The Tag Heuer Connected 2020 is the ultimate luxury smartwatch. It’s a feature-rich digital device dressed up as a luxury Swiss timepiece.
It’s engineered for active users. However, with the look of the iconic Tag Heuer Carrera series, the third-generation Tag Heuer smartwatch is also highly elegant.

Ideal for day and night wear
How does the Connected 2020 stack up to other smartwatches? What’s immediately apparent is that Tag Heuer has continued its commitment to using only high-end materials.
The watch casing is crafted from stainless steel or titanium and features a brushed ceramic bezel. Functional stainless-steel pushers are located on either side of the crown.
Straps vary from chunky rubber bands to iconic stainless-steel bracelets.
The effect is of a solid, compact smartwatch, suitable for day and night wear.

Adjustable analogue and digital watch faces
A clever touch is the availability of a series of analogue and digital watch faces. This means wearers can change the look of the watch to suit their preferences and moods.
Classic Tag Heuer is offered alongside various more utilitarian designs. All of these can be customised with different colours.
Proprietary Tag Heuer apps
Tag Heuer has included four of its own apps on the Connected platform – a stopwatch, timer, golf app and sports tracking app.
The proprietary software is synched to a companion iOS or Android smartphone app. It’s accessed via the touchscreen or the functional buttons on the watch casing.
The sports tracking app features GPS connectivity and a host of sensors, including a heart-rate monitor, accelerometer, compass and gyroscopic sensors. They deliver real-time data during workouts to optimise fitness and activity tracking.
Powered by Google Wear OS
As the Tag Heuer Connected smartwatch runs on Google Wear OS, users have access to the usual features – messaging, notifications, music, weather updates and Google Assistant.
Google Pay facilitates quick, easy and efficient contactless payments.
The suite of Google Fit apps provides a comprehensive selection of activity-based tracking capabilities. It dovetails well with the proprietary Tag Heuer sports apps.
