Today, Swiss watchmaker Tag Heuer made the announcement that they will be releasing the Connected Modular 45 Golf Edition. This smartwatch was developed exclusively for golfers, as its name suggests, and it comes preloaded with an application that can help you play better.
The high-end golfing apparatus is available in two versions, one with a diameter of 45 mm and the other with a diameter of 41 mm. Both watches have a ceramic bezel ring that has the numbers 1 through 18 laser carved into it. These numbers represent the 18 holes that are included in a standard round of golf. In order to ensure that the lettering stands out against the black finish, it is filled with white lacquer. PVD titanium was used in the construction of the casing.
The screen of the watch is made of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and measures 1.39 inches diagonally (the screen on the 41mm version measures 1.2 inches). The multi-finger recognition capabilities of the touch display are impressive.
Under the hood, there is a great deal of intelligence to be found, which is to be expected. The Golf Edition includes all of the same features as the standard model, including GPS, NFC, water resistance up to 50 meters, 4 GB of internal memory, and a lithium battery that provides full power for more than 24 hours.
Because it contains both an accelerometer and a gyroscope, the Wear OS device monitors the most fundamental aspects of your fitness (but no heart rate sensor). Additionally, it is able to send messages, get notifications, play music, and do additional functions.
In addition, Tag Heuer has created a golf app that is compatible with iOS and Android-based smartphones. It provides essential information that will help you better your game, such as shot distances and scores. In addition to that, it is packed with information on some 39,000 golf courses that have been mapped in three dimensions. The application may be downloaded for free on the watch’s official website, and it is also compatible with prior iterations of the watch.
“The TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 ‘Golf Edition’ was built with golfers and anybody else who has an interest in the game in mind. According to the Project Manager for TAG Heuer, Matthieu Soudan, every part of the smartwatch and the software, from its appearance to its functions, was developed with the intention of improving the player’s performance.
“When you’re not on the course, the watch is a fashionable accessory that flaunts cutting-edge digital technology. It is essential to emphasize that it is, first and foremost, a connected watch; hence, the Golf app is just one of a great number of different apps and features that may be utilized in conjunction with the wristwatch.
The Connected Modular 45 Golf Edition has a price tag of CHF 1,950 and can be ordered directly from the Tag Heuer website. It comes with a gorgeous white strap made of synthetic leather and rubber, with green stitching on the synthetic leather. In addition, the box contains a black rubber strap, as well as three golf balls with the Tag Heuer brand imprinted on them.
