TAG Heuer to reportedly launch new Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch mid-March

In January 2017, TAG Heuer CEO Jean-Claude Biver said that the company will release a new Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch in May 2017. Now it appears that the new smartwatch will arrive sooner than expected. 

Android Central, citing people familiar with the matter, says that TAG Heuer's upcoming smartwatch will be called TAG Connected Modular and will arrive March 14, 2017. As the name suggests it will be a modular smartwatch.

The source suggests that the TAG Connected Modular will "have a unique set of features that make it a true one-of-a-kind Wear 2.0 smart watch". It will sport fully customizable lugs with swappable straps and clasps. The smartwatch will also have a custom automatic watch head, that will allow the wearer to switch between the digital connected Android Wear 2.0 face and traditional analog clock movement.

The report does not reveal any details on the specification, however TAG Heuer CEO, back in January revealed that the company's upcoming watch will be made available in two sizes (for men and a smaller version for women) in different colors, pack better hardware, feature improved display, Intel processor, NFC (for payment function), more accurate GPS and longer battery life.

The TAG Connected Modular will be the successor of the $1500 Connected, which was a huge success for the company, selling over 56,000 units in a span of 14 month, almost three times more (56,000 units) than the expected target. The expectation will be same with the upcoming TAG Connected Modular as well. Earlier the company had revealed that it aims to sell 150,000 units of smartwatch in 2017.
