Luxury Smartwatch: Tag Heuer Connected

Modelled after Tag Heuer’s famous Carrera models and made in partnership with Google and Intel, the Connected combines traditional watch styling with cutting-edge digital guts. While users have easy access to over 4,000 Android apps through Google Play, they may want to make room for the watch’s own Insiders app, which offers travel, fashion and dining tips in almost 300 cities around the world. It is also remarkably comfortable on the wrist, thanks to its grade 2 titanium case. And its sapphire crystal touchscreen works much better in bright sunlight, compared to many existing smartwatches.

But perhaps the best feature of the Connected is its trade-in programme. The watch has a two-year warranty, but owners can opt to swop their smartwatch for a mechanical one (a real Carrera) for another US$1,500 ($2,200). Or for those who enjoy the modern usability, the watch can simply be upgraded with next-generation tech. This renewabilty means it will not be obsolete anytime soon.
