TAG Heuer's Connected Modular 45 smartwatch specs and price leaked ahead of official announcement
TAG Heuer confirmed a few days ago it will launch a new smartwatch today, March 14. The wearable device hasn't been announced yet, but the Swiss company already posted some info on the smartwatch on its official website (crazy, right?).

Apparently, the smartwatch will be called TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45, and it will be available for purchase in the United States for $1,650.

As expected, the Connected Modular 45 will be powered by Android Wear 2.0, and it will pack all the features you would expect from a modern, high-end smartwatch.

But the most interesting aspect lies in the fact that those who decide to purchase it will be able to switch between the Connected (smartwatch) module and the mechanical module. Unlike the previous TAG Heuer Connected smartwatch, the Modular version will come with “Swiss Made” certification thanks to this mechanical module.

According to TAG Heuer, customers will be able to choose from a wide range of materials, colors, and combinations. Besides the two swappable modules, the smartwatch will also feature interchangeable lugs, straps, and buckles.

These accessories will be available in various colors including black, blue, red, yellow, green, orange, electric blue, and white. Ceramic straps and titanium bracelets will be available too for those looking for something more exquisite.

Specs-wise, the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 will be equipped with an Intel-based chip, 4GB storage and an AMOLED display of unknown size. It will also feature water resistance, Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC (Near Field Communication) and Android Pay support.

We don't have information about the battery's size, but it's supposed to last more than 24 hours, which is quite decent for a smartwatch.

hmmmm what a rip off.. A TAG isn't any better quality than a Samsung Gear S3, and the S3 looks better.. Pass

I'm curious about their Heuer Carrera trade-in program (Heuer Carrera are around $5000 new) It may make their watch great value if we can sell the Heuer Carrera for a good price 1. Buy a Connect for $1500 2. Trade-in for a "special edition" Heuer Carrera for another $1500 3. Sell "special edition" Heuer Carrera for ~$3000 and recoup all or most money spent But we wont know until 2018, their trade-in program opens when their watch is 2yrs old

I have been using a Garmin Vivoactive HR watch for a couple weeks. Tracks my steps and heart rate all day. Sleep at night. Heart rate and GPS during exercise. Displays all of the notifications I want. And here is the kicker, a full week of battery. Not bad for $219.
