Tag Heuer shoots, scores with new Premier League Wear OS watch face

TAG Heuer | Premier League Interactive Watchface

If you own one of Tag Heuer’s Connected smartwatches, whether it’s the Connected Modular 45 or our preferred model, the Connected Modular 41, and are a soccer fan, the company has the watch face for you. It’s designed to keep you up-to-date with all the 2018-2019 Premier League season’s developments, right on your wrist.

Tag Heuer announced the special interactive watch face to celebrate the extension of its partnership with England’s top flight league. Tag Heuer will continue timing games — the company was the very first official Premier League timekeeper — whether its while the match is in progress, or through the international television broadcasts.

The exciting part about the watch face is the deep customization, as rather than follow each team and risk an overload of information, the watch face can be linked to your favorite team. This way all the match timings, live updates, player changes, and the scores delivered will be ones you want to see. Notifications can also be added, providing alerts on when the game starts, and goals scored at exactly the time they happen. Tag Heuer’s going to want to make sure all this is accurate too. Its reputation is at stake.

If you think this sounds slightly familiar, it’s similar to the way Hublot’s Big Bang Referee smartwatch operated during the World Cup. The special, limited edition watch provided up-to-date information on games, including goal alerts, was worn by World Cup referees, and shown off at the Baselworld 2018 watch fair. Hublot and Tag Heuer are both part of the LMVH luxury product conglomerate.

Additionally, Tag Heuer has also collaborated with sports teams and personalities in the past. Several big-name sports stars including Tom Brady and Jeremy Lin have designed custom Wear OS watch faces, for example. The Connected Modular range of watches also includes special editions linked to sports sponsored by Tag Heuer, with the most recent being a stunning collaboration with F1’s Aston Martin Red Bull Racing.

For now, though, it’s all about soccer (or football, whatever works for you). Sadly, if you’re a Premier League fan without a Tag Heuer smartwatch, you won’t be able to use the watch face on any other Wear OS device — it’s an exclusive to the brand. Those lucky enough to have a Connected Modular watch on their wrist, can download the watch face for free from Google Play now.

Tag Heuer reimagines its beautiful, $1,800 WearOS smartwatch for 2020
tag heuer connected 2020 smartwatch news hands

Tag Heuer, the first Swiss watchmaker to embrace touchscreen smartwatches, has announced the third generation of its wearable, called simply the Tag Heuer Connected. The company has stayed with a similar design to the previous versions, but with some key alterations both inside and out to bring it up to date.

This is a luxury smartwatch, which means it’s made from high-end materials. The Connected watch comes in a choice of three polished or brushed stainless steel cases, plus one made from grade 2 Titanium, each with a fixed ceramic bezel. On the stainless steel models, this comes in either a metal or PVD black finish, while the Titanium version gets a matte black PVD bezel. (PVD, or Physical Vapor Deposition, is a process that vaporizes a number of metals, and then binds it on a surface, in layers, in a heated vaccuum.)

Tag Heuer’s Golf Edition smartwatch is a lot more than just a flash of new color
Tag Heuer Connected Modular 4G Golf Edition

Tag Heuer has announced a special-edition Connected Modular 45 smartwatch that's aimed squarely at those who spend many hours on the golf course, and want to stay ahead not only in the game but also in technology. Called the Golf Edition, it should not be dismissed simply as a new color scheme, because it’s a lot more than that.

When we first heard it was based on the Connected Modular 45 smartwatch, rather than the Connected Modular 41, we were a little disappointed. The Modular 45 -- so-called because it has a 45mm body -- was always too heavy, and a little ungainly. The smaller 41mm Modular 41 has almost perfect proportions. However, the Golf Edition is different from other Modular 45s, as it’s made from titanium and covered in a black PVD finish.
Strong, but light
Titanium is strong but light, and it makes a big difference in the way the Golf Edition feels on your wrist. It’s still quite large, but the improved aesthetics around the bezel makes it appear less bulky. Combine this with the lower 64-gram weight, and it’s definitely suitable for wearing everyday, or for hours on the golf course. Take note of the bezel’s design too, with 18 numbers referring to the amount of holes on a course. It’s made from ceramic, so those white lacquered numbers won’t fade, and a sheet of sapphire crystal covers the 400 x 400 pixel screen.

Wear OS vs. Apple Watch

Wearable tech is growing more popular every year. We've seen fitness trackers soar, smart jewelry take off, and luxury brands are beginning to get in on the act with hybrid smartwatches. But true smartwatches are one of the most popular choices among early adopters of wearable tech. Big names such as Huawei and LG offer devices running Google's Wear OS (previously known as Android Wear) smartwatch platform, while Apple is on its own with the Apple Watch.

If you're ready to strap on a smartwatch, you have a choice between two dominant platforms: Google's Wear OS or Apple's Watch OS. Which one will suit you better, and which should you avoid? We've compared the specs, features, and designs to help you decide where to spend your cash.
