What this luxury watch and App for Golfers bring on and off the green.
There are at least a dozen of golf apps, but Swiss luxury manufacturing company TAG Heuer claims to have the best one. Let’s see how the advanced Swiss watchmaking technology is combined with the passion for golf in this smartwatch and app from TAG Heuer.
TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 “Golf Edition” and the unique 3D course mapping available with the TAG Heuer golf app are the new must-haves for golfers.
This digital wristwatch combines a golf-inspired design and shock-resistant materials with the most personalised and advanced golf app, which has 3D renderings of more than 39,000 courses and provides comprehensive performance analysis.
Equipped with multiple sensors, such as GPS, NFC, an accelerometer, a gyroscope and a microphone, this golf-themed smartwatch boasts 4 GB of storage and a battery life of 25 hours. It can also send messages, receive notifications, play music and download other apps. A black rubber strap is included in the watch box and complements an everyday look off the golf course. Three golf balls stamped with the TAG Heuer logo are also included in the special packaging.
Among the most distinguishing features of this 45 mm timepiece is the black ceramic bezel ring, which is laser engraved with a scale of 1 to 18 – indicating the 18 holes in a round of golf. Filled in with white lacquer, the scale stands out from the predominantly black finish of the lightweight watch. The bold black ceramic lugs complement the sandblasted case and caseback, which are fashioned from black PVD titanium. The smartwatch is worn on a white strap with green stitching.
“The TAG Heuer Connected Modular45 ‘Golf Edition’ was designed specifically for golfers and anyone who is fascinated by the sport,” said TAG Heuer Project Manager Matthieu Soudan.
“Every aspect of the smartwatch and the app – from design to function – was created to enhance the player’s game. Off the course, the watch is a stylish accessory that features cutting-edge digital technology. It’s important to point out that it is, first and foremost, a connected watch, which means that the golf app is only one of many other apps and functions that can be used with the timepiece,” added Soudan.
Delivering key insights to improve golf performance, recording shot distances and scores, and displaying 39,000 golf courses around the world with precise 3D mapping technology, according to TAG Heuer, this new golf app is more advanced than any similar technology currently available on the market. This professional sports watch and the app can even be used in amateur tournaments.
The TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 smartwatch displays distances to greens and hazards. The easy-to-read information has incredible precision that is accurate to within one metre. The position is captured on the watch using the integrated GPS sensor.
Rather than just displaying distances, the TAG Heuer Connected Modular45 “Golf Edition” displays high-end mapping of the entire hole using vector technology that shows the course in more detail – including the bunkers, fairways and rough – compared to the satellite mapping technology used by other similar apps. The maps are interactive and scrollable.
The app replaces the paper scorecard with an interactive alternative. Within seconds, the player can enter the wearer’s score and those of their golf companions and keep track of the leader board as they go. Whether they choose stroke play, match play or stableford, the TAG Heuer golf app can keep track of the score on the wearer’s wrist. When the shot-recording feature is activated, the shot distance can be recorded as the player walks to their ball. Shot distance is accurate to within one metre.
TAG Heuer Golf has maps of more than 39,000 golf courses around the world. It can accompany any player no matter where the love for their sport takes them. The database is constantly updated to include new courses or changes to existing courses, ensuring that the 3D maps are as accurate as possible.
