TAG Heuer unveils yet another crazy expensive Wear OS smartwatch with no LTE : If you found Montblanc’s newest luxury smartwatch a little rich for your blood, at a starting price of close to $1,200, wait until you hear how much TAG Heuer is charging for its refreshed collection of Connected timepieces.
We’re talking $1,800 variants with black rubber straps and stainless steel cases, a $1,950 model pairing a robust steel bracelet with a 45mm case made from the same material, and a $2,350 TAG Heuer Connected flavor replacing the steel case with one constructed out of “ultra-light” titanium. That may sound like a ridiculous pricing structure for most everyday smartwatch users, but of course, this Swiss company has a radically different target audience than, say, Apple or Samsung.
Instead of selling millions of copies to the masses with razor-thin profit margins, TAG Heuer is perfectly content moving a much lower number of these bad boys at a massive gain per unit. Believe it or not, the upgraded TAG Heuer Connected is not even LTE-enabled, like the significantly cheaper Montblanc Summit 2+, although for what it’s worth, its list of features does include a built-in heart rate monitor, unlike its 2015 and 2018 forerunners.
That means the $1,800 and up price is almost entirely owed to the name on the back of this smartwatch, as well as its admittedly stunning design inspired by the luxury watchmaker’s “legendary chronographs.” Any takers?
