The Sweden-based luxury watch manufacturer TAG Heuer decided to launch a new line-up called Connected Module 41 over the past weekend. The company described the latest line-up as representing a smaller and cheaper version of the Connected Module 45 range, which was brought to the market in Q1 of 2017.
According to a report published by Android Police, the Connected Module 41 features 41mm in diameter. There are about seven standard models of the Connected Module 41 that have been released. What’s even more exciting is that each of these modules can be used with nine different straps, including three new colors namely Pink, Blue, and White.
The smartwatch is powered by Android Wear, unfortunately, the company hasn’t provided any specific information exactly which version it will be running. However, given that the Connected Module 45 will be receiving the Oreo update, it is natural for one to assume that the Connected 41 will come powered with the same as well.
As for the price, the Connected 41 Module will be priced at around $1200. While it may appear like a lot to pay for a smartwatch, as noted by Android Police, “The Connected Module 41 is a luxury smartwatch, so it does come with the sort of quality and craftsmanship you’d expect from a premium watchmaker like TAG Heuer.”
The watch features a scratch-resistant sapphire glass screen, built from strength-filled materials such as titanium and gold. Connectivity-wise, the smartwatch supports NFC, Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi as well as GPS. The line-up also works with Android/Google Pay. Its display sports 390 x 390 pixels resolution. According to the announcement made by the company, the brightness of its screen has been improved to 350 nits. Internally, the watch has received a significant update, doubling the RAM and storage to 1GB and 8GB, respectively.
