Luxury Swiss watchmaker Tag Heuer emerged on the smartwatch scene last year with the Tag Heuer Connected. The idea was to provide a robust smartwatch that was backed by the quality and manufacturing standards that people expect from a Swiss watchmaker like Tag Heuer. While a successor to the original Connected smartwatch is going to be released soon, the company has confirmed today that the Tag Heuer Connected Android Wear 2.0 update is going to be released soon.
Android Wear 2.0 is the latest iteration of Google’s wearable device OS. It was first supposed to be released late last year but the company decided to delay the release by a couple of months as it wanted extra time to polish the update.
Google finally released Android Wear 2.0 several weeks ago. Some of its manufacturing partners have also come out with smartwatches that run on Android Wear 2.0 straight out of the box. It goes without saying that in the coming months we’ll see more and more of such smartwatches.
Tag Heuer CEO Jean-Claude Biver has confirmed today that the company is going to release the Android Wear 2.0 update for the original Connected smartwatch at the end of the month. A precise release date hasn’t been given but at least now we know that it’s going to be out in a couple of weeks.
