The news about the smartwatch maker coming up with a successor to the TAG Heuer Connected smartwatch has been doing the rounds for quite some time now. Last month, a report suggested the release of TAG Heuer’s second-generation smartwatch with next-generation Google OS, the Android Wear 2.0 in March 2017.
Based on this report, it is assumed that the Tag Connected Modular smartwatch will come with customisable straps which can be modulated according to convenience. The smartwatch will also include the option of switching the digital wear to a traditional one.
Although, till now nothing has been leaked or reported about the price tag the upcoming TAG Heuer smartwatch will carry, we believe it will cross the $1,500 mark, solely based on the cost of its successor.
The first wearable devices to sport the latest Android Wear 2.0 OS came from LG and were launched on February 10th namely LG Watch Style and LG Watch Sport. These two smartwatches have made their way into the Korean market and are up for grabs starting today.
