The new TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 solidifies the brand’s leadership in the luxury smartwatch segment while offering a slimline look built primarily for elegance
Earlier this year, TAG Heuer introduced the latest generation of its connected watch, the TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4. In essence, this new generation of the Connected offers two models, each of which highlights an aspect of TAG Heuer’s Connected identity. Building on the brand’s long-standing heritage in the sporting world, the larger 45mm model offers a striking redesigned sporty look, while the smaller 42mm model offers a slimline look built primarily for elegance. The best part is, each showcases TAG Heuer’s trademark design codes and access to its ever-growing ecosystem of sports activities, wellness apps and elegant watch faces inspired by iconic chronographs.
Functionality at its Best
As mentioned earlier, the newest Connected Watch is presented in two different models. The first one is the classic 45mm model, which now combines a sporting design with the feel of a traditional high-end timepiece and a strong ceramic bezel. That being said, the design has changed significantly from previous models, giving the watch an increased sense of flow and making it easier to wear on the go.
The crown of the 45mm TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 has a large diameter and stands out from the watch, while the case slopes inwards so it feels lighter on the wrist. Another standout feature is design of the pushers, which now have a mechanical feel, highlighting TAG Heuer’s 160 years of heritage in making high-end mechanical watches.
On the other hand, the new 42mm version of the watch has a more sophisticated and elegant look, since it was designed to appeal to all. It will look good at an elegant event, in the office or while playing sports. Compared to its bigger sibling, this 42mm version has a thinner case, with ergonomic steel pushers, a thin bezel and a bracelet fully integrated into the design. It’s strikingly different from the 45mm model and is built for those who demand streamlined elegance as well as the latest wellness and sports functions.
Speaking about functions, the new TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 also offers a curated selection of new watch faces which highlight the many aspects of TAG Heuer’s Connected universe. For instance, there are mechanical watch faces based on classic TAG Heuer timepieces, a new “Riverside” watch face that is animated with an immersive futuristic effect of time elapsing and the new “Wellness” watch face that offers information on exercise direct from the watch’s home screen, such as live heart rate and the number of steps that was taken that day.
Meanwhile, the famous TAG Heuer Sports app—which has been revamped to allow users to keep track of running (indoor and outdoor), cycling, swimming, golf and walking performance over the past years—now has an all-new feature which is guided workouts. In short, this functionality helps on-the-go users stay fit, without having to keep a smartphone nearby, as these workouts consist of exercise programs with pre-set lengths. Uniquely, when users finish their exercise, the watch vibrates to indicate that it is time to move on to the next one.
Powered by Wear OS by Google, the TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 is also accompanied by a large variety of straps, including a leather or steel strap for a more refined, elegant look, as well as multi-colored rubber straps for a more sporty and rugged feel. As a final touch, this Connected Watch also adds an altimeter, which measures the altitude at the wearer’s current location, which can be surprisingly helpful during outdoor activities such as running or cycling.
All in all, the TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 ensures that the new generation of Connected remains a world leader in luxury smartwatches. Without a doubt, this is definitely the ideal companion for anyone who desires a statement luxury watch that will help improve and enhance their individual way of life while offering the daily benefits of a connected and active lifestyle.
