating from the crown.
With just one version, the case is polished steel, with a domed sapphire crystal.
The screen is 1.28″ with 416 x 416 resolution, while the processor, software and other hardware features are the same as the 45mm Connected Calibre E4. Still, the battery has a smaller capacity at 330mAh.
There are a bunch of new apps to go with these units, including a new guided workout app, with on-screen prompts for a selection of workout routines, which are customisable so you can add in any plan you already have on the cards.
Meanwhile, the Tag Heuer Sports app has been given a boost, with tracking for running, cycling, golf, swimming and walking.
