The Swiss company has done something similar with the Connected Modular 45. In 2019, it came out with an edition designed specifically for golfers that features an app to improve their game. Now it has done the same with the 2020 Tag Heuer Connected that went on sale in March starting at $1,800.
To remind, the 2020 iteration in the Connected lineup comes with some big upgrades over the predecessor. The company has decided to do away with customizable or replaceable components and focus on delivering a streamlined device that works well. It also throws a heart rate monitor into the mix for the first time.
The golf edition builds on this and makes it more of a wearable for those into the sport. You get everything from the regular edition including the 1.39-inch OLED touchscreen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 3,100 chip, built-in GPS, 440mAh battery. There’s also 8GB of storage and 1GB of RAM for lag-free performance.
The luxury golfing device has a 45 mm black titanium case that is paired with a sporty white rubber strap with green stitching. There’s a matte black ceramic bezel ring laser around the display, engraved with the numbers 1 to 18 indicating the 18 holes in a round of golf. Interestingly, the watch display marks the hole you are playing in real-time on the numbers.
You also get the great iOS/Android golf app to go along with the watch along with the new TAG Heuer Sports application. The golf specific app features key insights to improve your game including shot distances, hazards, layups, scores and pro stats. This has detailed info on over 40,000 golf courses captured using 3D mapping technology which cover some 99% of golf courses worldwide. The golf app also has a new Driving Zone feature which utilizes stats from a player’s past rounds to calculate the best zone for them to target.
The TAG Heuer Connected Golf Edition can be purchased from the Tag Heuer website for $2,550. The device is also available at TAG Heuer boutiques and select retailers.
