The main feature of the new watch is its modular concept. Their case can be easily replaced with the classic version in the form of a three-hand movement or a movement with a tourbillon and chronograph. What's more, you can customize almost every part of the Connected Modular 45, from the straps and lugs to the rotor and buckle. Parts are available in a variety of colors, and you can choose from materials: titanium, ceramics, gold and more.
The "smart" clock module runs on the latest version of the Google operating system - Android 2.0. The device has an NFC module that will allow you to pay for purchases using Android Pay (according to rumors, this payment system may start working in Russia in May). Display - 1.39-inch AMOLED (resolution not specified) - covered with sapphire crystal, which protects it from scratches and damage.
The device is powered by an Intel Atom Z34XX processor, and the company says it allows the Modular 45 to last up to 30 hours on a single charge, even in always-on mode. There is also a GPS module, and the watch itself is protected from water (withstands immersion up to 30 m). But the heart rate sensor and LTE module from TAG Heuer were not installed.

Since the Connected Modular 45 was developed in collaboration with Intel, Google has developed exclusive software for them. TAG Heuer has not released details yet, however, according to The Verge, we are talking about a personal digital assistant. He is able to determine what you are doing, based on your geolocation and time of day, and behave accordingly: for example, if you are late at work, reminders of what you wanted to do at home, he will voice you the moment you cross the threshold your apartment. In addition, the assistant can answer questions and search for information on the web without losing the context of previous requests (like Google Assistant). At the start of sales, there will be no assistant in the watch - it will be added later in updates. However, all the main functions of Android Wear (receiving calls and sending SMS, receiving notifications, etc.) can be used.
Tag Heuer Connected 45 is already available to order online in the US, UK and Australia. They will appear in Russia on March 28. Price - $ 1600.>
