    All first-generation TAG Heuer connected watches now to feature Android Wear 2.0

    All owners of first-generation
    TAG Heuer Connected watches will now be able to discover the benefits of the new environment developed this year for the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45.

    La Chaux-de-Fonds, 7 April 2017 - Android Wear 2.0 is officially rolled out on all TAG Heuer connected watches, including first-generation models.

    Following the Swiss launch on 14 March last month of the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 (the second-generation Swiss Made TAG Heuer connected watch equipped with Android Wear 2.0), all first-generation TAG Heuer Connected watches will now be updated to Android Wear 2.0.

    In addition to the full range of benefits offered by this update, which will be installed automatically via OTA (Over the Air) updates, Android Wear 2.0 will bring substantial improvements to the interface and features directly integrated in the watch. For example, the Play Store will be directly available on the watch (previously it was necessary to use a phone for downloads), and a virtual keyboard now makes it easier to reply to messages.

    The update will also specifically allow owners of first-generation TAG Heuer connected watches to benefit from:

    - The full range of new digital watch dials (30 watchfaces) featuring renowned TAG Heuer dial designs, some of which are historically inspired, such as the famous panda dial
    - Improvements such as Ambient mode to ensure the watch can always be recognised (addition of counters and minute track), the sunray dial decoration, enhanced metal finishes on the indices and hands, the addition of three new designs (Vintage dato 45, Heuer calibre 17 and Heuer 01), and the addition of seven new colours to the existing designs
    The TAG Heuer Studio (4560 possible combinations) that allows you to create your own dial as if you were a watchmaker or designer.

    In the blink of an eye, you can choose your standard dial with its functions, and customise all the colours, the look of the metals on the indices and hands, the details in SuperLuminova™ and the lacquered tips for the finishing touches… anything is possible! With TAG Heuer Studio, you can co-ordinate your watch to match your business suit, your running gear or even your swimsuit. And if you fancy setting the wallpaper to show one of your own photos – perhaps a photo of a loved one, a beautiful sunset or a fond memory – you can give your creativity free rein because anything is possible.
    - Customisation of interactive counters: watch owners can now also choose to display up to three of their favourite apps on the dial using interactive counters: the number of steps taken, the number of calories burned, the time in another geographical zone, the dollar rate, free time before the next meeting... these are just some of the many options depending on your interests. Everything you need, right before your eyes.

    Automatic installation procedure:

    - The watch should be charged overnight, ensuring that it is connected to the phone (or directly by WiFi) and the phone connected to the internet
    - Around 3 am, the watch will automatically download the update
    - The next morning, a notification will prompt the user to install the update (takes approx 5’)
