Hands on: TAG Heuer Carrera Connected
The importance of the TAG Heuer Carrera Connected smartwatch cannot be overstated. It’s not the same as Apple making the Apple Watch — that was a technology company making another piece of technology. This is a Swiss watchmaker making a piece of tech. At launch, TAG Heuer’s CEO called it a meeting of Watch Valley and Silicon Valley, but it’s a partnership formed out of necessity, not desire. If smartwatches are going to steal sales away from watchmakers like TAG Heuer, they’ll all need weapons like the Carrera Connected in their arsenals to properly do battle.

What is the Swiss watch industry’s first Android Wear watch like? We tried one on to find out, and the first impression is a big one. Literally, because it’s massive. It’s really, really big. The body is 46mm, much larger than the 42mm Apple Watch, and even large Android Wear devices like the already hefty LG Watch Urbane. It’s also the largest watch TAG Heuer sells.Look at the size of that thing
The body is made from grade 2 titanium, and is very thick, but also very light. The strap is made from rubber and comes in different colors, but no other materials are available at launch. It’s attached to the body using oversized lugs, and the strap itself is thickened to compensate for the overall size. That way, it doesn’t not look out of place next to the huge watchface. It’s adjusted for a perfect fit, easily sliding through a clever titanium clasp before locking into position.
