Say hi to the Carrera Connected.
Tag Heuer has officially announced the Carrera Connected – the company’s first smartwatch based on Android Wear. The Carrera will go on sale today in Europe, priced at about $1500.
The company has strictly stated that it does not want to compete with the Apple Watch, which also sells premium versions of the Apple Watch that can reach up to $17,000. Additionally, since it is running on Android Wear, the smartwatch is more suited for Android users, considering the fact that the Carrera Connected runs on Android Wear and has limited functionality on iOS even if it is compatible.
One thing that Tag Heuer mentioned is that you will be able to exchange the Carrera Connected for a similar Carrera watch for another $1,500, since the smartwatch will be considered obsolete in about two years.
