Today we have the launch, in United States, the first of the smartwatch clock Tag Heuer – the Carrera Connected – for the price of $1500. According to Jean-Claude Biver, CEO of Tag Heuer, we can find many functions in this clever watch very similar to those of Apple Watch (including, it is permissible to connect the smartwatch clock to camera phone).
The launch took place in New York at noon (at 3:00 pm in the Eastern time), and 1000 units were made available for sale; in Japan, the product will arrive in 12 days, and the rest of the week to Europe. Developed in partnership with Intel and Google, the smart watch uses an Android operating system Wear, but following a design characteristic of the Carrera line of the company.
This part of the visual, it is worth noting, is not only on the external design, but for the operation of the OS itself, with the right to change the appearance of the clock as you wish. Check out how the smartwatch clock works in the video below:

Only For Those Who Can
The price of the smartwatch of Tag Heuer is quite high already in dollars and, as is to be expected, if you come here to Brazil we can wait for an extremely significant increase. The clock must cost $1,650 (approximately R$ 6,260, on current listing) with the addition of 10% government tax, however, here in TimeDictionary should choose for more than 12000 real R$ with our taxes if you want to import it.
Despite the tremendous value, Biver says the Apple Watch is not a direct competitor of the Carrera Connected. The reason would be the proposal that, within two years, you can change your smartwatch clock model by a mechanical clock, which would have the same look and feel of the watch itself.
