Tag Heuer tees off with special Golf Edition of its latest smartwatch

The new Tag Heuer Connected Calibre E4 smartwatches have only recently gone on sale, but that hasn’t stopped the company from announcing a special edition version. The Connected Calibre E4 Golf Edition probably won’t come as a surprise to anyone familiar with the brand’s previous models, as it also released a Golf Edition of the Connected Modular 45 in 2019.

The Connected Calibre E4 Golf Edition is based on the 45mm version of the new range, not the sleeker 42mm version we recently reviewed. This means it has a larger ceramic bezel set around a flat sapphire crystal over the 1.39-inch AMOLED screen, while the 45mm case is made from titanium with a Diamond-like Carbon (DLC) finish. The crown has a rubber surround to make it easier to twist and navigate through the watch’s menu and golf course maps, and there are two pushers for other functions on either side of it.

What makes the Golf Edition unique are all the design changes and extras. The bezel proudly shows the Golf Edition name and has a 1-18 scale for use on the golf course, which matches up with an indicator found in the Tag Heuer Golf app. It comes with a choice of a white rubber strap with a golf ball-like dimpled design, or a simple black perforated strap to make it a little less sporty. As a fun and unusual addition, the titanium clasp on the white strap has a built-in magnetic ball marker.

Made for use on the golf course, there have been some changes made to the Tag Heuer Golf feature for this new watch, which is part of the Tag Heuer Sport app pre-installed on the watch and available for both iOS and Android phones. The Connected Calibre E4 Golf Edition now has automatic swing detection, which activates when it registers a swing movement at the tee area on a golf course. It also works with the app’s Driving Range feature, and enhances historical data to show a detailed heat map of previous performance, and to help better identify club strategies.

The app contains detailed 2D maps of 40,000 golf courses around the world, with a redesigned interface to show distances, score, hole numbers, and club information on the screen during play. When your round is over, if you’re using the iOS app it can generate 3D visualizations with a shot trajectory for each hole. Outside of the golf app, there are several new Golf Edition watch faces including ones that match your choice of strap.

Like the Connected Modular 45 Golf Edition, the Calibre E4 Golf Edition comes in a special presentation box that includes three Titleist golf balls and a spare ball marker. It’s available to purchase now through Tag Heuer’s online store for $2,650 or 2,200 British pounds, which is $150/100 pounds more than the standard titanium Connected Calibre E4 with DLC.

Put on Tag Heuer’s Android Wear smartwatch, and you’ll look like a Kingsman agent
Tag Heuer Connected 45 Kingsman

While top Mi6 secret agent James Bond wears an Omega Seamaster watch, Kingsman agents are going to sport Tag Heuer timepieces in the Kingsman: The Golden Circle movie, with one of them will being the Connected Modular 45 Android Wear watch. Fans wanting to mimic the suave style of stars Colin Firth and Taron Egerton have the chance to buy their own Kingsman special edition of the Connected Modular 45, if they have $3,650 spare to spend.

What’s special about the Kingsman edition of the watch? It’s more than just a flashy Android Wear watch face, thankfully. It will be instantly recognizable to those who are in the know due to the rose gold lugs on either side of the matte black body, which attach to one of two unique strap designs: A bright orange Alcantara leather version with a rubber back, and a brown leather sports strap. Flip the body over and a Kingsman logo is stamped on it, and it all comes in a large and impressive presentation box.

Astonishing attention to detail, superb build quality, and the latest tech inside: This is a true Swiss smartwatch for the connoisseur

If you want the real deal, by which we mean a smartwatch with true Swiss-made credentials, there is only one choice: the new Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45. It’s the second smartwatch from Tag Heuer, following the Carrera Connected last year, and once again Intel has been heavily involved with the device’s creation. But the partnership goes much deeper than simply stuffing one of Intel’s chips inside a Tag Heuer designed body. The two companies collaborated so closely, the end result combines Intel’s technical know-how and Tag Heuer’s passion for watches in a way that truly makes it stand apart from the rest.

TAG Heuer Connected

Swiss watch brand Tag Heuer has returned to the world of smartwatches, after first embracing the technology in 2015 with the Tag Heuer Carrera Connected. The new model, called the Connected Modular 45, makes the Carrera Connected look like a tentative, exploratory first step. For the new watch, Tag Heuer will offer 11 standard models, with another 45 available to special order, and a huge range of interchangeable parts for a total of 500 different style possibilities.

Intel worked with Tag Heuer on the Connected Modular 45, providing its Atom processor and technical abilities to engineer a full titanium metal body, yet still include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and NFC. The watch will run Android Wear 2.0 and support Android Pay, plus a companion app provided by Tag Heuer will expand the range of features accessible on the device. A microphone built into the watch will enable voice activation. You can even use the watch without a smartphone, at least for tracking exercise and location. The app also boasts an unusual calendar feature that works with certain watch faces, reminding you if you’re running behind by still showing past due appointments.
