Cheap Tag Heuer Replica Connected Modular 45 Smartwatch Aims To Be Eternal

Today, Cheap Tag Heuer Replica debuts the follow-up smartwatch to their successful TAG Heuer Carrera Connected from 2015. It isn’t just a new product, but a sign of a long-term investment in the category of smartwatches. The 2017 TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 smartwatch is an upgrade across the board both as a digital connected wearable device and as a modern luxury product. Modern utility as well as future “eternity” are key components of this new high-end timepiece’s value proposition. Cheap Replica Watches wants this “Swiss Made” smartwatch to be useful as a piece of modern technology today, while also desirable as a timeless item to wear tomorrow. Let’s see how they went about engineering that for what is among the neatest-looking smartwatches I’ve worn to date.

Last month, I spoke with TAG Heuer CEO Jean-Claude Biver about the upcoming Connected Modular 45 watch. He explained some of his overall philosophy toward the next smartwatch from what is traditionally a mechanical Tag Heuer Replica Watches maker, as well as what he and the company learned after putting the first Carrera Connected smartwatch on the market. For Jean-Claude Biver, it seemed that the two most important elements in the Connected Modular were both a celebration of its status as a “true” Swiss Made product, as well as the ability of the product to last beyond the normal ownership expectation period of most consumer electronics purchased today. He knows that smartwatches last only a few years in terms of their utility, but wants to make sure that consumers remember that “mechanical watches will work 1000 years from now as long as there is someone who knows how to operate a screw driver.” Dissect that statement as you like, but it is more than well-known that watch consumers feel comfortable buying mechanical watches at high prices precisely because they do not fear “further obsolescence.”


A lot of people speculated about exactly what the “Modular” part of the upcoming product’s name would mean. Even though the Tag Heuer Replica has now debuted, there are still a lot of questions about the future of the product and what TAG Heuer will release for it. The promise of being able to swap out certain components for cosmetic or technical upgrades is a key part of the product’s appeal, and one can only guess what new modules TAG Heuer will release in the future. It is also important to explain that even though TAG Heuer now has a facility in Switzerland to assemble its smartwatches, it continues to have close ties to Intel. TAG Heuer even employed a former Intel worker to run its connected watch division, which is located in Palo Alto, California – the heart of Silicon Valley.


This is very important because it shows TAG Heuer understands what is required to seriously develop not only a family of smartwatch products, but to also continually support it through software updates as well as maintain close connections with other technology products. Cheap Replica Watches own team easily remarks that the biggest difference between a mechanical watch and a smartwatch from a company perspective is that work on the former ends when it leaves the factory, while work on the latter continues almost perpetually.
TAG Heuer claims that 56 case style combinations are available to begin with, but that only 11 of them will be available in retail stores. The other 45 will be available as a special order purchasable online or in retail stores. These latter options will, for the most part, be the colorful aluminum bezel options that mark the sportier, more youthful look of the watch. I personally really like the PVD-coated matte black titanium case with the black ceramic bracelet. The black and blue bezels are in ceramic, while there are also a few steel bezel options as well.

When the original Cheap Tag Heuer Replica came out, it was loaded with a few attractive TAG Heuer-branded dials, but I never felt that TAG Heuer continued to supply enough really compelling ones for people to download post-launch. TAG Heuer agrees, though they are much more invested in offering software updates moving forward. An interesting new feature for the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45, in addition to a reported 30 included dials, is the availability of software known as TAG Heuer Studio. While I don’t think the software will allow for true graphic design of new dials, it does promise a healthy assortment of personalization options within the many available dials to change colors and other features to personalize the look of one’s Tag Heuer Replica Watches.


Modularity for the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 is thus an important strategic element of the timepiece’s appeal for a range of consumer types, price points, as well as the ability for the watches to have appeal to owners in the years (as opposed to months) to come.

2017 Monaco Grand Prix With Tag Heuer Replica Watches

Held in the small Principality of Monaco, right off the south of France on the Mediterranean Sea, the Monaco Grand Prix has been held annually since 1929. As a sponsor of the Automobile Club de Monaco as well as official sponsor of the Red Bull Racing Team, Tag Heuer Replica Watches hosted several guests and press to enjoy not just the Formula 1 race, but all the requisite fêting that’s associated with the event. Of course, no event like this would be complete without some appropriate timepieces. First, the new TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 01 Red Bull Racing Edition watch, a subtly modified Carrera Heuer 01 honoring the F1 team sponsored by TAG. Complementing this “new”Tag Heuer Replica was the motorsports heritage timepiece classic – a “Steve McQueen” Heuer Monaco.


In this article I discuss my experience at the race as well as some watches. I’ve added photos from not just the event but Monaco itself throughout which I hope will help give you an idea of the setting.
Though it’s far from news at this point, Ferrari’s F1 team took the top two spots at the Grand Prix, with Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen taking the first and second spots, respectively. Red Bull Racing’s own Daniel Ricciardo came in third. What stood out to me was the sheer narrowness of the Cheap Replica Watches streets coupled with the tight turns throughout. For those who have been to the race and seen the track this isn’t news, but I really got a true feeling for it after a lap on the race route.


Though Monaco itself is small in size at .78 square miles, there’s nothing lilliputian about the place. Well known for its lax, or rather, nonexistent, tax laws, Monaco is the second most densely populated country in the world, after Macau. It’s populated with multi-millionaires, billionaires, their cars, and their yachts. For the annual race, the population swells to several times the 40,000 residents (I believe there are something like five or six public colleges in the United States that have more students enrolled) with the entire city-state essentially serving as the venue.It’s tough to separate Replica Watches with the man at the helm, none other than Jean-Claude Biver. Making his presence known by donning chef’s whites and a toque blanche, Mr. Biver pitted brand ambassadors, actor Chris Hemsworth, and Red Bull Racing’s Daniel Ricciardo against each other in a match-up worthy of Thor and an F1 racer: a fondue contest. Of course, Biver is known for making his own cheeses so it’s no surprise that this cheesy sauce battle took place. I’m not entirely sure who won, but I believe Hemsworth took this one.


Of course, this isn’t the first time aBlogtoWatch readers have heard about the connection between motorsports and Cheap Tag Heuer Replica. Ariel did his best Anthony Bourdain with his Chasing Time video at the Indianapolis 500 last year. You’ll remember he accompanied the lucky winner of the 2015 Watch & Experience Giveaway where he won a trip to the race and got his own Carrera timepiece.


Thousands of words have been written on the Carrera Calibre Heuer 01, a watch which goes into the “Hublot-lite” territory with gusto. A contemporary timepiece with the design language of a much pricier watch, it’s completely emblematic of the direction TAG Heuer is going in to appeal to a whole new audience base. Where the Monaco evokes images of a romantic technicolor racing heritage, this watch is the “now” as 2017 was Tag Heuer Replica Watches second year as partners with Red Bull Racing, which is about as long as the Heuer 01 has been released.


There were moments of some downtime on the Tag Heuer Replica, where we lodged and also attended several parties. During one of these brief moments, I got a moment to sit down with the brand’s newest ambassador Chris Hemsworth, who has played Thor in Marvel movies like The Avengers and Captain Kirk’s dad George Kirk in the J.J. Abrams Star Trek movie. He chose to wear a Carrera Heuer-02T Tourbillon in gold, but what I really wanted to know was what his on-screen progeny Captain Kirk would wear. He thought about it for what I thought was far too long before suggesting it would obviously be the Connected watch. I’m not entirely sure what generation it would be by the time we reach the Star Trek universe timeline but Hemsworth agreed. Anyway, he couldn’t have been more gracious and I look forward to seeing his watch appreciation in the future.
