Still, the industry of Smartwatches is relatively young, yet is already clear that expensive watches in the course of the next few years will have a more severe level. A trend that is aware of the Swiss luxury brand TAG Heuer, and should be countered with the with the first own Smartwatch .
Similarities to the Withings Activite
According to a recent report, the luxury brand is to present already in early January at the CES show in Las Vegas the first own Smartwatch. The watch this without the touch screen applied in many Smartwatches come out, so that this the Withings activite should be similar. We remember: that sparked a dispute about whether she was actually a Smartwatch or merely a conventional watch with Smartwatch functions.
Basically the TAGHEUER look rather watch like a conventional clock as a Smartwatch, yet she is powered with an Intel processor that is installed in many other Smartwatches. The smart features of the watch should focus but mainly on the measurement of health data, such as the calories consumed.
No competition with current Smartwatches?
It remains to be seen whether TAG Heuer manages to gain market share in the highly competitive Smartwatch industry, with its first smart watch. It is also possible that the goal of the watch should be not an attempt to gain market share, but the extension of a classic luxury watch with smart features.
