Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer announced Connected Modular 45 Golf Edition – a golf-focused version of its Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45 Wear OS smartwatch at the Baselworld 2019. According to the company the new watch is “A special edition to improve your game on golf courses around the world. Discover a unique watch and application dedicated to golf, and enjoy a connected caddy on your wrist for all of your games.”
The overall design of the watch is golf-centered, and its shock-resistant 45mm dial boasts a black ceramic bezel ring engraved with the numbers 1 through 18 for the 18 holes in a round of golf. As it is made from ceramic, the white lacquered numbers won’t fade, and a sheet of sapphire crystal covers the 400 x 400 pixel screen.
The titanium body is strong but feels light due to its lower 64-gram weight. It is suitable for wearing for hours on the golf course.
The fine-looking strap is made of white synthetic leather with green stitching making it perfect to wear on a sunny day.
The smartwatch is identical to other Connected Modular 45 watches. Powered by Atom processor, the watch has 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage space, GPS, NFC, microphone, tilt detection sensor, gyroscope, a 410-mAh battery, and runs on Google Wear OS.
The sapphire cover glass is 2.5 mm thick, and scratch resistant.
The free Golf app works on both iOS and Android smartphones. It has 3D renderings of more than 39,000 golf courses and also provides performance stats. But, you’ll need your smartphone to see the 3D course mapping and the watch will display interactive 2D course mapping, reports Android Headlines.
TAG Heuer says its databases are up-to-date and it routinely checks for new courses and adds them to the database to make sure its 3D maps are accurate.
The watch comes in an attractive collector’s box. Inside the box there is an extra black rubber strap and 3 Tag Heuer-branded Titleist golf balls.
The watch is available now for $1,850.
