TAG Heuer Connected watches sell much better than expected, new models due in May


The many experts who claim nobody intends to get a smartwatch evidently neglected all the people who got the premium Connected watches from TAG Heuer. The $1,500 Android Wear-powered devices have become a success, according to TAG Heuer Chief Executive Officer Jean-Claude Biver.

In a meeting with Neue Z├╝rcher Zeitung, Biver, who is additionally head of watchmaking at LVMH, declared that the firm had actually only expected to offer 20,000 systems of the TAG Heuer Attached watches. In the 14 months because they launched in November 2015, the device sales of the Linked watches have reached 56,000, or almost 3 times what the company predicted.

Naturally, this suggests we could expect new TAG Heuer Connected versions to be released, as well as Biver suggested in the interview that would certainly occur at some point in May. The brand-new versions would certainly still have Intel chips inside, yet he stated that TAG Heuer will launch smaller sized expect ladies in addition to larger models. He additionally gave some vague tips regarding what brand-new features and renovations would be included, including GPS, a "repayment system" (NFC, possibly?), better displays as well as longer battery life. He is now predicting that the firm could offer 150,000 devices of these new smartwatches, and also based upon the background of the earlier Attached versions, we assume that is significantly a possible goal.

Another fascinating thing pointed out by Biver is that TAG Heuer really has a workplace inside Intel's school in Santa Clara, The golden state. The concept is that TAG Heuer can be extra connected (no pun planned) to the heart of Silicon Valley as well as its modern technology industries. It seems quite like the watchmaker is serious about its smartwatch strategies, which is in sharp comparison to various other companies that have cut or perhaps cancelled their wearable device schedules.
