TAG Heuer Launches Golf Watch and App
TAG Heuer Connected on and off The Green
Combining advanced watchmaking technology with a passion for golf, TAG Heuer not only announces its new Golf smartphone app but also a special edition Connected Modular 45 smartwatch.
Designed specifically with golfers in mind, the new TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 “Golf Edition” is linked to the TAG Heuer Golf app. The app enables players to get the most out of their rounds of golf no matter what course they’re playing on.
Following the introduction of the second generation Connected in 2017, the Swiss watchmaker now combines its passion for sports and innovation with its interest in the world’s number one individual sport. The TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 “Golf Edition” and the unique 3D course mapping available with the TAG Heuer Golf app are must-haves for every golfer.
TAG Heuer Project Manager Matthieu Soudan told us:
The TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 ‘Golf Edition’ was designed specifically for golfers and anyone who is fascinated by the sport. Every aspect of the smartwatch and the app – from design to function – was created to enhance the player’s game. Off the course, the watch is a stylish accessory that features cutting-edge digital technology. It’s important to point out that it is, first and foremost, a connected watch, which means that the Golf app is only one of many other apps and functions that can be used with the timepiece.
TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 “Golf Edition”
The new edition digital wristwatch combines a golf-inspired design and shock-resistant materials with a personalised advanced Golf app. The app features 3D renderings of more than 39,000 courses and provides comprehensive performance analysis.
The classy 45 mm timepiece has a black ceramic bezel ring, which is laser engraved with a scale of 1 to 18 – indicating the 18 holes in a round of golf. Filled in with white lacquer, the scale stands out from the predominantly black finish of the lightweight watch. The bold black ceramic lugs complement the sandblasted case and caseback, which are fashioned from black PVD titanium.
The smartwatch is worn on a white strap with green stitching – how on trend is that?
The 400 x 400 resolution 287 ppi touchscreen is covered with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Equipped with multiple sensors, such as GPS, NFC, an accelerometer, a gyroscope and a mic, the smartwatch also boasts 4 GB of storage and a battery life of 25 hours.
Of course, the Golf edition can do anything that the TAG Heuer Connected watches can do. So, send messages, receive notifications, play music and download other apps to your heart’s content.
Also bundled with this latest edition is a black rubber strap for when you’re not out on the green. Additionally, three golf balls stamped with the TAG Heuer logo are also included in the special packaging.
TAG Connected Golf App
This is the first time that the Swiss watchmaker has developed an app for iOS and Android smartphones. The Golf app is available to download for free and can be used on all TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 smartwatches.
The new app delivers critical insights to improve performance. Here you can record shot distances and scores, it also displays 39,000 golf courses around the world with accurate 3D mapping technology. TAG boasts that this app is more advanced than any similar technology currently available on the market.
