Tag Heuer, official Formula One timekeeper, used last weekend’s prestigious Monaco race as the backdrop to unveil the TAG Heuer Connected Rose Gold. It retains the specifications of the original model but swaps out the titanium case in favour of an 18K rose gold one to transform it into a more luxurious sibling.
True to its image as a luxury Swiss watchmaker, it was a natural step for TAG Heuer to release a smartwatch with a classic design, made not just from modern materials such as titanium, but also a precious metal very familiar to the manufacture: rose gold.
Under the hood, there are no changes to the smartwatch’s specifications. Like the original, it is powered by an Intel processor and Google’s Android Wear operating system. Tag Heuer recently confirmed that it will be upgradeable to the new Android Wear 2.0 when it comes out.
