Tag Heuer's chief does a 180 degree flip; he now plans on wearing the Apple Watch
posted by Alan F. / Jan 21, 2015, 1:13 AM
TAG Heuer is also developing its own smartwatch. Biver realizes that the technology will have to be imported from Silicon Valley considering that these are parts that no one can make in Switzerland. But for its smartwatch, can the company keep the "Swiss Made" label that Biver says "is more than a label at TAG Heuer, it’s a state of mind." To earn that title, 50% of the parts of a watch must be Swiss made. That is going to be a challenge. The watch will end up being developed outside Switzerland
The executive no longer has negative comments to say about the Apple Watch, which is now expected to launch in March. "It’s a fantastic product, an incredible achievement," he says. His original comments called the Apple Watch something that looked like it was designed by a first-year student. He also said back in September that with the timepiece, Apple had made "some fundamental mistakes."

WTF? Were exactly in this article TAG's chief said he will wear the apple watch? What a poor title for an article! And of course Apple watch will be crap just like all the smartwaches out there but since it will have an apple logo on it it will sell like hot donuts.

The last sentence of the first paragraph in this article. And if you follow the link to the Bloomberg article... "One person who plans on wearing the Apple Watch is likely Biver himself, he said. “It’s a fantastic product, an incredible achievement,” he said. “I’m not just living in the tradition and culture and the past, I also want to be connected to the future. The Apple Watch connects me to the future. My watch connects me to history, to eternity.”"

To called smart watch crap without owning any show a pretty shallow individual. I owned 4 different smart watches and I can say each has each own strength. My only reservation is battery life. Since battery would eventually die out and the manufacturer don't provide a mean for the battery to be swapped. $400 for a average 15 months use is too costly for me! I prefer my CASIO G shock watches as I am able to wear it for as long as I want, spent like $25 to swap the battery and it will last me another 2-3 years.
